Baked parmesan zucchini chips are one of my favorite healthy keto-friendly snacks. It’s savory, low-carb, and perfectly cheesy.
After one bite, I know it’ll be your favorite too.
Zucchini is one of the few low-carb vegetables you can eat on a keto diet. And it’s a great thing considering its powerful nutritional profile.
Zucchini is nutritious with iron, calcium, and zinc and contains a good dose of vitamins A, C, and B.
As hinted by its dark green hues on the skin, zucchini is also a good source of antioxidants. Antioxidants are plant compounds that protect your body from damages of free radicals.
They provide the perfect anti-aging benefits and strengthen one’s immune system.
It’s a great thing that this veggie crisp uses zucchini as its main ingredient.
Since zucchini is so versatile in cooking, you can find all kinds of keto hacks with this low-carb veggie. Tarter tots, cheesy bread, pasta zoodles to chips, zucchinis to name just a few.
But out of all, I’ve tried, zucchini chips are my favorite way to eat zucchinis on keto.
While they are not as crunchy as you might’ve expected, they are savory and satisfying. They are much healthier than potato chips and way more fun than veggie sticks.
