If you're missing a little crunch in your life, these low carb tortilla chips are just what you need! Serve with your favorite dip or eat them all on their own.
This recipe was adapted from the Seasoned Tortilla Chips by my friend Lisa MarcAurele from Low Carb Yum, in her brand new cookbook 5 Ingredient Keto that she graciously sent me a copy of. You're going to love this book, read more about it below!
These low carb tortilla chips are absolutely perfect with a Keto friendly Roasted Red Pepper Cauliflower Hummus.

How to Make Keto Seasoned Tortilla Chips
Preheat the oven to 375F.
In a bowl, melt the mozzarella cheese in a microwave oven for 1 minute on high, stir, then heat for another 30 seconds or so until all the cheese is melted.
In a separate bowl, add in the almond flour, oat fiber, onion powder, cumin, smoked paprika and salt.
Whisk together all the dry ingredients until well combined.
Mix in the dry ingredients with the melted mozzarella, while still warm until everything is well blended. You might have to microwave the dough for 20 more seconds if you have trouble combining it.
Roll the dough out between two sheets of parchment paper until it is very thin, ¹⁄8 inch or less thick. It's important that you get them thin enough, so they can crisp up nicely in the oven.
Score into triangles using a pizza cutter or knife.
Then transfer them to a baking sheet pan, lined with parchment paper.
Bake for 10-13 minutes, until just golden brown. Be sure they are baked long enough that they will be completely crunchy.
Cool completely before serving. If not eating right away, store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
Optional: Sprinkle more cumin and smoked paprika over the tops before serving.
Tips for Making the Best Low Carb Tortillas
Be sure to use the prepackaged mozzarella cheese. Typically, I suggest to always grate your own cheese, but when making any variation of a fathead dough, you want the packaged/pre-shredded cheese. The reason being that fresh mozzarella may make the dough too wet.
This recipe is easily adaptable to suit your own taste. You can change the flavor profile by adding your favorite seasonings. Try Keto friendly Ranch seasoning or this homemade Cajun seasoning.
If you don't have oat fiber on hand, you can substitute with flax meal instead.
Can You Make Fathead Dough Ahead?
Because this almond flour tortilla recipe uses mozzarella cheese to help stick the other ingredients together and allows you to roll it thin, the dough can not be cold when you're working with it.
This recipe only takes minutes to put together, but if you have leftover dough and would like to save it to use the next day, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap over night. To use it, you will need warm it in the microwave just until it becomes pliable again.

What is Oat Fiber? Is Oat Fiber Keto?
Oat Fiber is made from grinding the outer husks of oats. How healthy is oat fiber? It's pure insoluble fiber, which doesn't dissolve in water and isn't broken down in the digestive tract, so it has zero net carbs and is perfect for a Keto Diet. It helps give a more traditional texture and that's why I use it so often. Check out all the Keto Oat Fiber Recipes you can make!
What is a Substitute for Oat Fiber?
To get the best results, it's best to use oat fiber if you can. If you're unable to find it, try a combination of psyllium husk powder and coconut flour. Since both are very absorbent, you might have to add more liquid.
