Cheese Baked Zucchini Fries

Cheese Baked Zucchini Fries

(and Zucchini Parmesan)


Prep Time: 7 minutes Cook Time: 7-12 minutes Serves: 2+



  • 3 Small Zucchini, cut into long strips or rounds

  • 2 Tbsp Coconut Oil

  • 4 Tbsp Flour

  • 4 Tbsp Panko Bread Crumbs

  • 4Tbsp Hard Grated Parmesan Cheese

  • Salt and Pepper to taste

  • Marinara Sauce, optional – see below


  • Set oven to broil and adjust oven rack as necessary.

  • In a large zippered plastic bag, combine coconut oil, salt, pepper and zucchini strips. Zip bag and shake to thoroughly coat zucchini.

  • Add flour, panko and parmesan to zip bag.  Shake again to evenly distribute crust mixture.

  • Toss coated zucchini on a foil-lined baking sheet and broil for 7 minutes.

  • If making zucchini fries, serve at this point with dipping sauce of choice.

  • If making zucchini parmesan, cook an additional 5 minutes and serve with a generous topping of marinara sauce. I like to serve atop garlic bread to give a little extra substance and make a filling meal.
