INGREDIENTS FOR CRISPY VEGETABLE CHIPS

  • Cooking oil spray: Simple avocado oil will do the trick with these baked zucchini chips. You can find avocado cooking spray right next to the regular type of cooking oils. You can also use coconut spray oil.
  • Fresh zucchini: Two medium zucchini are sliced into ¼ slices to create the most perfectly crispy chips. If you grow your own zucchini, then this recipe is perfect for using what you have left in the garden.
  • Seasoning: A combination of robust garlic powder, leafy oregano, sea salt, and black pepper are used as the seasonings for these chips and create the best delicious flavors.
  • Parmesan cheese: Freshly grated parmesan cheese is a great substitute for breading or breadcrumbs to make sure this recipe stays low carb and gluten-free. I highly recommend using fresh parmesan cheese for optimal flavors.

HOW TO MAKE KETO BAKED ZUCCHINI CHIPS WITH PARMESAN

  • Preheat the oven: First, be sure to fully preheat the oven to make sure the chips come out crispy enough. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit, then prepare two sheet pans with oil spray. You can also use parchment paper in place of the oil spray.
  • Season the zucchini with flavor: Next, divide the prepared sliced zucchini evenly among the baking sheets and sprinkle the slices with garlic powder, oregano, salt, and pepper. Toss the zucchini chips together with the oil and seasonings to make sure everything is fully covered. Avoid overlapping the chips or they will not be crispy.
  • Bake: Finally, lightly spray the zucchini with cooking oil and top with grated parmesan cheese. Bake the zucchini chips in the oven for fifteen to seventeen minutes until lightly golden and crispy. Enjoy with your favorite sauces and dips!

TIPS

  • Be sure to evenly slice the zucchini chips so you have even and balanced chips.
  • Avoid overlapping the zucchini slices on the baking sheets so they do not get soggy and moist.
  • Store any leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature.
  • Instead of baking your chips in the oven, you can try air fryer zucchini chips.
  • If you are not keto or gluten-free, then you can enjoy zucchini chips with breading or panko crumbs. Just be sure to create an egg wash for the zucchini slices!
  • For vegan zucchini chips, use vegan parmesan cheese or skip it altogether.
