Baked Zucchini Chips

20140119-160559.jpgLooking for a healthy snack? These baked zucchini chips are crispy, flavorful and will satisfy cravings for salty, crunchy potato chips. I really want to like vegetables, but have a hard time finding ones I like and how to prepare them. A little breading and seasoning go a long way because I LOVED these! (I know they obviously aren’t as healthy as the plain vegetable, but it’s a start, right?) They are simple to make, with only 10 minutes prep time and few ingredients. 20140119-160629.jpg

Ingredients

  • 2 zucchini, sliced (1/4-inch thick)
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp. crushed red peppers
  • 1/4 cup milk

How to:

  1. Preheat oven to 425F. Line baking sheet with foil and lightly spray with canola oil.
  2. Whisk together cheese, bread crumbs, salt, garlic powder and crushed red pepper in shallow bowl or plate. Pour milk into a separate bowl.
  3. Dip zucchini slices in milk then into bread crumb mixture until lightly coated. Place on prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes, until browned and crisp. Serve warm. I dipped them in light ranch dressing.

  1. These sound so good and are definitely a healthier choice than processed potato chips! If you’re looking for a healthy yet still tasty recipe I’d suggest making carrot fries! Just cut a few baby carrots in half or a few larger carrots into long wedges. Drizzle them with a bit if oil (I suggest olive oil) and season with a pinch of sea salt. Then pop them in the oven at about 400 degrees F for about 20 minutes! It’s so easy and tastes just as good as (if not better than) French fries!
