Hint of Chilli Carrot Crisps

I find my snacking is what really lets me down when it comes to losing weight. Like others, I find it hard to resist the junk food, why do chocolate and crisps have to taste so good? So I've been searching the web to find some healthy alternatives that will trick my mind into thinking I'm having something a little bit naughty!! On my search I found carrots crisps but on they're own they sounded a little bland so I added a little something to spice them up…

hint of chilli carrot crisps


* 2 carrots
* 3/4 tsp chilli oil
* 1/2 tsp salt


* Preheat your oven to around 180ÂșC gas mark 4/5.

* Slice your carrots thinly, if they are took thick they won't cook properly, they'll be more soggy than crispy.

* Place thein in a jug and add 3/4 tsp of chilli oil and 1/2 tsp of salt, mix until all carrot slices are covered.

* On a baking spread them out evenly and bake for around 15-25 minutes. Keep and eye on them as they can go from cooked to burnt quite quickly.

You can eat these straight from the oven of store them in an air tight container for up to three days. I love these as it is just like eating crisps except you are consuming less than half the calories!!



  1. Oooh, crisps are a bit of a weakness of mine so will definitely be trying this, they sound delicious!

  2. My weakness is chocolate. And cheese. I can take or leave crisps but I do like the idea of these, I imagine the sweetness of the carrot works really well with the chilli.

  3. These look great and really easy to make too also cheaper than buying a bag crisps, what's not to like? :)

  4. I'm definitely a savoury snacker as opposed to a sweet one, these sound absolutely perfect!

  5. I have such a savoury tooth and crisps are my complete downfall. These sound like a reasonably healthy alternative. Definitely going to give them a try and also do a batch with garlic oil.
