Baked Zucchini Parmesan Crisps | Delish D'Lites

I’m a sucker for crunchy things.  Chips, fries, fried chicken, anything labelled “crunchy”, “crispy” or “crusted”, crunch is definitely my weakness.  In my never-ending attempt to have my cake and eat it too, I’m constantly looking for ways to get my crunch on without too much guilt.  I’ve always loved fried zucchini, so I decided this would be a great place to start.  With Spring here, there’s a ton of tender zucchini floating around everywhere, so why not transform traditional fried zucchini into a snack you can actually feel good about?  Believe me, I’m a skeptic when it comes to “lightened-up” food that’s supposed to be as satisfying as the original.  That’s usually never the case.  But these baked zucchini parmesan crisps definitely give me the fried zucchini taste, without the extra love handles! It’s a win-win!
