Super easy-to-make snack that is low-carb, high-fat, and moderate protein. Lacto-ovo vegetarian (not vegan). Recipe has only one ingredient: cheese! So we’ll start with the instructions.


  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. (Foil or cooking spray will not work.)
  3. I start with a block of mild cheddar cheese from Trader Joe’s. A typical size might be .66 lb. (or 10.56 oz.).
  4. Cut block in half, then cut each half into 12 cubes for a total of 24 cubes.
  5. Arrange 12 cubes on each baking sheet spaced equidistantly apart.
  6. Bake at 350° for 12-16 minutes, depending on desired softness or crispness. With my oven, it usually takes about 13 minutes to get them just right.
  7. Let cool, then put chips into a suitable serving dish.
  8. Makes 24 chips. Serving size is one (1) chip, though you probably can’t eat just one!

Serving Size: 1 chip
