Zucchini Parmesan Snacks

If you're like me, you might always be hungry.  Especially when my training really ramps up, I'm good for a meal every couple of hours.  The problem is that sometimes it's hard to make good choices.  I like to know that I have food to munch and snack on throughout the day.  I made these yesterday, and they are just fantastic.  I used a recipe that I found, but I also modified it a little bit to make it just a little healthier.

These are great to munch on to to have as a the vegetable component for a meal.  Hope you enjoy them too!

Parmesan Zucchini Snacks

Ingredients:

zucchini (I used 2 pretty sizable ones), sliced about 1/8in thick

3/4 cup of panko

3/4 cup of shredded parmesan cheese

olive oil (about 3/4 cup)

sea salt

Italian seasoning (with no salt)

 

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Mix in a bowl the panko, parmesan, sea salt, and Italian seasoning.  Put the olive oil in a separate bowl.  For each round, drag it through the olive oil, and then coat with panko/parmesan mixture.  Place on baking sheet covered with tin foil.  

Bake for 15-20 minutes depending on your oven.  (Mine needed 18 minutes)  Cheese should be starting to brown but not burned.
