Low carb friendly snacks are really starting to take off. I’ve seen more flax crackers, low carb bars and Parmesan chips entering the market than I ever thought possible! The only downside, you end up paying dearly for these specialty products with your wallet. I was at Wegman’s the other day and they had these amazing Parmesan crisps and I said, you know what, I can make those! So I whipped out my trusty Whoopie Pie Pan and got to experimenting!
The trick was to use two different types of Parmesan cheese. The shaved cheese on the right melted really well but didn’t have the coverage. The grated cheese served as a nice base and filler. Also, its essential to cook these in some sort of cavity pan like a Whoopie Pie Pan so the cheese is contained during its melting.
Start by laying down a layer of grated cheese, then the shreds, then top with more grated cheese.
They’re done when the sides brown up and the cheese has fully melted and become crisp.
I used them as vessels for even more cheese! They turned out really well and can be whipped up very quickly before a party or as a quick snack.

|Wilton Whoopie Pie Pan
Not to be out done, the Whoopie Pie Pan is the bastard cousin of the muffin top pan. Instead of 6 buns, it packs 12 into the same space. The edges are more round than the muffin top pan and so it creates a smaller, more cookie like shape. Its good for making tapas sized buns or for holding together keto cookies.
Non-slip Cutting Board
Let’s face it, keto involves a lot of prep. You’ve got to slice all those vegetables, cut up all that meat and not just any old board will do. Make sure to grab yourself a nice non-slip one for the kitchen!
