Paleo “Tortilla” Chips


These chips are amazing!  I made them to go with my Paleo Chili recipe, because I really miss crackers in my chili! But they were great even the next day (I just stored them in a baggie)!!  I found the recipe here.  Thanks Edible Harmony!!


  • 2 cups of almond flour
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 1/2 tsp of garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp of cumin
  • 1 tsp of olive oil.
  • Cayenne pepper to taste (optional)

Preheat oven to 325 .  Mix all ingredients, divide in to two and press flat between two pieces of parchment paper using a rolling-pin.  Score into desired shape.  Bake for 10 minutes, turn and bake for another 3 minutes or until crispy and slightly golden brown.

Serve with salsa, guacamole or your favorite dip
