These Baked Zucchini Chips are a terrifically healthy snack. The zucchini is deliciously crispy, but it's the seasonings that take this recipe to the next level. Every bite will be amazing. It'll be hard to stop snacking on these zucchini chips. Luckily this is a healthy snack, so you won't feel guilty for eating more than your share. 

The best news is that you only need a few ingredients to make these baked chips. This means that you can easily make these zucchini chips even when you're busy doing a hundred other things. You simply pop them in the oven and wait for the chips to crisp up. It seriously can't get any easier than that!

Cooking Time1 hr 30 min


  • 2 medium zucchini
  • dry herbs and/or seasonings as desired (see notes)


  1. Preheat oven to 225 degrees F.

  2. Line two baking sheets with foil and spray with cooking spray.

  3. Slice zucchini very thinly into circles. They should be about the size and width of a quarter. Lay them on the baking sheet and spray with more cooking spray to coat all surfaces. Sprinkle VERY LIGHTLY with spices of your choice.

  4. Bake for 45 minutes, then rearrange baking sheet in the oven and bake another 45 minutes. If the chips are not crispy enough, continue to bake. Check frequently until all of the moisture has evaporated and the chips just begin to brown.


Make a mixture of salt and Italian dry spices, or use a premixed mixture you already have in your cupboard. You will only need a little more than 1/2 teaspoon total. We mixed ½ teaspoon salt with ¼ teaspoon Mexican spices with chile for some, and ½ teaspoon salt with ¼ teaspoon Italian spices for others. We used these amounts for 2 medium zucchinis. 

One medium zucchini, cut very thinly, should yield about 40 thin slices.

Zucchini Health Benefits

It’s no secret that zucchini is a nutritious vegetable, but let’s take a deeper look at all the benefits it has for your body:

1. Great source of fiber. Zucchini is chock-full of manganese and vitamin C making it the best source of fiber to promote a long and healthy lifestyle.
2. Stay disease-free. Studies have shown that fibrous zucchini improves your immune system and helps prevent all kinds of diseases including cancer.
3. Prevents heart disease. Filled with potassium, zucchini helps reduce blood pressure and keep blood flow moving at a normal rate.
4. Easy on the eyes. Just like cucumbers, zucchini helps reduce eyelid puffiness and swelling. The vitamin A nutrients also help cell development within the eyes themselves.
5. Great food substitution. While we all wish we could eat pasta 24/7, it’s not ideal for the body, but the good news is zucchini can be found in noodle form and are a great substitute for that hearty plate of spaghetti.

These look amazing - and so much healthier than chips! Yummm!

Oh my gosh, this is such a good idea! I wonder if I can trick my brothers into trying some...

I've never tried zucchini chips before, so I'd really like to try this recipe. They look tasty!

I like celery when fried with egg-milk and flour mixture!

These zucchini chips were far too salty for my taste, so I will try to adjust the seasonings next time.

The flavor was perfect! I would definitely make these healthy zucchini chips again. The best news is that they're SO easy to make.
