THE BEST CRISPY BAKED ZUCCHINI FRIES

Thinly sliced zucchini dusted in breadcrumbs and baked until crispy and golden is a great alternative to potato fries with less than half the carbs and calories!

As many of you have noticed from my instagram and snapchat, we don’t eat much fried food around here. I love baking everything instead of frying because it’s so much healthier and honestly, tastes just as good if not better.

Now it’s time for the long-awaited baked zucchini fries. They are crispy, crunchy, addictive and surprisingly easy to make!

To begin, simple slice your zucchini into circles or long strips. Either way works fine but we prefer the strips! Next, dip the zucchini into eggs then into breadcrumbs. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden and crispy. Make sure you allow them to bake long enough until they are golden and crispy so they hold and not become soggy.
