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.
