  • 56 grams Pepperoni


Ingredient Notes: We used 3-inch diameter pepperoni slices that are ¼-ounce each. Changing the size and thickness of the pepperoni will change the optimal cooking time.
  1. Preheat your air fryer to 390°F for at least 3 minutes.
  2. Create a single layer with only minimal overlap of pepperoni on the fryer plate. Cover with the dehydrator rack to help keep the pepperoni in place. Fry for 3 minutes 30 seconds.
  3. Remove pepperoni slices from the air fryer and allow to cool on a paper towel lined plate for at least 1 minute.  Repeat steps 2 and 3 if needed to fry all the pepperoni slices.
  4. These chips can be eaten as is, or dipped in guacamole for a delicious snack!

Cooking Tip

How we calculate the Net Atkins Count™

In the Atkins Nutritional Approach®, the Net Atkins Count™ is calculated by subtracting the number of grams of fiber and polyols (such as glycerin and sugar alcohols) from the total grams of carbohydrates in whole foods. This reflects the idea that fiber and polyols minimally impacts blood sugar levels at the doses present in the products.
