Crispy Zucchini Protein Chips






     My friend Joyce had the BRILLIANT idea to make chips out of Zucchini!  I tweeked this concept into a veggie protein powerhouse.  Feel free to top with Salsa, Chili or just a little salt and enjoy plain~either way you can't go wrong!  Next time you get a hankering for Nachos or just a side to your Turkey Sandwich, turn to Crispy Zucchini Protein Chips to rock your healthy world!  An entire hearty serving is only 345 calories, 14.3g net carbs, and 40.8g protein (macros are for chips only).  Turn this into a meal with your favorite toppings or share for a favorite side.  ;)

Ingredients for one batch Zucchini Chips~
2 small Zucchini, grated
1 extra large Egg
1 bag Quest Cheddar Cheese Protein Chips, crushed or grind to powder in Magic Bullet

     Trim ends and grate Zucchini into cotton dish towel and vigorusly squeeze any excess liquid from Zucchini til feels dry.  Mix with Egg, crushed or powdered Protein Chips, Parmesan, Garlic, Onion Powder, Salt and Pepper til well blended.  Drop by 1/2 Tablespoon onto Silpat lined cookie sheet and pat to THIN circle.  Bake at 425 for 14 minutes or beginning to brown .  Finish by broiling on High for another 2 minutes til crisped, watching to ensure doesn't burn.  Remove and enjoy this crispy chip!  Good luck not eating them all before taking time to add a topper!  Enjoy  ;)
