Real Healthy Zucchini Sticks

All the yumminess without the guilt

Since I decided to change my eating habits from the Standard American Diet (SAD) to the Real Healthy Recipes Diet (HAPPY!) I’ve found some things easier than others to give up. I have zero interest in candy, chips and crackers, bread, and pastries, but put a plate of sweet potato fries or zucchini sticks in front of me and I will go to town on it. Obviously breaded and fried zucchini is NOT healthy, so this recipe is my way of curing that craving without any guilt 🙂

Real Healthy Zucchini Sticks

INGREDIENTS
Serves 6

  • 1 Tablespoon coconut oil
  • 5 organic zucchini
  • 2 organic, free range eggs
  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • 1 Tablespoon dried parsley
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a cookie sheet with the coconut oil.
  2. Wash zucchini and cut into french fry sized sticks.
  3. In a shallow bowl, wide enough for the sticks to fit across, whisk the eggs.
  4. In another shallow bowl, wide enough for the sticks to fit across, combine the flour, parsley, garlic powder and salt.
  5. Coat each stick in the egg, then dredge in flour mixture. Place on the cookie sheet.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes. Change the oven to broil. After 5 minutes flip the sticks over and broil for another 5 minutes.
  7. *Tip For Best Zucchini Sticks: Use very little of the flour mixture — just enough to cover the surface, but not caked on. Allow to get very crispy before removing from oven.

    I see that there is a sauce on the plate with these. What is that sauce? Or is there another sauce that you recommend to go with these?

      Hi Kristin,
      That’s my Lazy Man’s Ranch dressing, which is dairy-free, made with coconut milk. The recipe is posted above on this page. Enjoy 🙂
