With any recipe that I share with you, there is always a reason behind it. Wonton Crisps first became a ‘thing’ in my home when I was a creating food as a ‘chef’ for my weekly clients. In fact, this recipe was one of the most requested by my A-list clientele.
Perhaps one of the easiest to create recipes I have ever used, Wonton Crisps offer more than just a satisfying crunch. One of my children has diabetic issues and craves crispy treats and I prefer as little processing as possible.
The solution is Wonton Crisps. Sugar and carbs are not an issue in this recipe. A diabetic snack?
Lavishly live food out loud with an easy to make, crispy snack that is perfect for those suffering from high insulin levels, watching their waistline or just wanting something to crunch on. The lavish wonton crisps are the recipe of the day, let’s bake!
I bought egg-roll one time and wonton another by mistake and because I was in a hurry. No difference, it all works, that’s the good news!
There is a brand that is low glycemic, but since one of my children has severe food allergies, the ‘nuts’ in the ingredients nixed that option.
Please note, in order to keep the recipe to low glycemic levels, you may only be consuming one sheet cut into multiple pieces, unless of course, you purchase the low glycemic brand which is far less carby (yes my own word)
Wonton Crisps Recipe
As a chef for my own store/restaurant, I was often asked for alternates to bread as sides. Sometimes the ask was for crispy and other times thin and crunchy. I had one client that was over the top for my homemade Firecracker Shrimp and that’s when it hit me! Wonton Crisps!
These may be the easiest treats that I have ever created and my clients ordered them by the bag. They really are that delicious!

We broke down the nutritional info on the back of our Nasoya products. One sheet is 10 Carbs and >1 Gram of sugar. So, we make one sheet into many pieces to satisfy a craving for crunchy and salty.
The toppings are endless, from garlic to Parmesan, it’s all in the taste you want. We have even sprinkled these with ‘Everything But The Bagel’ topping from Trader Joe’s. I am obsessed and my kids LOVE them! Wonton Crisps are so versatile you are sure to find a combination of spices you will love to top them.
For us, this lavish treat is about the crunch and keeping the insulin slow and steady. While I am not a Dr. we have found this to be a perfect treat for my son.
