Homemade Oven-Baked Beet Chips

Homemade oven-baked beet chips Crunchy… Yes! Delicious… Yes!  Easy… Yes! Its a win-win-WIN!  Beets have not always been my favorite.  As a kid, I remember ‘trying’ canned beets at Thanksgiving, and from that point on I knew that “I did not like beets.”  However, now I know, its all about the preparation, and I’m loving my homemade oven-baked beet chips, and I hope you do too!

Beets are one of the greatest healing foods.  I have struggled with severe anemia over that past year (due to some PCOS complications), and have added beets regularly to my diet and have learned over the last few years to really love them!  They are rich in iron and known for their blood building capabilities.  Not only that, they are packed with essential minerals, phytochemicals (aka cancer fighting!), and have special anti-inflammatory/anti-aging properties.  These include…

  • Wrinkles
  • Susceptibility to infections
  • Cancer
  • Arthritis
  • Bronchitis
  • Chronic pain
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Osteoporosis
  • Heart disease
  • Candidiasis

If you suffer from any of the above or want to prevent, definitely start including beets and their beautiful greens (add the greens to your green smoothies or juices!) into your diet!  My favorite ways to eat beets are roasted (perfect for yummy salads!), juiced, or baked!  These are definitely a family favorite!

I used a spriralizer, but a mandolin slicer is even better!  If using a mandolin slicer, set the smallest setting.
