Why You Will LOVE This Recipe
- These keto-friendly chips are low in fat, thanks, to my air fryer. The excess oil drips off and you are left with a crispier chip rather than baking them in the oven where the oil staying in the tray. We need the little bit of oil to really get them to crack, but not much at all.
- The recipe is incredibly simple. As you can see below, it’s just three ingredients (well, five, if you include separate ingredients in the mix). Plus, it takes no time at all to prepare. You’ll be feasting on zucchini before your patience wears thin and you start looking in the cookie jar.
- Like store-bought potato chips, you can customize the flavoring of these chips. Want dill pickle chips? Just add dill seasoning!
- 4 small, colorful zucchinis
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp mix of salt, chili and coriander
Step 1: Wash and dry your zucchini. Using a mandolin and holding your zucchini at an angle, slice them into chips. (Make sure you keep your fingers away from the blade!)
Step 2: Drizzle in the oil and spice mix and rub all over to coat the zucchini chips well.
Step 3: Place in your air fryer in a single layer in the basket. Fry at 375 F for 7- 8 minutes until the chips are slightly browned and crispy. They will get more crispy as they dry.
Step 4: Cook the zucchini in batches until you have cooked them all, and lay them out to dry nicely before serving or storing.
Step 5: Enjoy with a healthy dip or snack on them on their own.
- If you don’t have a mandolin, don’t worry about it. You can use a potato peeler; it works a peach. Or you can use your brilliant knife skills. Just try to get all the slices the same thinness so that they cook in the same amount of time.
- You can leave your chips out to dry a bit before cooking — this makes them extra crispy.
- Add any spice mix you like. We love chili in our family, but plain salted is also delicious.
When adding them to the air fryer, make sure they are not covering each other or you will end up with soggy chips.
Use a potato peeler and dry them out a little before tossing in oil and air frying. You can also use the dehydrating function on your air fryer if yours has it.
They will be slightly browned and crispy, but they get crispier as they dry. Just make sure they don’t go brown all over or they will taste burnt. In my air fryer it took 7 minutes on 375 F. Yours may vary slightly, so set it for lower times, open the drawer, and have a look. Put them back in if they require more time.
They are all great, we use a Philips Essentials XL.
How To Store Air Fryer Zucchini Chips
Let the chips cool completely then put them in a resealable bag or an airtight container. Once in the fridge, they should keep for about 3 days. When it comes time to eat, you can let them attain room temperature and eat as is. If you prefer them warm, you can reheat the zucchini chips in the air fryer for a few minutes at 350°F or in the oven on a baking sheet at 350°F until they are warm enough (should only take a few minutes).
