Easy Zucchini, Kale and Chard Chips

Love those crispy potato chips but don’t want all of that grease to bog you down and exhaust you? Give other veggies a try by baking your own healthy and crave-able zucchini, chard and kale chips!

Zucchini Chips


  • 1 large zucchini
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • Kosher salt


  1. Preheat oven to 225 degrees. Line two large baking sheets with silicon baking mats or parchment paper
  2. Slice your zucchini into thin slices
  3. Press slices between paper towels to remove excess moisture
  4. Arrange zucchini slices in single layers on baking sheets
  5. Brush slices with olive oil
  6. Sprinkle (just a little!) salt throughout the baking sheet (too much salt will cause the slices to shrink)
  7. Bake for 2+ hours until they start to brown and aren’t soggy and are crisp.
