Healthy, Gluten-Free Zucchini Chips

Zucchini Chips | 2CookinMamas

I am sure we all have friends or family with different dietary restrictions and, if they are coming to my house, I want to make sure there is something being served that they can eat. And since Chris, the other Cookin’ Mama, is gluten-intolerant I have been getting a lot of practice.  So when I was planning our  recent get-together I decided to try my hand at making these delicious Zucchini chips. Not only were they a hit with Chris but with everyone else as well.  They are perfect for either an appetizer or a dinner side and healthy too!

 Zucchini Chips


  • 3 large zucchini, cut into 1/4″ slices
  • 3/8 cup panko (gluten-free)
  • 3/8 cup Pecorino-Romano or Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 3/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/8 teaspoon Cajun seasoning (I use Emeril’s – it’s fantastic!)
  • Black pepper
  • 3 eggs


Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Prepare several large cookie sheets by lining with parchment paper then spraying with Pam or other non-stick spray. (A non-stick cookie sheet sprayed with Pam will work as well.)

Wash and dry zucchini then cut into thin 1/4″ slices.

In a medium bowl, mix panko, cheese and seasonings together. In another small bowl, beat egg with just a little bit of water. Set aside.

Take each slice of zucchini and dip first in egg-water mixture then into panko mixture, patting crumbs into each slice. Lay in a single layer on prepared cookie sheet.

Bake for 14-16 minutes, turning halfway through cooking time, until golden brown and crisp. Serve hot.

Will serve 6 as a dinner side and 6-10 as an appetizer.


It is so nice that Amazon is now carrying a nice line of gluten-free products. Check out the Glutino Gluten Free Breadcrumbs here.

      Hi Shirley. We love these in our house and make them instead of french fries most of the time. I love your link party and you are listed with link back on our link party page. I have Gluten-Free Wednesday’s link under

        I could totally see making these instead of French fries, especially with the cheesy factor. 😉 Thanks so much for the kind words on our event and we appreciate you linking up! 🙂 Our guidelines state that each recipe linked up should have the link to the GFW event it’s linked to. (“Please do not link to an image only or to a page/post with a list of carnivals.”) Otherwise, you get a link every week and we get linked to once. The link party pages are great for reference and we appreciate them, but we’d appreciate it if you’d link back somewhere in each post that you link up. Thanks!
