parmesan crisps

clara went to whole foods with my husband and brought home a box of parmesan crisps.  she loved it so much, i looked for it next time i was there… but they said it was a promotional item and they no longer carry them.  the person who works at the cheese section told me you can just bake parmesan cheese in the oven.  so here it is… i cannot even call it a recipe =)

you can add some herbs too!


1/4 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese (finely grated)


preheat oven to 300F.

On a parchment paper lined cookie sheet, pour 1t of parmesan cheese about 2 inches apart.  pat it down to flat disks.

Bake for 7-8 minutes.


Makes 12

This is great to pack as snack for school

Tiffany started making keto meals for her daughter Clara in 2010, after Clara’s diagnosis with Infantile Spasm. While tough at times, managing between the strict requirements of the diet, Clara’s very sophisticated sense of taste, an older daughter whose overwhelming enthusiasm to help is only rivaled by her ability to make a much bigger mess in the process, and a dog who is determined to eat Clara’s leftovers to the detriment of her own waistline, Tiffany is grateful that her hands are being used to heal Clara. Tiffany hopes this website would be especially helpful to those working or single moms who do not have the time to design and try out new meals. Bon appetit to all the keto kids in the world!

    Just to let folks know – I take a hard block of parm and slice thinly (very thin) then microwave it on parchment paper. About 30sec for 15g of parm. Easier than shredding, patting, and baking. I make a snack out of combining these crackers with mac nuts or pecans and use the calculator to meet the appropriate ratio

    I hope this isn’t a silly question but here it goes–does the parm. crisps weigh the same after being baked?

      NOT a silly question at all! I have not compared pre-cooked weights with cooked weights, but I strongly suspect that the cooked crisps will weigh less than the un-cooked. When they are baked, the moisture (water) content will “cook out”, resulting in a lighter crisp. You will need to calculate and weigh these in the raw state to have accurate nutrition.

    what ratio is this I didn’t see it noted?

      Hi Mandi,
      Hard block parmesan cheese is 8.94g of protein, 0.81 carb,97 calories, 0.66:1 ratio for every 25g. Different brands can vary, don’t use the parmesan cheese in the green can!
