The Best Keto Snack Ranch Cheddar Crisps

So you’re on a keto / low carb diet – you miss your Ranch Doritos? Same. we need our snacks and I’m here to help. These low carb cheese crisps are not exactly the same as Doritos, but you DO get that ranch flavor. These crisps are made the way my other cheese crisps are made – with cheese and seasoning. That’s it. So simple.

I’ve used a Hidden Valley Ranch powdered seasoning for this recipe, but you can make your own. If you do make your own, you don’t really need the buttermilk. It adds some flavor, but I think is optional.

You start with your favorite cheese. I picked cheddar. Or did cheddar pick me? If you choose a saltier cheese (like cheddar), I really recommend making your own ranch seasoning so you don’t have all that salt. Or reduce the amount of seasoning to taste. If not it’s totally saltyville.

You’ll Need:

  • 1/2 Tbs Ranch Dressing Seasoning
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Mix the pre-shredded cheese and seasoning.
  2. Drop a small amount of the cheese mixture into muffin pan. We like our silicone one placed on a sheet pan.
  3. Bake 400 degrees F for 6 minutes or so until brown / crispy. Be careful not to burn.
  4. Store in fridge or airtight container.
