Crispy Baked Zucchini Fries

This zucchini fries recipe is one of our absolute favorites! Super crispy parmesan-herb breading on the on the outside with tender zucchini on the inside.  No oil involved here – you just don’t need it. These healthy fries turn out amazingly crisp right out of the oven and always such a huge hit with everyone that tries them.

We’ve love making healthier alternatives to traditional fried foods like our Baked Fried Green Tomatoes, Avocado Fries, Air Fryer Jalapeno Bacon Cheese Balls, and Baked Mozzarella Cheese Sticks.

Every summer, I end up with way more tomatoes and zucchini that I can handle, however our friends love it. Wishing I could hand off baskets of zucchini to all of you. However, what I can do is provide you with this fantastic fried zucchini recipe that i know you are going to love. We have been enjoying our zucchini in every way,  but these Oven Fried Zucchini Sticks are something extra special.

How To Make Baked Zucchini Fries

  1. Begin by cutting your zucchinis into spears. Then rinse, and let dry (you can also use a paper towel to absorb access water).

  4. Place a few zucchini sticks into the flour mixture and coat them well.
  5. Then place the floured zucchini sticks in the beaten eggs.

Baked Zucchini Sticks Tips:

  • For best results, bread the zucchini in two batches so the crumbs don’t clump up.
  • The recipe is written for four servings, but you can easily make this for one or two servings by simply cutting the recipe in half or in quarters.
  • Dairy-free version – swap the parmesan cheese for more breadcrumbs.
  • Gluten-free version – swap the breadcrumbs for gluten-free seasoned crumbs.
  • Serve these as an appetizer with Homemade Ranch dressing or marinara sauce (my kids like them with ketchup), but they are great on their own too!

    Tried this delicious recipe, my family loved it! I used my mother-in-laws French fry cutter to make the fries, it worked great. So easy to make and with an abundance of zucchini it used up three. I’ll definitely make this again and again, thank you. @kitchenfunwithmy3sons or tag #kitchenfunwithmy3sons!
