Squash chips are a healthy snack alternative to regular chips and they pack a ton of flavor. These easy baked veggie chips are a crispy side dish or great for late night snacking. You will have zero guilt about eating these!
This might be the easiest veggie recipe I’ve ever made. It’s possible I’ve said that before, but I really mean it this time.
Plus, these squash chips taste good and they’re good for you. Not even in the questionable “good for you” way that I like to justify things. These are actually good for you.
They make a perfect healthy snack food so adjust the recipe accordingly to make however much you want. I only had one squash on hand so that’s what I made.
Tools you’ll need
- Baking sheet – it’s nice to have the lip so your chips don’t slide off the pan
- Olive Oil Sprayer – you want an even mist of olive oil on your chips and this helps to evenly distribute.
Ingredients you’ll need
Below is a list of the ingredients you’ll need to gather to make this recipe. Scroll all the way down for the full recipe card.
- Squash – I used one yellow squash aka summer squash.
- Seasonings – I use salt, pepper, and seasoned salt. Lemon pepper also works well or a blend like Montreal chicken or steak seasoning. You can customize to your liking.
- Olive Oil – Avocado oil would also work.
How to make Squash Chips
This is one of my easiest recipes.
- Step One: First, very thinly slice the squash into disks. Super thin, like chips.
- Step Two: Next, add the squash disks to a bowl and lightly drizzle or spray with olive oil, add in the seasonings, and toss to coat.
- Step Three: Finally, arrange the chips in a single layer onto a baking sheet that has been lined with foil (or a silicone mat) and bake in a 265°F preheated oven for 1-2 hours. Check them after an hour and keep an eye on them so they don’t get too crisp.
How to store leftovers
Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.
What’s the difference between a zucchini and a squash?
Not much! The main difference between a zucchini and a squash is the color.
Zucchini is green, squash is yellow.
Also, zucchini is usually straight and squash usually is larger at the bottom then tapers off. They taste the same and you can use either interchangeably in this recipe.
