Zucchini Chips

I guess zucchini grows pretty well for most people. Sometimes I try to be nice and give someone a fresh, large zucchini from my garden. I haven't been successful once. Never fail, they tell me, "I've got zucchini growing out of my ears." Okay then... that's a no.

But if someone ever wants to be nice to you and give you a zucchini just say yes and try making zucchini chips! It is super easy and a great replacement for potato chips covered in synthetic oils. These GAPS zucchini chips keep in the fridge forever and I've left them on the counter for a week and they've been fine! My mountain biking group loved them so I thought I'd share them with you too!

making zucchini chips

1. Slice zucchini into 1/8" slices. It's almost as thin as you can get them with just a knife--that's what I use. Alternatively, you can use a mandolin slicer or a large food processor with a slicing blade in it!

2. Toss them in oil, RealSalt season salt (so good!), and salt. Then arrange them in a single layer on a dehydrator tray.

    Hi, I’ve just discovered your gaps recipes and they all look excellent! You’re giving me hope that I might be able to entice my 8 year old, who has a major sweet tooth, to stick with the diet, so thank you for that!

    Anyway, can you share what dehydrator you use?

      Hi Katherine! Yes I LOVE my Excalibur dehydrator! I’ve recently done other things like green beans, carrots, and lots of fruit for hiking and backpacking. But yeah if you are trying to stick with low sugar for him its great to turn veggies into “chips.” I try different kinds of salts and I love RealSalt’s SeasonAll!! Here is the link for the dehydrator! Excalibur 3900B 9 Tray Deluxe Dehydrator, Black

      And here is the link for the salt:) Real Salt Salt, Season, 8.25-Ounce
