Ingredients

  • 1 pound zucchini about 2 large
  • 1 cup finely ground almond flour
  • 1 cup finely grated parmesan
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • Avocado oil for cooking

Instructions

  • Trim the ends off the zucchini. Cut it in half crosswise and then in half lengthwise. Cut each piece into 4 sticks. (If there are large seeds, you can trim them off.)
  • In a shallow dish, stir together the almond flour, parmesan, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper.
  • In a separate shallow dish, beat the eggs.
  • Dip the zucchini in the eggs, and then coat with the breading. Use your hands to press the breading into the zucchini.

Keto Air Fryer Zucchini Fries

  • Preheat the air fryer to 350° F.
  • Spray the zucchini with oil.
  • Cooking in batches, arrange the zucchini in a single layer in your air fryer. If desired, you can use air fryer liners.
  • Cook for 12 to 16 minutes, until golden brown.

Baking

  • Preheat the oven to 400° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Arrange the zucchini in a single layer, being careful not to overcrowd them.
  • Spray with oil.
  • Lower the oven temperature to 350° F. Cook for 15 to 20 minutes, until crisp.

Frying

  • Fill a large skillet with olive oil to ½ inch.
  • Heat the oil until it reaches 350° F.
  • Cook the zucchini in batches for about 2 ½ minutes, or until it is golden brown.
