  • Yield: 30-40 chips 1x
  • Diet: Gluten Free


These Air Fryer Zucchini Chips are crispy, golden, and seasoned with parmesan, garlic, and herbs. They make a wonderfully healthy snack this is addictive and so flavorful! Low-carb and gluten-free.


  • 1 medium zucchini
  • 1/41/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
  • Cracked black pepper – optional


  1. Prepare the zucchini – line a baking sheet with a few clean paper towels. Use a mandolin slicer set to 1.55mm or a sharp kitchen knife to slice the zucchini into chips. Place the zucchini slices in even layers on the lined baking sheet and sprinkle them with some salt. Let sit for 10 minutes. DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP!
  2. Season – Combine the parmesan cheese with the garlic powder, paprika, and Italian seasoning in a medium bowl. Dry the zucchini slices well by patting them with more paper towels to remove even more moisture. Add the zucchini slices to a large bowl and coat them in the oil, then in the parmesan herb seasoning.
  3. Cook – preheat the air fryer to 345°F and spray the basket with olive oil cooking spray to prevent sticking. Working in batches, place the coated zucchini in an even layer into the air fryer basket and cook for 12-14 minutes, checking the chips as they cook and removing any that are done, continue cooking the rest since some may cook faster than others. Immediately place the cooked chips onto a clean paper towel to cool and crisp up even more.
  4. Devour – serve immediately and enjoy!


  • Using a mandolin slicer to cut the zucchini into slices is the best method for perfectly sized, uniform chips.
  • Do not skip the steps for drying the zucchini since this is key to get them nice and crispy.
  • Coat the zucchini well for the best flavor.
  • The chips will crisp up more as they cool so let them cool for at least 5 minutes before serving.
