Butternut squash is a type of winter squash that contains 2-3 times more carbs than summer squash. I wouldn't recommend it for a very low-carb diet, but you can have it as long as you stay within your net carbs limit. Keep in mind that chips and crisps are not meant to replace a proper meal.

I admit it took me a few attempts to fine-tune this recipe. The chips were either burnt or rubbery, but in the end, I managed to find a way to make them nice and crispy: I used an oven chip tray which worked perfectly!

Apart from baking the chips in the oven, you can also deep-fry them in coconut oil or ghee. I personally prefer the oven method, as I don't like wasting coconut oil.

Ingredients (makes 8 servings)


  1. Preheat the oven to 120 °C/ 250 °F (fan assisted), or 140 °C/ 285 °F (conventional). Peel the butternut squash and slice thinly on a mandolin. If you are using a knife, make sure the slices are no more than 1/8 inch (1/4 cm) thin. Place in a bowl. Pumpkin Pie Spiced Butternut Chips
  2. In a small bowl, mix melted coconut oil, gingerbread spice mix and stevia. Butternut squash is naturally sweet and you may not need to use any sweetener. Pumpkin Pie Spiced Butternut Chips
  3. Pour the oil mixture over the butternut squash and mix well to allow it everywhere.

  4. Arrange the slices close to each other on a baking tray lined with parchment paper or a rack or an oven chip tray (you will need at least 2 of them).

  5. Place in the oven and cook for about 1.5 hour or until crispy (the exact time depends on how thick the chips are). Half way through, you can spray them with a bit of coconut oil to help them crisp up.

  6. Although the chips shouldn't burn at low temperature, you should keep an eye on them. When done, let them cool down and store in an air-tight container for up to a week.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

If you haven't darkened your oil or oxidized it, you can run frying oil through paper coffee filters to reuse it. Just let it cool completely first. And pre-used oil usually browns fried foods better, especially if you were frying something with starches.
And if you can get safflower or sunflower oil, it's cheaper and still healthy.

Hi Dusky, the oil is dark because I added cinnamon in it - I'm not sure you were referring to that. I would advice against these safflower or sunflower oils as they are processed (the heat stable ones) and inflammatory: Complete Guide to Fats & Oils on a Low-Carb Ketogenic Diet
