Vegan Oven Baked Zucchini Chips

Oven-Baked-Zucchini-Chips

These Vegan Oven Baked Zucchini Chips are a great alternative to chips or other unhealthy, processed snacks and are not only vegan but gluten-free, grain-free and flourless too.

You could make them in the shape of chips as shown, or even as zucchini fries by cutting them into long strips instead.

They really addictive and have a spicy, cheesy taste to them.

If  you’d rather another zucchini chip alternative, try my Lemon Dill Zucchini Chips or if you’d rather another oven baked snack, try my Healthy Oven Baked Green Tomato recipe.

And, if you’d like a healthy dip to go with them, pair it up with my Raw Cashew Sauce or Healthy Garlic Cashew Dip.

Tip #1:  I wasn’t able to bake mine in the oven as the original instructions stated so I just put mine on a baking sheet directly in the oven.  You need to keep an eye on them because they will burn and stick to the bottom of the pan if you leave them in too long.  Just watch them closely as every oven is different.

Tip #2:  These are best served hot, straight from the oven and will get soft once they cool off.

Tip #3:  I sliced the zucchini ~with~ the skin on but you can remove it if you prefer.

Tip #4:  I like mine extra spicy so I add a little extra cayenne to my mixture but just adjust the amount to your preference.

Tip #4:  Although I don’t do this every single time I make these, you can grind the large flake nutritional yeast in a coffee grinder to give it a fine “Parmesan Cheese” texture if you prefer.  Sometimes I just use the large flake and skip this step.

    Hi there,

    I’d love to try this Zucchini Chips recipe. I noticed it called for bread crumbs. I am just starting with a Gluten Free diet. Do you know how I could do this gluten free?

    Thanks for any help,
    Annmarie

      Hi Annmarie! I actually was just getting ready to revise/update this recipe because in the time since I posted this recipe, I have also been trying to do gluten-free.

      I just posted a recipe for Healthy Oven Baked Green Tomatoes yesterday using almond flour and homemade almond milk instead of breadcrumbs and coconut oil.

      I also have some fresh zucchini, so today I will try it with the gluten-free ingredients to make sure it works. I’ll update the post and recipe today if it comes out good.

      And that’s what I’ll be using going forward because it was really good with the green tomatoes.

      Thanks for the question and hopefully I’ll have some good news soon ;)

        Hi Annmarie! Ok, I re-made them with the almond milk/almond flour combo and they were great!

        I just updated the recipe and photos and they are now vegan, gluten-free, grain-free and flourless.

        I hope you enjoy them if you decide to make them ;)
