Yummy In your Tummy Zucchini Chips!

Hey Hey Hey!
Are you ready for the weekend?! I sure am!! (even though it still entails working)


I have a great treat for you today but before I tell you about it I just have to let you know I am on a happiness blog high! You wanna know why?!?




Do you see the Major blue spike?! That's why!
All because of Katie and her inspirational advise in her guest post and Pink Lou Lou pointing them out, all of you incredible, awesome, super cool peeps came on over here and checked this little blog out! Not only did you just stop by, a lot of you gave me some blog lovin too! (You all seriously made my day!!)

Now onto your treat!... 
After posting those zucchini chips several of you told me how delish they looked and how you were wanting to try them and had them pinned too! 


So I decided to try them out and share with you that they are Amazingly Delishish!
They were super easy to make I found the recipe HERE through Pinterest. The major plus is they are basically the healthiest chip ever invented! This WHOLE recipe is only 226 calories!! And thanks to my amazing boyfriend for letting me barrow his camera while hes off training on a base in MI, I was able to document my making of the yummy treat below!


Zucchini Chips


What ya will need: 
3 medium sized Zucchinis, rinsed
1/4 cup Parmesan, shredded***
1/2 cup Bread Crumbs*

1 tsp Garlic Powder**
1 tsp Onion Powder
1 tsp Dried Parsley
1 tsp Black Pepper
1/2 tsp Paprika
2 Egg Whites

I actually didn't follow all of these ingredients exactly due to the fact that I had most of everything I needed already.
*For the bread crumbs I simply toasted some bread and crumbled it up
**instead of garlic powder I used garlic salt
***instead of shredded Parmesan cheese I used 



Got all that?! Okay then let start cookin good lookin!


Preheat your oven to 450

 Step One: Thinly slice your zucchinis

Step Two: Lay your slices on a paper towel for at least 10 minutes to let excess moisture drain.

Step Three: Mix together all the dry ingredients. In a bowl whisk the egg whites until frothy. (I didn't really know what frothy meant so in translation: until they get kinda bubbly)

Step Four: Place the zucchini slices in the egg mixture, then coat in the bread crumb mixture. Place on a baking sheet. 

Step Five: When your baking sheet is full, bake for 5 minutes. Pull out the baking sheet and flip over the zucchini chips. Return to the oven for another 7 minutes. 

Step Six: Serve warm with fresh grated Parmesan cheese (this is optional)
I just sprinkled my Parmesan over them when they came out of the oven.

Perfecto!
 *said in an Italian accent while kissing my fingers and throwing them in the air*

You can get a chip this satisfying out of a greasy bag! (okay minus when the cravings for when hit)


These little goodies made my night! A long with my favorite green tea, blogging (duhh!) and talking to my honey! (this oh so wonderful moment pictured only lasted about ten minutes before I conked out for the night)
I even have a few left that I brought for my lunch! (If they last till then!)
Anywho now that I have given you a craft and a recipe to try this weekend I am saying adios! (don't worry ill be back Monday! or maybe even before that!)
I hope you have a super duper weekend!
Hugs and Kisses
