We’re all for a fry that’s healthy (and grain free)! Easy to make and hard to resist. These tasty sticks will fly off your platter so make sure you double up.

 

Time: 10 minute prep, 25 minute bake time 

Yield: 30-40 “fries”

Ingredients:

 Wet Ingredients:

 Dry Ingredients:

Other:

1 medium zucchini

Spray olive oil or avocado oil

 

Directions: 

  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cut zucchini into “fries.” Note that the thinner the slices the crispier the fries will be once cooked.
  3. In a shallow bowl, mix the wet ingredients until fully incorporated. Set aside.
  4. In a food processor, combine all dry ingredients and pulse until a flour-like consistency is formed. Add this breading to a shallow bowl.
  5. One by one, coat the zucchini in the wet batter then with a fork, transfer to the breading, ensuring the zucchini is fully coated. Place each piece on the baking sheet, being sure to keep them spread out so that they don’t touch.
  6. Lightly spray the zucchini fries with oil of choice.
  7. Bake the zucchini fries for 25 minutes or until perfectly golden.
  8. Serve warm with dipping sauce of choice and enjoy.

 Note: To make the coating extra crispy or to reheat leftovers, pop the “fries” into an air fryer for a few minutes.
