One of my favorite ways to eat zucchini, dredged in almond meal and spices – this 30-minute dish will be a crowd pleaser.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Yield: 2


  • 2 large zucchinis
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • pinch of sea salt and pepper to taste
  • 1-2 large eggs


  • Preheat oven to 425f degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Cut zucchini into thick slices and pat dry with a paper towel.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix almond meal with seasonings.
  • In a separate shallow bowl crack eggs and whisk together.
  • Dip zucchini pieces into the egg wash, then dredge in almond meal mix. Make sure they are well coated.
  • Add each piece to a baking sheet, make sure they’re not overlapping.
  • Bake for 25 minutes, flipping halfway with tongs to get them crispy and golden on each side.
  • Serve zucchini fries warm with your favorite dipping sauce of choice! I love marinara and pesto or nothing at all.

  1. the egg just collected the flour and didn’t stick to the zucchini so I have globs of egg flour and bare zucchini

    • You could try full fat coconut milk, that’s what I used on my breaded chicken fingers that are aip!

        • Any full-fat coconut milk in a can, I like bpa-free can, I believe the brand I get is called native forest or similar. As much as you need to coat that amount of zucchini.
