The answer, perhaps not surprisingly, is that it depends entirely on how the potato chips are made. The average 11 potato chip serving size for most brands contains 10 grams of fat, 180mg of sodium, and a whopping 150 calories. While it may seem easier to simply grab a bag of chips to snack on from your nearest grocery store, you can make delicious (and far healthier!) chips at home in under half an hour.
You need 12 wonton wrappers, ¼ to ½ teaspoon of coarsely ground black pepper, and ¼ teaspoon of coarse salt for this quick and easy recipe. Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. While it's heating, take out a large baking sheet and cover it with a nonstick cooking spray. Then take your wonton wrappers and cut them in half diagonally to create 24 triangles. Spread these out on the baking sheet, being careful not to allow any of them to overlap.
Before putting the baking sheet in the oven, grab your nonstick cooking spray again to lightly coat the tops of the triangles. Then sprinkle them all evenly with salt and pepper—but be careful not to use too much salt!
Put your baking sheet in the oven for eight minutes, or until the triangles have become a nice golden brown. Allow the chips to cool completely before eating them. If you divide them up into three separate plastic bags, then you can have three delicious snacks containing only 94 calories.
While this is a low fat recipe makeover when compared to most potato chips, calling it healthy may still be a stretch. If you have that potato chip craving, however, then satisfying it with this quick and easy recipe is far better for you than grabbing your average greasy, fried bag of store bought chips.
