Here’s the recipe for Keto Zucchini Fries:
- 2 medium zucchinis
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 large eggs
- Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it with oil.
- Cut the zucchinis into fry-like shapes, approximately 1/4 inch thick and 3-4 inches long.
- In a shallow bowl, whisk the eggs until well beaten.
- In a separate bowl, combine the almond flour, grated Parmesan cheese, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, salt, and black pepper. Mix well.
- Dip each zucchini fry into the beaten eggs, allowing any excess to drip off. Then, coat the fry in the almond flour mixture, pressing gently to adhere the coating.
- Place the coated fries on the prepared baking sheet, leaving a little space between each fry.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes, or until the fries are golden brown and crispy.
- Once cooked, remove the fries from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before serving.
- Serve the Keto Zucchini Fries as a side dish or snack. They can be enjoyed on their own or paired with a keto-friendly dip such as ranch dressing or sugar-free ketchup.
