I love spicy food and this seasoning is my favourite. For those that are calorie-conscious, zucchini chips are not only low in carbs but also calories: they have about 50 kcal per serving and are a good source of heart-healthy potassium!

Note: When looking for ingredients, try to get them in their most natural form (organic, without unnecessary additives).

  2. Slice the zucchini thinly on a mandolin. You can do the same job with knife, just make sure you slice it as thin as possible. Cover the slices in the spices. Low-Carb Spicy Zucchini Chips
  3. Spread the zucchini slices in a single layer on a baking tray lined with baking paper. You can put them close, they will shrink to about 60%. Sprinkle with salt and spray with cooking oil. Place in the oven and cook for 45-60 minutes or until golden and crispy.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

At what point do you put the spices on, before it goes in the oven?
Thanks!

Yes, it's before you place them in the oven - just added some info in the steps 😊

Can't wait to try these. Just starting cleaner eating with the whole fam and trying to find recipes the kids will enjoy...they're pretty scared of eating better and what that means, but so far no big complaints!

Thank you Elaine, I'm glad to hear that! Let me know when you try them 😊

Never mind, just saw it.

That's ok. If you are wondering how I got the values, I usually use the USDA database.

Hey! Thanks for this awesome recipe, just one question though. Do you know how many calories are in this serving?
Thanks!

Sure - the nutrition facts are at the top of the post (54.4 kcal per serving) 😊

Looks damn good - can they be saved or do they have to be eaten right away???

Reply

Thank you! They don't usually last for long when I make them 😊 I guess you can if you make them really crispy - best in dehydrator or oven on very low temperature and then keep in air-tight container so they don't get soft.

The best low-carb crisps I found! Honestly, I love the spicy seasoning. Thank you so much!
