12 Healthy Homemade Chip Recipes


Entice your picky eaters with healthy fruits and veggies made into crunchy baked homemade chips! These colorful and creative snacks are a hit with kiddos of all ages.

Who doesn’t love chips, right? They’re the perfect snack. Crispy, crunchy, portable and highly addicting.

For most of us, portion control is really tough when chips are around, and I’m guessing it’s the same with kiddos. While we can control the amount we serve them at home, wouldn’t it be better if we could just have a healthy option that we didn’t have to worry about how much they’re eating?

Enter: healthy homemade chips!

They’re all made from whole fruits and vegetables, without a deep fryer. And don’t worry, they’re still crunchy and satisfying! Your kids will gobble these up without even knowing they’re eating a “healthy” snack. Win-win for you!

Oven Baked Potato Chips

Kale Chips

Struggle to get your little one to eat their greens? Try serving them kale chips and see how quickly they disappear. Even if you can’t fool them with the color, the taste and texture, will definitely have them coming back for more!

Salt + Vinegar Zucchini Chips

The title alone on these zucchini chips has me sold! Love that they taste like my favorite kind of chip but are low-carb, low sugar and totally healthy. I mean zucchinis!? It’s genius!

Crispy Sweet Potato Chips

Oven Baked Sweet Potato Chips -- quick, easy and SOOO tasty!

These are like the better version of sweet potato fries. I love how thin and crispy they are without any ingredient other than sweet potatoes! I’m betting you could totally jazz them up with spices, but these, served along side your favorite burger or sandwich? Sounds pretty perfect to me!

Oven Baked Beet Chips

Oven Baked Beet Chips -- healthy, homemade chips that even your kids will love!

There are plenty of bagged varieties of beet chips (and other root vegetable chips) out there, but I have to say these look even better. Not only is the color way more vibrant in the homemade variety, but since they’re baked and not friend, they hold on to a lot more flavor too!

Baked Banana Chips

How amazing do these banana chips look!? I have always loved banana chips – they’re the perfect blend of sweet and crunchy  – and are a great addition to trail mix. But most banana chips have added sugar, which make them more of a dessert rather than a healthy snack. These on the other hand, no sugar, no oil, no nothing besides bananas. Healthy snack or guilt-free treat!

Baked Radish Chips

Baked Radish Chips with sea salt!

If you aren’t a fan of radishes raw, these will certainly change your mind. When radishes are cooked the bitterness practically disappears and they have a mellow sweetness that is just delicious. Add to the fact that these little babies are also crispy and topped with sea salt? They’re the ultimate snack!

Garlic Roasted Kale Chips

Garlic Roasted Kale Chips -- crispy, salt and the perfect snack!

I had to share another recipe for kale chips because a) they’re amazing, b) they’re a great way to get your kiddos to eat their leafy greens and c) these ones just sound too darn good not to share. I love the use of roasted garlic and sea salt, but also that these pack a punch in the nutrition department! (and would even make an amazing alternative to movie night popcorn!)

Baked Carrot Chips

Crispy Carrot Chips -- dip these in a greek yogurt tzatziki sauce and it would be the ULTIMATE snack!

You’ve heard of carrot fries, right? Like sweet potato fries but with carrots. Carrot chips though? Even better. I love that these are made long instead of little rounds like most chips – they kind of remind me bacon strips, but obviously without all the grease and nastiness. Again, this recipe you could spice up however you like, but I’m thinking chili powder and sea salt would be delicious!

Spiced Toasted Coconut Chips

Toasted Coconut Chips with customizable spices!

Coconut chips seem to be all the rage now. There are tons of different companies making them now, but I have yet to find one that is 100% natural and pure. Most of the time they have some preservatives and almost all of them have cane sugar. These on the other hand? Totally healthy! And with a bunch of ideas for adding different spices so you can change them up how you see fit!

Baked Tomato Chips

I’ve only seen tomato chips once before and they were one of the best snacks I’ve ever had. We went through two bags in an hour and it was quite expensive. So when I saw you could make them at home…YES! These would be great served as a snack OR as an appetizer when you have friends over. They’re classy, tasty and healthy!

Cinnamon Apple Chips

Cinnamon Apple Chips - baked, crispy and SO delicious!

This is a fun way to add more fruit to your kids lunch box without having to cut fresh apples every day. Just whip up a big batch of these cinnamon apple chips and have healthy snacks all week long. You could even add a tablespoon of nut butter along side (if your school allows nuts)!

We’ll surely try these homemade chip recipes especially when we’re going to have a movie marathon because we’re so bored with popcorn already. Thanks for sharing!

Those look amazing! I’m gonna have to try zucchini ones (we call it courgette in UK) and radish ones too! Great! Thanks!
