  5. Combine the almond flour, spices, and cheese in a second bowl. Mix well.

  7. Lightly spray the breaded zucchini fries with cooking spray/oil to help crisp them (optional)
  8. Bake on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper for 15 minutes. Then, turn them carefully with a fork, and bake for about 10 more minutes or until they are golden brown and crispy on the outside but tender in the middle.
  9. Serve and enjoy!

Chef Jenn’s Tips

  • Grated – not shredded – Parmesan cheese is best in this recipe.
  • Try to keep the zucchini cut the same thickness – about 1/2-inch thick maximum – for even cooking.
  • After dredging the zucchini in the egg-mayonnaise mixture, press them really well into the almond flour and spices to get a nice coating on them.
  • A bit of oil spray will help them crisp up nicely.

Any keto-friendly dip will work! Some of my favorites are keto Ranch Dressing, keto Horsey Sauce, this low-carb marinara sauce, or for thick and funky flavor, dip them into blue cheese. I also love them with my famous Green Goddess Dip.

    Best snacks ever! I love the parmesan crust on these and so glad I realized it needed to be grated and not shredded. Good tip.
