Thank you to Mothering member fayebond for contributing this recipe. Find more recipes here.



  • olive oil
  • 2 good sized zucchini
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup coarsely ground almond flour (you can make your own in any blender but I looooove my vitamix for this part).
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • freshly ground black pepper


Preheat the oven to 475 degrees and coat a baking sheet with olive oil.

Cut the zucs into 1/4-inch thick round “tray” shaped slices. In one bowl, toss the zucchini trays with the melted butter. In another bowl, mix the Parmesan, almond flour, salt, pepper. Dip each tray into the Parmesan mixture, coating it evenly and press the coating on to make it stick.

Carefully place trays in a single layer on the oiled baking sheet.

Bake the “trays” until browned and crisp, 25 to 30 minutes. Remove with spatula. Serve immediately.
