Air Fryer Fried Zucchini Chips are the perfect alternative to traditional chips. These dehydrated zucchini chips are so good. The cooking process and elimination of the panko mixture for these zucchini slices make them the perfect keto snack.
At only 3 net grams of carbs per serving. This shelf-stable healthy chip is a Power Fryer Oven recipe on the dehydrator function. This function uses a low temp hot air to draw out the moisture in food making it more shelf-stable.
What Are Some Different Ways To Season Air Fried Zucchini Chips?
The best way, in other words, and the way I like to do it most often is seasoning it. I like to sprinkle some seasoning on it while it’s still hot and on the Air Fryer Baking Sheet.
Some of the things I like to use to season my zucchini chips are:
- Italian Seasoning
- Garlic Powder
- a pinch of salt
You can also add a little bit of dip on them in sauces such as:
- Sour Cream
- Garlic Aioli
- Ranch Dressing
- or even Sugar-Free Marinara Sauce
Shelf Life Of Zucchini Chips
You can safely store these Air Fryer Zucchini Chips in an airtight container. They will last up to 8-10 years when they are kept at a stable temperature of 70 degrees F.
I recommend investing in a Food Saver system where it vacuum seals the bags. That way all the oxygen gets pulled out and you are able to extend the shelf life of the chips!
Tips For Making Dehydrated Zucchini Chips
- Evenly Cut | The biggest tip I can give is to make sure your zucchini chips are evenly cut. If you have nice knife skills slice away or reach for a mandolin where you get even cuts.
- Slice Thin| Thin slices allow the chips to dehydrate they can crisp up and give you that crunch factor you are wanting.
- Season | You can go a basic salt and pepper seasoning or dress them up with some Cajun or season salt. Feel free to play around with your spices and create different flavors of chips as you begin making them more and more.
Making sure to blot out the moisture from the zucchini is also good to do. In fact, sit them down on a paper towel as you are cutting the rest.

How Do I Make Crispy Zucchini Chips in the Air Fryer
Follow this simple recipe to get the perfect crispy zucchini chips in no time. So much faster and easier (much more healthy) than deep frying.
- Firstly, slice your fresh zucchini into thin and I do this with a mandolin slicer, which is important for getting consistently thick slices.
- Secondly, toss them in whatever seasonings you want to use. By all means, anything you want, coat your air-fried zucchini in parmesan cheese, panko bread crumbs, or whatever.
It’s easy to coat the zucchini because it’s moist. It won’t even require cooking spray or olive oil. In a bowl, combine whatever it is that you want to coat the zucchini with then toss in the slices and stir. That’s it.
Once you’ve coated zucchini, lay it in a single layer in your air fryer basket or on your racks. Cook for a few minutes, flip and let the other side cook to a nice golden brown.
Can You Make Zucchini Chips in A Dehydrator?
I use the dehydrator function on my Power Fryer Oven, however, it acts as a traditional dehydrator. So, for an actual dehydrator, I would assume you could, as my power oven is similar.
But you might have to watch and adjust your time on how long you go to dehydrate your chips.
