Since beginning my new diet after my candida diagnosis, my grocery bills have gotten a little out of hand. When your diet is 70% fresh produce, it gets expensive. So I’ve been trying to do a better job of eating absolutely everything that I buy and repurposing food.

Take corn tortillas, for example. We buy corn tortillas in packs of at least 50 for only about $1.29. Super cheap right? But who can eat 50 corn tortillas before they dry out? Not us. Instead of throwing them away, why not repurpose them into something else? Like tortilla chips! Not just any tortilla chips though, but cinnamon tortilla chips!

I used to make cinnamon tortilla chips all the time, I would just brush the tortillas in butter and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon and bake in the oven until crisp. Extremely delicious, but the problem for me is butter and sugar make me sick. So I’ve held off on making them for months. That is, until now.

I finally figured out a way to make cinnamon tortilla chips that are sugar-free, gluten-free AND dairy-free! All it takes is some corn tortillas, coconut oil, cinnamon and a little bit of liquid stevia.

Seriously. That’s it! These cinnamon tortilla chips are extremely easy to make I guarantee you’ll be making them all the time.  The only hard part will be deciding on what you’re going to dip them in! Fruit salsa, melted chocolate, apple compote; the possibilities are endless!

  1. Thanks for sharing this recipe! I’m sure my kids will love it. Just wondering what brand of corn tortilla did you use? I can’t seem to find a gluten free one. šŸ™‚

    1. Hi Bethany, I use a brand called El Milagro and haven’t had any adverse reactions. I think I’ve heard that Mission is also gluten-free. Hope this helps!

    1. Hi Gloria! They’ve never lasted long enough in my house to know for sure how look they keep. We eat them way too fast! But I would imagine they keep for at least 3-4 days in a sealed ziplock bag at room temperature! If you try it out – be sure to report back. I’ll be trying in the next week as well to test how long they will last šŸ™‚
