Crispy Baked Zucchini Chips. A healthy paleo-friendly snack recipe that is loaded with flavor and crunch.


  • 4 large zucchini, evenly sliced 1/8 inch thick
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt
  • ½ teaspoon Hot Smoked Paprika (optional)
  • ½ teaspoon Cumin (optional)


  1. Slice the zucchini. (Using a mandolin helps keep the slices consistent.) Lay the zucchini slices on paper towels in a single layer. Cover with more paper towels and set a baking sheet on top of the zucchini slices. Press down on the baking sheet, applying slight pressure, to help squeeze out some of the moisture.
  2. Preheat the oven to 235 degrees F. (Preheat two ovens if you have them to fit more in at once.) Line several baking sheets with parchment paper. Brush the parchment paper lightly with olive oil. Lay the zucchini slices in a single layer on the parchment paper. Fit as many on each baking sheet as possible. Then lightly brush the top of the zuchini with olive oil. Sprinkle the zucchini slices with salt. You can also sprinkle with a little cumin and smoked paprika for extra flavor.
  3. Bake for 1 1/2 – 2 hours until crisp and golden. If some zucchini chips are still a little flimsy or damp, remove the crisp chips and place the damp chips back in the oven for a few more minutes. Allow the zucchini chips to cool on the paper towels to absorb any extra oil. Store in an air-tight container.

      Right on Julie. When we grow our zucchini our kid’s fight them every time. This is a great alternative the kids are going to woof these chips down.

    These look DELICIOUS and just might possibly be something that my oh-so-picky stepkids might actually like! (and that’s always a huge victory in my book!)

    Have you ever tried to spray with olive oil cooking spray They look really good!

    • Sommerposted March 5, 2015 at 8:06 am Reply

      Hi Karen! Good idea, but just be sure to check that there are no “additives” in the cooking spray. That may effect the browning.

    Looking forward to trying these! I am in the market for a good mandoline. What brand is in the video? Do you like it?
    Thanks for a great recipe!

    Any reason why a  Silpat baking sheet wouldn’t work in place of the parchment paper?

    • Sommerposted September 13, 2015 at 5:19 pm Reply

      Hi Allison, it would work just fine!
