Zucchini Chips

Zucchini Chips
Here is a simple super tasty recipe for ya. I just made these the other day and I honestly should have made a lot more. These things are so good, they do not last long in our house!  It takes a while to make these, so make sure you have a few hours to spare. I tried to do the quick method but my chips burned. Remember what they say, slow and steady wins the race!
However, you will need a mandoline for this. I know, I know, that scary looking thing with a blade?! Yes, get one. But be careful. They come with a hand guard for a reason so USE IT! They usually come with at least three settings, you want the thinnest setting for these zucchini chips.

Zucchini Chips

A nice, healthy, tasty snack for everyone to enjoy!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 2 hours
Total Time 2 hours 5 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 Zucchini Large
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil *or grapeseed oil*
  • 1 dash Salt/Pepper to taste
  • 1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 235° F and get some baking sheets ready lined with parchment paper.

    Wash and slice your zucchini *careful with that mandoline*.  Place your slices on some folded up paper towels and pat them down.  I like to give them a nice push down, to get as much of the liquid out as you can. 


  2. Mix your pepper and oil together and lightly brush the chips with it. Don't use too much or your chips will be soggy. Don't place them overlapping at all. They also do shrink down a little bit once they get cooking, so don't be disappointed when that happens, it's supposed to happen.


  3. Place them in the oven and let them go for 1 and 1/2 to 2 hours. I would start to check at about an hour and a half. The goal is to get them golden brown. They do burn quickly, so if they are getting close to this color I would stand by and just wait. Take them out when they have reached the desired color and let them rest a few minutes. (Don't forget to turn that oven off)

  4. They can keep up to three days in an airtight container, however, our chips didn't last that long. 

Dog Approved!
