Looking for a salty snack without the guilt of fried, greasy potato chips? Try these black bean chips for a healthy guilt free treat. These chips are super easy to make, and only require a few ingredients, making this a win-win in my books!

So I’ve been buying bean chips from the store for my picky toddler. When he asks for chips or other junk, I’m always trying to find alternatives for him. So I figured it’s about time to make my own healthy chips. Well, these black bean chips came out great! Golden and crispy, just like potato chips. Plus they pack tons of protein, and are low in calories. A perfect after workout snack, or any time snack, really!

In addition to the great taste, these black bean chips are perfectly wholesome. In fact, black beans are known to contribute to overall heart health support. They are high in fiber, potassium, and B6, and have no cholesterol. With benefits like these, coupled with great taste and texture, I recommend making a double batch.

  • 1/2 cup black bean flour I grind black beans in my Vitamix
  • 1 tbsp grape seed oil or other cooking oil
  • 2/3 cup water divided
  • 1 tsp sea salt or more to taste


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Combine the salt and bean flour in a large bowl. Then add the oil and mix well.
  • Add only 1/2 cup of water to your bowl and mix well. Continue adding the remaining water slowly until the batter is slightly runny.
  • Pour teaspoon sized amounts of the batter onto your baking sheet. The chips should spread slightly.
  • If desired, you may add "ripples" to your chips before baking, by pressing each one GENTLY with a fork.
  • Bake for 8 minutes, then flip you chips and bake for an additional 6 minutes, watching closely so they don't burn.
  • Cool and enjoy.
