I love eating healthy food.

I also love chips.

It’s a serious struggle.

But recently I discovered the best of both worlds: Cucumber chips!

There is nothing like a fresh cucumber from the farmer’s market or your garden and I love coming up with delicious cucumber recipes. Right now, my favorite recipe for cucumbers is baked cucumber chips! This recipe is super simple, customizable, and pretty much guilt-free.

These healthy chips are made right in the oven, unlike many other recipes that require a dehydrator.

How to Make Baked Cucumber Chips

First, take your cucumber and slice it up. Prime thickness is about an 1/8 of an inch. You want to make sure they’ll “cook” evenly. Using a mandoline will help keep them uniform.

Next, pat them dry with a towel and throw the raw cucumber slices into a bowl and mix in your seasoning of choice.

Seasoning Options

There are so many different varieties of spices and seasonings for these cucumber chips. Here are some of my favorite:

Onion and Garlic
Powdered garlic and salt

Salt and Vinegar Chips
Salt and apple cider vinegar (I prefer Bragg’s)

Smoked Cucumber Chips
Smoked paprika, salt, and garlic powder

Lemon Pepper
Freshly squeezed lemon juice and ground black pepper

You could also try some dill pickle chips with dill and ACV…or herb chips with rosemary and thyme – get creative!

Then, stick them in the oven on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet for 3-4 hours on 170 degrees – slow and low so the chips don’t burn, but still come out dried and crispy. Cooking time will depend on how large your cucumbers are.

Top Tip

If your oven temperature is off, this will cause your cucumber chips to either overcook or undercook. It’s a good idea to get an oven thermometer if you suspect your temperature isn’t correct.
