Healthier Alternatives to Potato Chips by Eden Godsoe

by Eden Godsoe, posted to Food & Drink

I love potato chips. They are my downfall. Salt and Vinegar are the best. But enough of potato chips. This list is all about healthier alternatives to potato chips that still satisfy.

See all Top 10 lists from Food & Drink

Added to Your List

Kale Chips

As my friend Wona who started "Cooking with Trader Joe's" says - crisp kale chips may be the healthiest a snack can get! Similar to potato chips, but tastier and far healthier.

Added to Your List

Plantain Chips

Plantain chips may not quite as healthy as kale chips but certainly better than potato chips. Trader Joe's has good ones.

Krista: I want these SO badly right now that I can't even describe it.

Added to Your List

Spicy Roasted Chickpeas


My mouth waters just thinking about these. And even I can make them.

Krista: Is there a place to buy ready made? Like...a TJ's version?

Jennifer Wright: I would love your recipe for these Eden. I have only bought ready made versions:)

Eden Godsoe: Jen - Click through on the link/image for the recipe I used. Super simple even I can do it!

CatK: These are amazing but you definitely need to roast them long enough. You want them crispy rather than soft.

Suggested by Claudia

Loving these new chips and they come in many flavors: BBQ, Sea Salt & Vinegar, Parmesan & Garlic..How am I suppose to pick just one?!

Eden Godsoe: I love these too. Especially the Sea Salt & Vinegar. I want to investigate these & the sweet potato chips further to find out if they are truly healthier than potato chips before I kid myself.

Added to Your List

Wasabi Peas

Suggested by Krista

The ones from Trader Joe's are pretty good, definitely have a kick to them.

Larissa: These ARE good, thanks for introducing them to me. They're not too spicy or salty, have a good crunchy texture too - not too hard or soft.

Eden Godsoe: I love wasabi peas. Didn't know TJs had some good ones. May need to add that to the things I buy regularly from TJs.

Added to Your List

Baked Lentil Chips

Baked chips are not only delicious, but healthy as well.

Another TJ's find, this lentil chips are much more healthy than a potato chip. You'll have to try them and see if you like!

Easy, quick recipe!

I'm not a big banana person but once you add "chip" to something I suddenly get more interested.
