Try these delicious low-carb zucchini chips as a healthy alternative to normal potato chips. You’ll need:

1 Large Zucchini

2 tbsp vegetable oil

1 tbsp sea salt

1 tbsp pepper

2 tbps paprika (optional)

Just cut your zucchini into thin slices, and mix in a bowl with the salt, pepper, and oil. Throw in the paprika now for added spice. After that, all you need to do is put the zucchini on a baking sheet and in a 225 degree oven for 2+ hours. The key is to cook them “low and slow” to draw out the moisture and make them extra crispy.
