What kind of Zucchini should I choose for this recipe?

Always pick a small or medium size zucchini for this recipe which is dark in color and is firm in texture.


Yes it is a no-breading zucchini chips recipe. That is why it is a low carb and keto friendly recipe.

How is the texture of these Zucchini Parmesan Chips?

These are not zucchini crisps or fries. Therefore the texture is not super crisp. Zucchini makes it juicy and succulent, while parmesan on top crisps up the chips. So it is a great combination of both.

Can I double the recipe?

Yes you can double the recipe. You have to cook inn 2 batches.

Can I store these chips?

This is a quick snack recipe. I wouldn't recommend storing it. Make how much you want to eat and finish. If you have any left-overs, then refrigerate and heat up again in air fryer before eating.

Are Zucchini Parmesan Chips Healthy?

Yes these Zucchini chips are super healthy. And the best part is that this recipe is low carb recipe and keto-friendly.
The most flavorful Zucchinis are small to medium size. And darker the color, more nutrition dense it is. 100 gram of zucchini has just 3 gram carbs, 1.2 grams protein, 0.3 gram fat & only 17 calories. It is packed with Vitamin C, Vitamin B6 and Potassium. We love using zucchini in our weekly menu.
Parmesan Cheese is really good for you too. Parmesan is an Italian hard aged cheese, and it undergoes a lengthy aging process that averages two years. It is a rich source of protein. Actually, it is the most protein-dense among all cheese and also beats any meat on a gram-for-gram basis. Since it is low in lactose, you digest parmesan easily as compared to other cheese. It is also a rich source of Minerals like calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and more.
