What are they?

Beet chips are made from finely sliced beets, tossed in olive oil, and then roasted in the oven. They are the perfect snack to munch on without having to feel guilty. Believe me because my name is Dan and I’m a snacker.

How to make them

Part of the beauty of this beet recipe is that there are only two ingredients, and not many more steps!

Pick up a couple of fresh beets from the store or farmer’s market. Look for medium to large-sized ones as they are easier to cut and will give you bigger chips.

See the end of the post for complete directions.

  1. Wash and trim the beetroots, no need to peel them.
  2. Slice them (width-wise) using a sharp knife or a mandolin slicer.
We found this recipe in Power Foods.

Once the beets are sliced, toss them in some olive oil, and then roast in a hot oven. These beet chips are that simple to make!

Pro Kitchen Tips:

  • Slice the beets as thin as possible for crispy chips.
  • When the beet chips are finished roasting, leave them on the baking sheet until they are cool. This will help make them crispy.
  • Use two baking sheets and place one on the center rack and one on the bottom rack. Rotate their position in the oven midway through the roasting process.


Are Beet Chips Good for You?

These are definitely better for you than regular potato chips! Beets are dense in many nutrients can be part of a healthy eating lifestyle.

Are Beets Low in Carbs?

Beets are not carb-free but can be eaten in moderation if you are on a keto diet. This beet recipe has 6 grams of net carbs per serving.

How do You Make Beet Chips in the Air Fryer?

These are easy to make in the air fryer instead of a regular oven.

  1. Set the air fryer to 330°
  2. Arrange the slices in a single layer and air fry 15 – 20 minutes until crispy.
  3. The time may vary, depending on the thickness of the chips.

    1. Shashi,
      I agree. For me, these fall into the “Whodathunk” category. Delicious!! Thanks for the comments!

  1. Yum, these look delicious Dan! Found your link over on Milk & Honey, so I thought I’d come over to see what goodness you’ve been creating. Quite excited to look through your archives. First stop, though, will be these beet chips. I’ve been wanting to try vegetable chips at home for a while now, and these look like a perfect place to start! Thanks

    1. Laura,
      How nice of you to stop by, I especially appreciate your feedback. I have to tell you, this was my first time making vegetable chips and for all intent and purposes – these could easily had been fried potato chips; they are that good! Please, give them a try!! Thanks again for the wonderful comments.

  2. Oh, my stars! Dan, this is the perfect snack! And, I’m with Georgia…except I would dip them in some Come Back Sauce. Mmm! Thanks for sharing!

  3. I absolutely love vegetable chips! I’ve never made them myself but I think after reading this I am going to have to!

  4. I fall in the latter category. I think I was served canned beets as a kid on several occasions and never seemed to wrap my palate around them. But this post could change that. This snacker is pinning the recipe for a future run in the kitchen. Thanks for the inspiration Dan!

    1. In the directions it says “stack baking sheets on an oven rack” does that mean you put on rack on top of the other? One at angle on top of the other or are the baking sheets placed on two baking racks in the oven?
      I belong to a food co-op and today is delivery day and I’m getting 20 pounds organic red beets…🙌 so anxious to try this.

      1. Place each baking sheet of the beet chips on oven racks that are placed in your oven. You may want to rotate the sheets at regular intervals throughout the process to ensure even baking. Enjoy!

  5. These are too cool, Dan! Crispy beet chips dipped in Ranch dressing (I know, I’m so American) might actually convince me to like beets. Love how easy your recipe is!

    1. Georgia,
      I love your idea, and yes, so American!! Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment and I hope you have a great weekend!

    1. I think I like your dad, Pamela!! Thanks for the comments and I hope you have an enjoyable September weekend!
