Parmesan Zucchini Chips

Today I have a super simple recipe for you guys. One that I always come back to when in need of a snack and that my friends request time after time.
Even those who claim to dislike zucchini pop these little babies in their mouth as fast as humanly possible.
To be honest, even I don’t have self-control with these Parmesan Zucchini Chips, good thing they are ultra light and packed with goodness.

There are no breadcrumbs in this recipe, which makes these chips a gluten-free and guilt-free snack that you can enjoy anytime you want.
By baking at a relatively high temperature, the zucchini gets nice and soft, with an almost creamy texture, while the Parmesan turns crispy and golden brown. Thin rounds of crispy goodness.
