10 Recipes for Healthy Veggie Chips

zucchini chips

If you love your salty snacks at night, there are very few choices that may fit your caloric budget. Last night I was feeling adventurous. I looked in the refrigerator and took a mental note of what I had on hand. I was craving chips. Since I had zucchini, I googled “zucchini chips” and saw a few sites to give me some ideas. I didn’t measure anything or even read the full recipes. My thought was – how could you really go wrong?! And I was right!

I sliced zucchini up into very thin pieces. Sprayed pam on the pan and on the zucchini. Then I sprinkled garlic, sea salt, cracked pepper and parmesan cheese on top, baked on 425 for 20 minutes and BAM! I had my yummy loc cal snack! 1 whole zucchini is only 45 calories! It was a fun experiment.

Here are some fun recipes for veggie snacks:

1. Baked Kale Chips

2. Spicy Kale Chips

3. Veggie Chips (roots like beets, sweet potatoes, carrots, etc)

4. Herbed Veggie Chips (zucchini, squash, sweet potato, carrots)

5. Taro Root Chips

6. Carrot Chips

7. Sweet Potato Chips

8. Cinnamon Sweet Potato Chips

9. Spicy Sweet Potato Chips

10. Beet Chips (saving the best for last! These are my FAV!!!)

  1. Oh awesome! Thank you for sharing all of these! I can’t wait to try those Beet ones!

  2. Yum, that looks really great! I also love slicing up some cucumber and sprinkling it with cayenne pepper and a bit of salt (or garlic salt). It’s a great salty snack with practically no calories when I get an attack of the munchies!
