Microwave Snacks in Minutes: 3 Bold Recipes!

Save Recipe

Hi Bold Bakers

In the past you have seen me work all kinds of magic in the microwave. That’s right, the microwave! From Mug Cakes and Mug Meals to Potato Chips and even Popcorn, the microwave is as big a part of any baker’s kitchen as the oven. I know it sounds crazy but the microwave is not to be overlooked as it allows us to save time and believe it or not make really healthy and wholesome snacks your friends and family will go crazy for!

After creating the perfect golden brown and crispy Potato Chips in the microwave you guys asked for more microwave snacks! Well I’m back with 3 new microwave snacks that a truly irresistible. These 3 snacks are naturally healthy, can be be made start to finish in under 5 minuets and will satisfy all of your sweet and salty cravings!

Im so excited for you to try my Microwave Sweet Potato Chips, Microwave Sweet and Salty Nuts and last but not least my savory Microwave Kale Chips. I often found myself picking up these snacks at the grocery store as they are perfect for mid-day munching or entertaining. Well after thinking about it, I realized all these snacks can be made simply and easily at home and better yet in the microwave!

My Microwave Sweet Potato Chips are the perfect accompaniment to all kinds of summer dips, sandwiches and burgers. That said they are perfect all on their own. This snack is as easy as thinly slicing sweet potato, tossing them in just a touch of oil and popping them in the microwave! I love making these at home. The best part is that using the microwave actually allows you to leave behind all of the messy oil these are usually fried in.

My Microwave Sweet and Spicy Nuts are nothing short of addicting! A great trick I learned while experimenting with these recipes is you can actually toast nuts in the microwave! I give cashews, peanuts and almonds a quick toast then toss them in spices, sticky honey and punchy Sriracha. Within minutes these taste like they have been toasted in the oven. You will not believe the results you get after just a short zap in the old microwave.

Lastly, I’m so excited for you to try my recipe for Microwave Kale Chips! This popular health food snack can be found in all kinds of grocery stores. After you give this recipe a try you will be sold. These kale chips are high in fiber, have almost no fat and are are so easy to make. Simply tear your kale into bite size pieces and toss in bit of olive oil. Three minutes in the microwave transforms this humble green into a snack you will crave!

    Glad to know how to make celery salt. Had a new recipe to try and it called for celery salt. Something I don”t have in my cupboard.

    • Gemma Stafford on November 11, 2018 at 6:08 pm

      Gosh, Wilma.I honestly don’t know how to make that. I’ll have to look it up.

      Gemma.

  2. Paige on October 23, 2018 at 11:38 am

    Hi Gemma,
    This recipe sounds intriguing to me. If I want to make a larger batch, can I bake them in the oven?

    • Gemma Stafford on October 24, 2018 at 3:00 am

      Hi Paige,
      Sure you can, choose 180C/350F, spread them out on your oiled baking sheet, and bake. You may need to stir them through the baking process.
      Thank you for being in touch,
      Gemma 🙂

    Hello, I tried making the kale chips on parchment paper and the paper caught fire. Is there a reason this happened?
    Thanks!

    • Gemma Stafford on June 22, 2018 at 8:51 pm

      It caught on fire in the microwave?? I have no idea why or how that would happen. Maybe your microwave should be on a lower temp.

      Best,
      Gemma.

    Hi Gemma can you please make more smoothie recipes

    • Gemma Stafford on May 31, 2018 at 5:49 am

      I’ll add your request to my list 🙂

  5. Latanya Eyrich on May 26, 2018 at 3:03 pm

    Gemma,
    Can you use this recipe technique to make banana chips? Also, can you use broccoli instead of kale? This is a great snack idea, thanks for sharing it.

    • Gemma Stafford on May 27, 2018 at 2:57 am

      Hi there,
      I am not sure about the broccoli! It is a totally different thing. Cauliflower may work, a little oil and curry powder can be delicious baked, though I have not tried it in the microwave.
      You can experiment a little, finely sliced veg will work best,
      Gemma 🙂

      • Tawnyjane on May 27, 2018 at 6:40 am

        Thank you for replying and for answering my question. I will have to give it a try with the cauliflower and maybe experiment with the broccoli and other vegetables. Thanks again!

        • Gemma Stafford on May 28, 2018 at 8:40 am

          Hi there,
          That is the idea. Parsnip is great too. Really any firm, low water content root veg will work for you,
          Gemma 🙂

  6. Akshaya on January 18, 2018 at 10:50 am

    I made your sweet and spicy nuts and it was the best!!!
    Love the recipe👍👍👌

  7. DessertLover12 on May 24, 2017 at 10:17 am

    Hi Gemma
    I recently found one of my grandmothers old recipes. I want to make it but it calls for celery salt. I don’t have and can’t find it anywhere. Help pls.

    • Gemma Stafford on May 25, 2017 at 3:45 am

      This is an interesting question Natalia, and it is perfectly doable at home.
      If oyu have a pestle and mortar you can make this easily, and freshly for every occasion.
      Take one teaspoon of celery seeds, and one teaspoon of sea salt, grind then together to a fine powder. You can reduce the salt if you wish!
      Gemma 🙂

      • DessertLover12 on May 25, 2017 at 7:13 am

        Thx Gemma
        The soup is going to taste great ?

      • DessertLover12 on May 27, 2017 at 9:23 am

        Would it work with a food processor? Otherwise a mortar and pestle is my next investment

        • Gemma Stafford on May 29, 2017 at 2:30 am

          Hi there,
          A coffee grinder will do this for you, but before I had a pestle and mortar I used a soup spoon in a pottery cereal bowl, it worked!
          Will be interested to hear how you get on with this,
          Gemma 🙂

  8. Jessi on May 23, 2017 at 8:43 am

    Thank you for those 3 great recipes!!!! So easy to make. Have to try making them during the weekend. Thank you so much for sharing:)

    • Gemma Stafford on May 23, 2017 at 8:48 am

      I’m delighted to hear you like them.

      Happy Baking!

  9. Rachel on May 18, 2017 at 10:07 am

    Hi Gemma. I remember you saying that we can’t use a mandolin for the regular potato chips. Will it work for the sweet potato? It’s just so much quicker.

    • Gemma Stafford on May 19, 2017 at 10:35 pm

      Hi Rachel,

      you can use a mandolin if you wish for the sweet potatoes 🙂

      Let mw know how they turn out.

      • Rachel Renzo on February 22, 2018 at 11:35 pm

        Hi Gemma,
        the mandolin worked great for the sweet potatoes. The reason I was asking is because my 14 year old loves using it to help me slice and she said I don’t think I can get the thin enough with a knife. 🙂

        • Gemma Stafford on February 23, 2018 at 1:59 pm

          Hi Rachel,
          Yes, and this is a great appliance, but they are not all equal!
          Great that your 14 year old is baking with you, how lovely. Tell her I said ‘mind your fingers, use the guard’ it is super, but scary!
          Thank you for sharing this with us,
          Gemma 🙂
