Home-Baked Honey Parsnip Crisps


I love the parsnip crisps from M&S. I could munch and munch and munch on them. I do try not to buy them very often, but sometimes I just can't resist.


I found some late season British parsnips and decided to make my own crisps.

They are even better than the bought crisps, but there is a very big downside. With the shop bought crisps, I can have one little bag and when they are finished they are finished, but when you have a bag of parsnips, you can just peel another parsnip and enjoy another bowl of crisps, then another, and another .................

I am entering my Home-Baked Honey Parsnip Crisps into this month's Family Friendly Fridays hosted by Ren over at Fabulicious Food.

These crisps are a great snack for children. The sweetness comes from honey and there is no oil in the recipes, just simply baked vegetable crisps.

  1. Except that parsnips don't have all that much in the way of dietary support - I guess they have good fiber, but they're starchy like tatties - they really are not a bad snack at all. Sounds yummy. I should try this next with sweet potatoes and a bit of cayenne pepper... mmm.

  8. Oh YUM! These look incredibly good. Love the fact that they are baked - I do lie vegetable crisps but they are a bit greasy sometimes. Definitely one for the bank holiday weekend at ours : ) Thank you!

    1. So much healthier baked and they are lovely and crisp. I found the thicker ones needed an extra couple of minutes though.

  11. They sound wonderful, but like you, if I made them I would have to eat the whole lot myself as I love parsnips but the rest of the family hate them!
