Healthy Baked Zucchini Fries Recipe

Zucchini

Simple, tasty and healthy!  All of the ingredients can be replaced with Gluten Free/ Dairy Free options if you want to make it Vegan friendly or to suit your dietary preferences.

Ingredients

(Makes 40-45 fries)

2-3 Zucchini, sliced into fry shapes or you can also slice them into circles to make chips

1/4 cup Flour

1/4 tsp Salt & Pepper

1/4 tsp Garlic Powder (I also used some onion powder and Paprika)

1/2 cup Milk

1 cup Seasoned Breadcrumbs

If you want it to be a tad spicier, add Cayenne Powder

 

Instructions

Preheat oven to 420F.

Place a cooling rack on a baking tray, and set aside.

Rinse the zucchini.  You can either peel the skin off or keep it on.

Mix the flour, spices, salt and pepper and place in one bowl.  In another bowl, have the milk ready and do the same for the Breadcrumbs.

Dip each zucchini stick in the flour, then the milk, then the breadcrumbs.

Place on the rack and bake 18-19 minutes.  Serve them while they are still hot and with a side of your favorite dipping sauce.  My absolute favorite dip which is also perfect for sandwiches, is Sensations by Compliments Chipotle Aioli Sauce.

Health Benefits

Zucchinis contain vitamin A, magnesium, folate,potassium, copper, and phosphorus . They also has a high content of omega-3 fatty acids, zinc, niacin, and protein. Moreover, vitamin B1, vitamin B6, vitamin B2, and calcium in zucchini assure optimal health.

 

I made these at 3:30 AM when I couldn’t sleep.

What are your favorite things to make for a late night snack?
