Zucchini and Kale Chips

  • 1 Zucchini
  • Salt, as desired
  • Paprika, as desired
  • Coconut oil


  1. Preheat oven to 250 degree
  2. Slice zucchini very thinly
  3. Toss in a bowl with salt, paprika, and oil. Be sure not to use too much oil or else your chips will be soggy. Also make sure not to use too much salt since the zucchini will shrink quite a bit while it bakes.
  4. Cover a baking tray with parchment paper and bake in the oven for 30 minutes. Flip, and bake for another 30 minutes or until brown and crispy.

1 lb. bag of Kale Chips (the method will be the same as above)
