Let kids help with the simple steps in bold!


  • 2 medium beets, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. (If you do not have parchment, lightly grease the cookie sheet with a bit more oil.)

2. Slice beets as thinly as possible.

3. Place beets in a large bowl, then toss with olive oil and salt and pepper until coated.

Tip: Add other spices of your choice to the bowl to make flavored chips (try Cajun seasoning, taco seasoning, lemon pepper and other blends).

4. Arrange beets in a single layer on the baking sheet.

5. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until crisp. Keep a close eye so they do not burn.
