Protein Tortilla Chips

Protein Tortilla Chips

Want the perfect quick snack to enjoy at the weekends? Well today is a good day for you! And what’s more versatile in the world of snacks than tortilla chips, right? Especially high-protein tortilla chips!

The beauty of making your own tortilla chips is that not only are they so, so easy, you can also flavour them however you like: make them spicy, fajita-flavoured, ‘pizza-flavoured’, ‘cheesy’, and so on.  These below are plain, waiting to be transformed into nachos when the beef, black beans and salsa are added!


166 grams liquid egg whites
66 grams chickpea flour
10 grams psyllium husks
3 grams wheat bran
8 grams golden linseeds
2 grams hemp seeds


1. First, mix all of the above.

2. Then, on a non-stick pan, spread the mixture as thin as you possibly can (use a spoon). Then: flip it, plate it, NEXT!, spread mixture thinly, flip it, plate it, NEXT!, and so on (basically – it’s like making crepes).

3. When they’re all done, you slice them into triangles and bake them in the oven under high heat (add some sea salt before baking for the crunch and saltiness of tortilla chips; you can also spray with olive oil!

4. Take them out when they look ready!

  1. …granted – cornmeal flour doesn’t have all the ‘perks’ of chickpea flour BUT the end product will taste a lot more like corn tortillas chips – just experiment with whatever you have handy, season it, cook it, flip it, bake it 🙂

  2. Hi April! try it and let me know! I think it’d work BUT the texture may suffer (this is why I threw in chickpea flour so the mix is a bit heavier). I’m gonna keep playing around with the recipe though. You know Trader Joe’s soy/flaxseed tortilla chips?(they use”yellow corn, soy grits, corn or sunflower oil, brown flax, sea salt, and a trace of lime”)? Well, that’s kind of what I was going after here – making a similar kind of tortilla chip but one that is higher in protein and fiber 🙂

  3. I need to find some chickpea flour at whole foods so i can make these…i miss chips And i’ve tried the soy/flax tortilla chips, they’re REALLY good!

  4. I like chickpea flour but like I said, you can play around with other flours I’m sure (try soy if you have any lying around). Making your own chips is SO easy and yummy! Yeah soy/flax tortilla chips rock. I think next time I make mine, I’m gong to add a lot more spice to the ‘dough’ and some lime so they can resemble the ones from trader joe’s bit more 🙂

  5. Wow this sounds amazing i cant wait to try it out.

    this blog is brilliant so many good ideas. Now i have no excuse not to eat high protein all the time even when snacking

  6. Heres an addition to complete the chips-n-dip theme:
    Take 1 cup of your fav. cottage cheese (i prefer nonfat), throw it in a blender with some green onions, Italian seasoning and black pepper. Instant Ranch Dip. When I read this, I figured it wasn’t going to work. But I kidd you not, tastes EXACTLY like ranch dip.

  7. Just made a variation on these tonight using what I had laying about… Will write it here so I don’t forget for next time 🙂

    180g egg whites
    50g buckwheat flour
    10g oat flour
    10g quinoa
    10g pea protein
    4g nutritional yeast
    8g milled flaxseed

    Served with 400g of extra lean beef cooked with spices, 100g melted cheese, home made low fat/low carb sour cream, home made salsa and a whole jar of jalapenos. Boom!
