Wondering if you can make zucchini chips in the air fryer? YES, you can! I’ve been making baked zucchini chips for years, and recently decided to try them using my air fryer. They’re even better! These air fryer zucchini chips crisp up evenly, are much quicker than the oven, and make a delicious, naturally low carb snack.

Ingredients For Air Fryer Zucchini Chips
This section explains how to choose the best ingredients for air fryer zucchini chips, what each one does in the recipe, and substitution options. For measurements, see the recipe card below.
- Zucchini – Look for a firm dark green zucchini that doesn’t have any nicks or cuts on it. The thickness doesn’t matter — any will do!
- Olive oil – Use extra virgin olive oil for best flavor.
- Sea salt & black pepper
Feel free to change it up by tossing the zucchini in different seasonings:
Can you make air fryer zucchini chips without breadcrumbs?
Yes! While many zucchini chips are made with breadcrumbs, this recipe doesn’t use any so they get nice and crunchy… AND they are less work to make. If you are looking for breaded zucchini, check out my pan fried zucchini slices.
How To Make Zucchini Chips In The Air Fryer
This section shows how to air fry zucchini chips with step-by-step photos and details about the technique. For full instructions, see the recipe card below.
- Slice zucchini. You want it about 1/8 inch thick.
TIP: Use a mandoline for slicing! This will ensure that your zucchini chips are even thickness and get crispy. It’s hard to slice that thinly using a knife.
- Dry. Use a paper towel to pat any excess liquid off of the zucchini slices.
- Season. Toss zucchini slices with olive oil, sea salt, and black pepper to evenly coat the slices.
- Air fry zucchini chips. Place zucchini slices in a single layer and cook in the preheated air fryer. Start checking zucchini slices after 8 minutes.
TIP: Don’t crowd the air fryer. Cook in batches so that you don’t crowd the zucchini slices in the air fryer, or they won’t get browned and crispy.
Store leftover air fryer zucchini slices in an airtight container for 2-3 weeks in your pantry. If they get soft, you can crisp them up again in the air fryer for a couple of minutes.
