Over the last year or so I have been working really hard to develop better eating habits. Making healthier choices and going 99% gluten free (occasionally I mess up thus the 1% margin of error 😉 ) The one area I struggle with the most, is snacking. Mindless snacking is my weakness! I’ve been taking some time on the weekends to make healthy options that help make healthy snacking much easier! And these Baked Lemon Pepper Zucchini Chips are the perfect solution!
These Baked Lemon Pepper Zucchini Chips are tasty, easy and super delicious! They’re a great low carb, gluten free and with one substitution, they can be paleo approved too!
Baked Lemon Pepper Zucchini Chips Ingredients
1 zucchini, large
3 tbsp lemon pepper seasoning
½ c vegetable oil
Baked Lemon Pepper Zucchini Chips Directions
1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees
2. Using a mandolin or a sharp knife, slice the zucchini into medallions approximately 1/8” thick
3. Brush both sides lightly with vegetable oil
4. Sprinkle lightly with the seasoning. Note: Careful not to over season any chips. As they shrink and crisp up, the seasoning becomes more intense so the lesson here is “less is more”.
5. Bake in the oven for approximately 2 – 2.5 hours, turning over half way through baking. Watch the chips at the 2 hour mark and do not allow them to over dry or go too dark.
6. Let them cool
7. Store in an airtight container and eat within 2 – 3 days.
These Zucchini Chips have easily become a favorite for me! And while they’re not the quickest-to-make healthy snack recipe I’ve ever made or shared, they are definitely one of the easiest and tastiest! Not to mention that these are the perfect base for just about any kind of meat or cheese or dip!
Are you excited yet? Cause I am… obviously! I’ve already almost flown through the first batch of these tasty Baked Lemon Pepper Zucchini Chips and I’ll be making some more this week!

I am OBSESSED with zucchini chips. I’ve made them before with cheese, but I have never made them like this before. I will have to try them with lemon pepper. YUM! A mandolin is so important to make these perfectly.

Oh my goodness! These look so tasty. Mindless snacking is one of my biggest issues as well and I love something crispy, so I am definitely going to try these!
I’m always looking for ways to use of zucchini. When my garden is producing, we have zucchini coming out of our ears. These look delicious — I love the addition of lemon pepper and that they’re not fried!

What a delicious snack! When I was a kid my mom would let us put lemon pepper on our green beans to get us to eat them- she made it out like it was a special treat and now I love them and lemon pepper!

This is great! I love healthy snacks and have been wanting a recipe for zucchini chips! Glad I found your post through the link party:)
I have so many zucchinis sitting on my counter right now…I think I may use one or two this weekend to make chips! A lot healthier than all of the potato chips I’ve been snacking on lately! Happy Fiesta Friday!
Wonderful idea! They look delicious. Thank you for bringing them to FF.
