Let me just say that Snip Chips seriously just took my snacking game to the next level! ← OMG. They’re made of parsnips, coconut ← my fav food in the world , and other delicious, nutritious ingreds. I’m pretty sure I have never eaten a parsnip ( until now ). I’m not even sure what one looks like. I will say, however, that they are super delish.
Parsnips are high in dietary fiber, folate, omega 3s, potassium, and vitamins C, E, and K. Coconut is my favorite source of healthy fat. It nourishes the thyroid, boosts metabolism, and turns your body into a lean, mean, fat-burning machine. It is super heart healthy, high in fiber, and has a low Glycemic Index, keeping your blood sugar stable and reducing cravings for other, not so healthy treats.
These snacks are raw, vegan, gluten free, and insanely tasty. Seriously, what more could you ask for?!?
I absolutely love fried zucchini… the taste and texture can’t be beat, however, as I am allergic to gluten and try to refrain from fried foods, I was left with a small, [yet tasty] void in my stomach. Thankfully, I have found something that is both gluten [[& waistband]] friendly + it really hits the spot! This recipe is so easy… and delicious! I made these bad boys twice this past week and they were a big hit!
here’s what you’ll need…
+ 2 zucchinis
+ gluten free corn flakes to use as breadcrumbs (if you are not g-free feel free to use regular breadcrumbs) i used these ones…
+ parmesan cheese, seasoned salt, garlic and onion powder to taste
+ one egg white
+ one baking sheet
+ parchment paper
+ a healthy appetite
here’s what you’ll do…
+ chop your zucchini
+ mix your dry ingredients… no measuring needed, just make sure you have enough parmesan to cover your slices. add seasoned salt, garlic powder, and onion powder according to your taste
+ crack one egg into a small bowl or ramekin and remove the yolk
+ dip your zucchini slices one by one into your egg white
+ immediately dip the same slice into your dry mixture, coating each side
+ place on your baking sheet which is covered in parchment paper
+ once each piece is coated and placed on your baking sheet, bake @ 450 for 10 minutes or until golden and crispy
