Healthy Spicy Carrot Chips
It Carrot be more Healthy
Carrots are packed with goodness – antioxidants, fibre, vitamins and minerals. We learned as children that carrots help with eyesight (the bunny in glasses image stays with me until this day). It is however beneficial for more than just your sense of vision. Beta-carotene, the antioxidant found in carrots, converts to Vit A and therefore this vegetable gets top marks for maintaining healthy skin, nails, and eyes.
Carrots are a plenty in our house. Not only is it nifty for quick snacking, I often use it for a fresh juice. Simply combine fresh carrot with apple, pineapple, and ginger for a healthy veggie drink. My son loves snacking on them and I often include raw carrots in his lunchbox.
How To Make The Best Carrot Chips
If you are craving the idea of chips and are opting for a healthier version, well, here you go. You don’t have to give up your chip life!
First off prep your carrots by peeling and cutting them lengthwise in thin strips. Next combine coconut, almond flour and some flavoursome Moroccan spice. Simply coat your carrots in the flour spice mix and bake until crisp.
You can combine any combination of spices if you like – turmeric, cumin, coriander – these are all great contenders.
Carrot Chips might just become my new favourite thing!
