Baked Beet Chips

 

It's finally summer! Once again, with the end of the month comes another installment of Secret Recipe Club reveal day! This month, I was assigned to Natural Noshing, a blog written by Nora. Nora lives in Montana with her hubby and dog. Back in 2012, they opened a frozen yogurt store, and I think that is the coolest thing ever! Nora eats gluten free, and has cut back on her refined sugar, so her recipes are all relatively healthy! Of course, there are a few guilty pleasures, like Ice Cream Cake Ball Bombes and Peanut Butter Bliss Ice Cream, which were two of my top contenders. But, I've been doing Beachbody's 21 Day Fix, and unforthunately neither of those two recipes fit into my meal plans, so I decided to make these beet chips! I'm not a huge potato chp fan, but if they are in front of me, I will munch on them until the bowl is empty, so if I'm going to snack, I may as well snack on something healthy, that also counts as a serving of vegetables! While these beet chips took a little longer than expected, the end result was delicious! A snack that you don't have to feel guilty about eating. Just as healthy as kale chips, but prettier! Just do yourelf a favor, don't overlap them on the baking sheet or they willl never cook! That may have something to do with the cook time issue I had! If you are looking for an earthy and healthy snack, look no further than these chips! Thanks for the recipe, Nora! I had a great time getting to know you this month!

1 Beet, peeled
Olive Oil
Sea Salt, to taste (optional)

Using a mandoline slicer, thinly slice the peeled beet. Toss the beet slices in olive oil and spread them in a single layer onto a baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with sea salt and bake at 325 for 20-30 minutes, or until crispy. Cool slightly and serve.

Beet chips have such an amazing color! I love their sweetness and wish my beloved husband was not so anti-beet! ;-)

Yumm!! What a fun, healthy, and pretty treat!

Happy reveal day! Fun that we both had each other this month :) I haven't made these in years so thanks for the reminder! They are more time intensive for such a short list of ingredients, but I'm a huge fan of beets! Good luck with your 21 day sugar fix! Loveeeeeeeed the tacos- thanks for the inspiration!

These chips are so pretty! Veggies chips are such a great snack. I should really make my own. Happy Reveal Day!

Happy Reveal Day! Can't wait until beet season arrives here in WI so I can make these yummy beet chips~ Lynn

I definitely need to try these. I've made sweet potato chips before but never thought of beets!

What a great pick for SRC this month, and I am so going to try this, I have two beets languishing in my crisper as I type. I can't wait to try them.

We love beets around here and this looks like a great new way to prepare and enjoy them.

Yummy! I've never tried making beet chips before, but I love beets, so it looks like an awesome idea!

I have two beets leftover from a recent Farmer's Market trip. Now I know what to do with at least one of them! :)

Looks great! I might like this with a little yogurt to dip them in. Great reveal!

Great choice this month. I love a healthy alternative to regular potato chips, and this definitely qualifies as both a vege serving and a guilt-free treat. Can't wait to try.

How interesting, I've never made beet chips before. Love the color!
