I thought these Keto Avocado Snacks were delicious with the lime, parmesan and Italian spices.
They have a sharp and complex taste (which I love).
A nice glass of Chianti or tannic chardonnay would have gone nicely with these too.
Ada agreed with me about the deliciousness although I am sure she did not consider the wine pairing.
Bran did not care for these made with the Parmesan cheese and if you are not a fan of really sharp cheese you may want to consider using a milder cheese. Although, you would need to dry them out significantly longer due to the moisture content.
She really prefers these easy Keto Tortilla Chips.
Haven't tried different cheese so we are going with what we know in this recipe.
Either way remember that Keto is all about healthy delicious food that you love to eat.
Looks pretty simple right?
And it really is. All you need to do is mash avocados, add shredded cheese and bake until you have crispy crackers.
How to Pick a Good Avocado
A good avocado will make this recipe easier and better.
Plus if you like avocados and guacamole you know that a perfect avocado is wonderful and elusive thing.
An Avocado that is not yet ripe is bland and a weird kind of chewy.
And an over-ripe avocado is just a shame because it may have been only a matter of hours ago that it was perfect and now it has black and grey spots that used to be a beautiful light green.
As I mentioned in the opening, making these with Parmesan is going to make a sharp and kind of nutty flavor.
Recipe Tip: How to Get Avocado Chips Really Flat
Above you see a picture of the chips on parchment - because I used an avocado that was not quite ripe enough and it was impossible to get them flat enough with just the back of the spoon.
Don't despair, there are a couple of easy ways to flatten them.
I put them in the oven and let them cook for about 10 minutes then I took them out and put a piece of parchment over them and used a rolling pin to roll them flat.
The other way you could do this is to oil the bottom of a measuring cup and just squish them.
With either technique it is best if you cook them for a time before you flatten them. It is less likely to stick to the cup or the parchment that way. Plus, it will soften the avocado.
Recipe Tip: To get Them Really Crisp.
You may find that your chips don't want to get crispy.
This will probably happen if you don't use a really ripe avocado. That's what I did, that's how I know this is a problem.
I flattened my chips, and cooked them for what seem like too long.
I checked my oven to make sure that it was actually on and it looks like it should be all-systems-go. But my chips were not crunchy - they were more like soft thin avocado biscuits.
So here's what I did - I discovered this on accident.
I didn't open the oven, but turned it off, and just left the chips in there on the baking sheet until the oven cooled completely.
This make took an hour or so, but once cold, the chips were crispy and delicious. Ahh, the things I do to get a crunchy Keto Cracker....It wasn't hard. It just didn't provide the instant gratification that I normally like when making a snack.

- Put heaping teaspoon size scoops about 3" apart on a parchment covered baking sheet.
