Forget poker, with this recipe the only chips you’ll need are that of zucchini parmesan. With a low carb crunch in every bite, this snack makes going for seconds harmless.

Whether it be those late night snack cravings or mid afternoon hunger Zucchini Parmesan Chips are sure to satiate you in a guiltless manner. These keto crisps are low carb and only require three ingredients. It’s a thoughtless recipe only requiring zucchini, parmesan, and the optional garlic salt. The three ingredients mesh for a spark of flavor. The longer you leave these tasty delights in the oven the crispier they get, that way they can be made to your liking. Not only do these chips leave your taste buds rejoicing but you’ll find yourself pleasantly full. Where as oftentimes we indulge on a bag of chips and feel a sense of remorse or grossly stuffed, these chips leave you feeling healthier than you were before after consuming them.

Background:

Accustomed to reaching for a bag of Lays, Cheetos, or Doritos? Zucchini Parmesan Chips will replace your favorite snack time food without even trying. The crispy yet refreshing snack is both keto and vegetarian friendly. While eating no carb to low carb can leave you wanting a snack in between meals this one will help you stay on track to your healthy eating goal. These chips have a crunchy layer on top whilst the bottom half retains the zucchini flavor that makes this recipe so delicious. As the cheese browns the parmesan taste becomes more pronounced. Combined with garlic salt, or any other seasoning of your choice, you have a masterpiece at your fingertips.

This is an easy to make, mess-free recipe. With just three simple ingredients you’ll have a munch and crunch snack in no time. When I first started doing keto, this was the first snack recipe I tried and it quickly became the only one I consumed. Whether I’m having a no-carb day or have treated myself to a whole pizza, these chips always find themselves making their way into my day. Unlike most foods that are consumed with such frequency, this is a snack that I have never found myself getting bored of. The garlic salt is interchangeable for other staple seasonings like Trader Joe’s everything bagel sesame seasoning blend or just regular salt. Part of what makes this recipe so enjoyable is that it allows you to embody a chef. You can change the ingredients without butchering the original essence or without compromising the success of the results.

Zucchini Parmesan Chips Ingredients :

First, let’s chat ingredients…

  • Zucchini: One zucchini makes enough chips for a serving size of one person. 
  • Parmesan Cheese: Parmesan Cheese is the typical cheese that I use. However, you can substitute it with alternatives like four-cheese Mexican blends or any other personal preferences.
  • Garlic Salt: I use Trader Joe’s garlic salt, however, any other seasoning can be used or just regular salt can be added. This is, of course, optional, it just adds more flavor.

How To Make Zucchini Parmesan Chips:

  • Prep the Zucchini. Wash off the zucchini then cut off each end. After you have cut off each end then proceed to slice them. The thickness of the slices is based on personal preference. The thinner they are the quicker they cook.
  • Prep Oven & Baking Sheet. Preheat the oven to 350. Then place aluminum foil on a baking sheet and spray PAM on it so that your zucchini chips don’t stick.
  • Further Baking Sheet Prep. Then place your sliced zucchini on the baking sheet. They can be spaced a fingers width away from each other. 
  • Add Toppings. Dip a spoon into the parmesan cheese and sprinkle it on top of each zucchini slice. I find that a little less than a spoonful of cheese is enough for each slice. Then take your seasoning of choice and sprinkle it over the parmesan covered zucchini. I twist the garlic salt grinder twice over each zucchini chip.
  • Place in Oven. Once I am done adding the cheese and seasoning, I place the baking sheet in the oven for around 25-35 minutes. I find that they are done after 25 minutes of cooking, however, the longer you leave them the crisper they get so it is all up to personal preference. Also, the longer they cook the more dehydrated the zucchini gets.  

NOTES:

The garlic salt can be substituted for any seasoning preference. You can also extend the cooking time for even crunchier chips.
