These yummy Baked Zucchini Fries are low carb, gluten-free, vegan and pair well with my delicious avocado mayo. Zucchini spears are coated with a flavorful gluten-free breading and baked for a healthier snack or side.
I decided to revisit this recipe and I was amazed how simple it was to make and how delicious it was. It has been a popular recipe on my website for over 4 years and it is loved by my readers. The almond flour is a great gluten-free breading alternative. I would advise you not to do any substitution, I have made this recipe so many times and it has worked perfectly with almond flour.
However, I have simplified the recipe for you, in the older versions, I made flax seed egg. I decided to add the ground flax seed with the almond flour and just dip the zucchini spears into unsweetened non-dairy milk before coating with the breading. Guess what! It worked like a charm.
Sometimes I just don’t feel for eating potatoes, please don’t get me wrong I do at times love some delicious crispy oven baked fries. As a matter of fact, I have several recipes for fries on here. Check out my, Oven Baked Potato Wedges, Baked Jicama Fries and my Jamaican Jerk Butternut Squash Fries, so yummy!
For most of my pregnancy with Daevyd I was on a raw foods diet, but towards the end, I ate cooked foods. I loved to prepare oven fries with cashew cheese sauce and to this day Daevyd loves when I prepare them.
I loved to grow my own zucchini and share with friends, however, since moving to Florida my lifestyle has changed so much that I don't have the time to grow my own produce plus the soil here is sandy. However, we do have a mini orchard with citrus, olive, pomegranate, loquat.
This winter has been brutal here in Florida and from what I realize, we have lost our guava tree, papaya, moringa and soursop, fig and I have a strong feeling that our pomegranate tree has succumbed to the winter artic black.
