Update June 2020: I picked up lots of zucchini at the farmer’s market the other day (my market has been open by taking advance orders and pick ups during the pandemic) .

I wasn’t sure what to make, then I remembered Zucchini Chips!

We love them and they use up lots of zucchini!

So I made our first batch of the season and they were even better than I remembered.

Hope you love them too!

Original post…

Crispy, salty and delish, we made these as part of dinner tonight an they barely made it to the table, they were so good!

Zucchini Chips are one of my favorite snacks especially in the late summer when zucchini season is is full swing and zucchini is in abundance.

Over the years I have tried making them may different ways.

I’ve tried baking them a long time at low heat, a short time at high heat, a short time at high heat then lowering the oven temp… you get the idea.

They would work great the first time or two and then be a total fail.

Almost by accident I found a method of making them that has worked consistently all summer!

No matter how you make them though, the key is in slicing them super thin (approximately 1/8 inch or 3mm) and slicing them uniformly so they cook evenly.

This is the thickest I cut them.  The thicker you cut them, the longer they have to bake so when I’m in a rush I make an effort to cut them thinner.

First lightly brush the top with olive oil and sprinkle with kosher salt.

Bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees F then raise the oven temperature to 400 degrees and bake for an additional 10-20 minutes, checking at 5 minute intervals and removing any that are burning.

If then are not evenly sliced (almost impossible without a mandolin)… take off any that look crisp and return the rest to the oven and continue checking regularly.

The variance in time is based on how thick they are sliced and the moisture in the zucchini.

Since there is some variability based on the zucchini, if they aren’t getting that final crispiness, you could also raise the temperature yet again to 425 for just 5 minutes.

When they are done, the chips are crisp, flavorful and addictive!  We literally eat them as fast as I make them!

  • 1 zucchini
  • approximately 1 1/4 tbsp olive oil
  • 2-3 generous pinches of Kosher salt


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Slice Zucchini paper thin (approximately 1/8 inch or 3mm) Try to make them as uniform as possible. (Note: I did not use a mandolin but if you have one, it will definitely be easier to slice them more uniformly)
  • Lay zucchini in a single layer, not touching, on prepared baking sheet.
  • Brush zucchini (top side only) with olive oil.
  • Sprinkle with salt
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. (Based on the heat in my oven, I bake them on the top shelf for best results)
  • Raise oven temperature to 400 degrees and let bake an additional 10-20 minutes, checking after 10 minutes and every 5 minutes thereafter to remove any that are crisp. Bake time will vary depending on your oven, the zucchini moisture and actual thickness of the zucchini slices.
  • Let cool and add any additional salt to taste.

    Omg these are SO GOOD!!! As they are coming out the oven I’m eating them! Haha! They aren’t as pretty as yours are in the photo but they sure are delicious!! Do yours get crispy or stay a little soft in the center? I am going to make these all the time now! 🙂

    1. Great question! We don’t have an air fryer so I haven’t tried but let me know if you do…. if you slice them super thin as we did, it should work the same way but just watch temperature and timing— you want to dehydrate them a bit at the lower temperature, then raise it to get crispy…
