Parmesan_Zucchini_Crisps

I have a snacking problem. I will be the first to admit that. Snacking is my favorite, and specifically I love crunchy things, like crackers, or chips. It’s a problem. I have zero self control. I don’t really buy crackers and chips because I can literally eat them in one sitting, and then I just feel terrible mentally and physically, yet I will do it again and again. Most of the time I try to just not be an idiot and snack terribly all the time, but there are times when I just need to, to get through some work that I don’t want to do. That is where these Parmesan Zucchini Crisps come in. I don’t want to sit here and tell you think is the new healthy snack or whatever, but I do want to tell you that yes, these are better for you than an entire thing of goldfish, or a line of ritz crackers. These are tasty too, it really doesn’t seem like you’re sitting down to eat a pile of zucchini. This has become my new go to snack / stress eating item. Super easy to make, and they keep really well. Hope you guys enjoy!

    These look so delish! I can’t believe I’ve never made zucchini ships before, what’s wrong with me! These need to happen soon!

    Ooo, I love making parmesan zucchini as a side dish, never thought of doing chips! I have the same problem as you, I snack constantly if there is anything to snack on in the house!

    I can’t wait to try these! I expected there would be oil in the recipe and was surprised to see that there isn’t. Also, I might try to use some spices to experiment with flavor :-) Thanks for sharing!

    This looks awesome! How long would they keep for in storage? (Granted I don’t eat them all in one sitting)

    I saw these on your Instagram while at work and now I’m so so so sad that I’m at work and can’t make these immediately. I have a serious snacking habit that I need to try to kick so I’m trying to find alternatives to my usual culprits (chips etc).

    I was wondering how long they keep and how you would store them?

    Totally trying these! I’ve been slamming zucchini lately since I discovered zucchini noodles are a surprisingly decent substitution for a bowl of pasta, so these are now on my to do list.

    When I was still living in Italy my mamma used to cook to me a similar snack, I know how delicious that is, she used to add aubergine as well. In the end I was so greedy that I would eat way too many of those and by dinner time I was too full to eat anything else. Thanks for bringing back some nice memories with this post.
