I love snacks that CRUNCH! So much that I can’t buy chips pretty much ever. I will keep on eating handful after handful. Geesh! I pretty much have no self-control when it comes to certain things! Perhaps I need to work on this. Or perhaps, I can create a fun healthy snack where it is OK to eat more!
Take my zucchini chips . Would Dr. Oz ever tell you not to eat 2 whole zucchini for a snack? No he would not!
A few weeks ago I was scrolling through interest, and I swear, that EVERY recipe I found required a food dehydrator. So the next day I went to Target and purchased one. I am so glad I did! I have dehydrated random things in my kitchen since!
Zucchini Chips were the first thing I wanted to make. I always have and always will love zucchini! I cut up 2 small zucchini into thin pieces and sprinkled a generous amount of garlic powder on them. I then arranged them into my new food dehydrator and let them dehydrate for 24 hours.
My food dehydrator came with a guide for dehydrating different vegetables. It advised me on how long to dehydrate each food item and what the consistency was supposed to be. I was excited because my zucchini chips turned out to be brittle at the end of this process. Like a real chip.
I rotated my dehydrator tray every few hours. ( not when I was sleeping though)
I stored my chips in a mason jar. This was a great choice as you want to make sure your chips continue to stay crispy. A plastic bag would work too.
THIS was a great guilt free crunchy snack!
