  1. Why? to lower the fat content? Smoke in the kitchen?
    Stick with extra virgin olive oil and quickly pan fry them. So much better IMHO.

    1. You can spray them with oil and put them in the oven at about 400 - preferably on a rack over a pan, so they will brown on all sides. If you bake them flat in a pan, they will be soggy on one side and crisp on the other.

      I would just pan fry them in a few tablespoons of oil. If it's hot enough, they won't absorb a lot. The oil should be just shy of the smoke point.
