Cheesy Vegan Zucchini Chips

For those of you who A) have no idea what to do with zucchini when you buy it or B) think you can’t have cheese if you’re vegan…

I have a little snack for ya.

I’ll admit that these smelled scary in the oven at first and I thought it would be a bust, but these turned out to be SO delicious & easy to eat.

I already released the Eating for Abs Meal Plan but honestly, I’ll add these to the list of approved snacks.

Here’s what to do:

Preheat your oven to 225 F. Slice the zucchini into thin slices about 1/4 inch thick. Mix the slices in a bowl with the cheese, olive oil, nutritional yeast, salt and pepper. Spread evenly onto a baking pan and bake at 225 for two hours, flipping halfway. Depending on how thin you actually sliced these, the baking time could vary so check on them until they are golden brown or crispy on the edges. Remove from the oven and let them sit for 10 or so minutes.

Enjoy these cheesy vegan zucchini chips!
