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