These crispy Air Fryer Zucchini Chips are healthy, oil-free, and made with just 5 ingredients! This quick and easy gluten-free air-fried zucchini rounds recipe is vegan and allergy-free; no eggs, dairy, or nuts needed! Just like Italian fried zucchini, this seasoned and breaded, crunchy, low-carb appetizer is perfect for dipping, served as a side dish, or as a kid-friendly snack!




  1. Slice your zucchini into 1/8-inch thick rounds and set them aside in a bowl.
  2. In another small bowl, mix together the Dijon mustard and non-dairy milk. In a third bowl mix together the breadcrumbs and seasonings of choice.
  3. Prepare to bread your zucchini rounds by placing the bowls and air fryer basket in an assembly line.
  4. Take each zucchini round and dip it in the dijon milk mixture with a fork, allowing excess liquid to drip off, then place the round in the breadcrumbs using one hand to cover the zucchini, pressing the crumbs on lightly before placing it in the air fryer basket. Repeat until your air fryer basket has a single layer of breaded zucchini chips with ample room between each round.
  5. Air fry the zucchini at 400°F for about 8-10 minutes. Remove the basket and flip each piece before air frying for another 4-5 minutes until golden brown.
  6. Repeat this cooking process until you've completed all the zucchini chips. Place air-fried chips on a wire rack to prevent from from getting soggy.
  7. Serve hot with your favorite dipping sauce!


  • Storage: The best way to store leftovers is to allow them to cool to room temperature before placing them in an airtight container with a paper towel lining the bottom and placing the container in the refrigerator. Use them within 1-3 days.
  • Reheating: Place the leftover zucchini rounds in a single layer in your air fryer set to 400°F and air fry for about 2-3 minutes until the zucchini is hot and crisp again. Alternatively, you can place them on a baking sheet and bake them at 400°F for 10 minutes, flipping halfway through, until crispy.
