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!

1 ounce Parmesan
1 tablespoon finely crushed sea salt flakes

1. Preheat oven to 200˚F.
2. Line zucchini slices onto 2 baking sheets lined with parchment.
3. Grate parmesan evenly over slices and sprinkle with salt.

5. Remove from the oven and allow crisps to cool completely. Serve.

    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.
