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! 
The Best Crispy Baked Zucchini FriesAs 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.

We’ve been experimenting a lot lately with healthier alternatives to the regular potatoes. We’ve tried the baked avocado fries, the baked sweet potato wedges, baked guacamole stuffed onion rings, and let’s not forget the baked broccoli and cauliflower tots. All these dishes are great alternatives to fries!
The Best Crispy Baked Zucchini FriesNow 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.

I paired them with out favorite chipotle sauce but any other sauce or ketchup will work great as well! The Best Crispy Baked Zucchini Fries

  1. This recipe is a fail. Dipped zucchini in eggs, rolled in panko and crumbs would not stick! I think flour is missing.

  2. Made these last night to accompany some Pineapple Fried Rice. They were delicious. Will definitely make more.

    1. I have not tried freezing them as zucchini does not hold up well frozen. If you were to freeze them, I would suggest freezing them before cooking.

  3. Please start adding your name as well as the name of the recipe to your photos so I can make your recipe instead of the zillion others. Thanks so much. Judy

  4. Where is the nutrition info listed for this recipe?

  5. Made these with my kids. My niece who has never liked zucchini (except Z bread) sat and snacked on the first batch while we waited on the rest to finish. 👍🏼

  6. I made these and they’re FANTASTIC! Best zucchini fries I’ve ever had! Panko is the way to go for breading. We’re vegan so we used violife vegan Parmesan + nutritional yeast for the cheese part and substituted plant-based milk (cashew) for the eggs to help the breeding stick. Even my picky eater boyfriend inhaled them!

  7. Made these last night for my kids & they were a hit!

    1. I had trouble getting the mixture to stick to the Zuchini.
      Followed instructions on dipping in egg and then mixture.
      Any ideas?

  8. MAde these TONIGHT wiTh frozen strips of zucchini. Came out tasty. Not as crunchy of an EXTERIOR as i like But it tasted grEat.

  9. These turned out delicious 🙂
    I think anyone expecting them to be super Crunchy is forgetting that they’re ZUCCHINI – a very moist vegetable. The outside/breading did get nice and crispy. I dipped mine in Dei Fratelli Fire Roasted Pizza Sauce – so yummy!
