Ingredients

  • Avocado oil cooking spray
  • 1.2 pounds zucchini about 3 medium zucchini
  • 3/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F and grease a non-stick baking sheet with oil or cooking spray.
  • It's best to use a baking sheet without a baking paper to help the zucchini fries crisp. Thoroughly wash the zucchini and trim off the ends. Cut the zucchini into fries and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine Panko, Parmesan, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt and pepper, mix well, and set aside.
  • In another bowl combine flour, garlic powder, and salt. Crack the egg into a shallow bowl and whisk until frothy.
  • Working in batches, dredge zucchini fries into the flour mixture, dip into the eggs, making sure you allow it to drip the excess moisture. Next, coat in panko breadcrumbs mixture, pressing well to evenly coat.
  • Spread the fries onto the prepared baking sheet and lightly spray with cooking oil.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes flipping halfway until golden brown and crisp.
  • Serve with your favorite dip and enjoy

Notes

Substitutes:
  • Any cooking spray will work
  • Bread crumbs: any type to satisfy your dietary needs
  • Flour- we used whole wheat but other types of flour will work just fine
  • to make a keto-friendly version, swap the flour with almond flour and use pork rinds instead of panko
Storage:
Place leftovers in a container and store in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave when ready to eat. You may bake again for 10 minutes to reheat
