Oven Baked BBQ Beet Chips


I mentioned on Friday when I shared my No Bake Carrot Cake Bites that I go through food phases.  Right now, I am currently obsessed with Medjool dates, carrots and beets.  

Recently I shared a Beet Yesterday Pre-Workout Smoothie and while that was made with beet powder, I have also been enjoying fresh beets as well. 

If I had to be honest, beets alone aren’t really my fav.  I find them to be a little too “earthy” tasting all by themselves. Still, I do like them and really enjoy their health benefits.  Not only are they rich in nitrates which are said to boost athletic performance, but they’re also known to help improve blood flow which can lead to a healthier heart.  

Anyway, back to my point.  I like beets but their flavor alone really isn’t my jam.  I do however like them in smoothies and REALLY like them in chip form, especially with the right combination of flavors, like BBQ!

While a lot of people like to enjoy their beets with goat cheese (which, is a pretty fantastic duo), I prefer to slice them up reallllly thin, toss them with a little olive oil and BBQ spice and bake them in the oven.  It might be hard to believe looking at them but I swear beets and BBQ make one of the most fantastic flavor combinations EVER.  

Even my husband who can be a little critical of the things I whip up in the kitchen claimed these were quite fabulous.  In fact, he ate them all while watching the Super Bowl leaving no more for me.
