How to Make a Low Calorie Baked Potato

It’s so easy to make low calorie baked potatoes in the oven. With the help of olive oil spray, you can get the perfect crispy skin without adding loads of calories and fat.

The olive oil spray lets out just a light list of oil, instead of a heavy drizzle. And if you really must have butter, add 1/4 teaspoon to the toppings instead. You’ll get all the flavor without add the fat and calories.

Low Calorie Baked Potato Toppings

Now that you know how to make the perfect baked potato, let’s discuss healthy potato bar toppings.

You can make loaded baked potatoes in a healthy new way. I’ve swapped out sour cream for metabolism boosting Greek Yogurt (it tastes exactly the same!) and omitted the butter. Because it’s always better to load up your baked potato with zero calorie, or low calorie toppings so you won’t miss the butter.

These low calorie baked potato toppings are packed with flavor and nutrition.

Greek Yogurt tastes just like sour cream, but it boosts metabolism and is a fraction of the calories. And toppings like chives, green onions, hot sauce and jalapeños add virtually no calories to your healthy baked potatoes.

Low Calorie Baked Potato Toppings:

  • Greek Yogurt (2 tablespoons adds 10 calories)
  • Chives (1 tablespoon adds 1 calorie)
  • Green onions (1 tablespoon adds 1 calorie)
  • Cooked and crumbled turkey bacon
  • Sharp cheddar cheese (1/8 cup adds 46 calories)
  • Salsa or hot sauce (1 tablespoon adds 4 calories)
  • Jalapeños (3 slices adds 1 calorie)
  • Cooked chicken (1/4 cup adds 55 calories)
  • Cooked Broccoli (1/4 cup adds 32 calories)
  • Low Calorie Chili (1/2 cup adds 41 calories)

All of these low calorie potato bar toppings will help you stay on diet. You will see I included cheese. But I recommend sharp cheese, the flavor is stronger so you won’t need as much!

I recommend making this recipe with russet potatoes, they are the best potato for baking. But you can make any potato with the directions below.
