Everyone loves a good chip to snack on, but what we don’t love is the calories that come with it. Instead of grabbing the bag of processed chips, make natural ones with zucchinis. With three simple ingredients, zucchini chips make a delicious snack that won’t tip the scale the wrong way. This chip will allow you to keep up with your New Year’s Resolution while still satisfying your crunchy craving.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

Servings: 1 large bowl

Ingredients:
2 green zucchinis (add more for more chips)
Salt and pepper

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
2. Slice zucchini thinly. (Thinner slices will allow for crispier chips.)

3. Lay zucchini on a well greased baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. (Don’t use too much olive oil, or the chips will be soggy.)
