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 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, BUT… it’s not an item you can just sit down and gorge on either.
A diabetic snack?
Well, it’s more favorable than most crispy items my child could choose from and it’s not got sugar in it like a bunch of potato chips.
Check each label, but we found a brand without high fructose syrup, without corn syrup, and that has zero artificial colors or flavors.
After that it’s what I put on it, that changes it to flavorful and crispy.
In the end, this is how my child gets a crunchy snack, and is satisfied with the flavor, while not over-indulging.
As with any recipe, or food in question, ask your doctor, ours approved this snack as an alternative to potato chips.
The lavish wonton crisps are the recipe of the day, let’s bake!

There are several brands of eggroll wrappers and wonton wrappers, choose the brand you like best.
The products are interchangeable for this recipe and will cook up the same.
However, do remember if you are going for the Diabetic side of this, then you will want to seek out a wonton wrapper as natural as possible, and with zero sugars in it, and low carbs.
Also, I’m ‘eh’ on the egg roll wraps, as I once might have liked them better before, there is .3 on the sugar, so, probably NO.
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!
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 Did Our Own Analysis with Our Dr.
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.
Nut-free, seafood free, and lower on the scale of carbs as well as sugar and it’s NOT potato chips junk!
