Almond Crusted Baked Zucchini Fries

Have you ever had those crispy fried zucchini fries at restaurants? They are delicious, and of course, most of the time NOT gluten-free. I obviously haven’t had them in years, so I decided it was time to create a gluten-free and healthier version for us.

Almond Crusted Baked Zucchini Fries

These zucchini fries are so simple, and come together pretty quickly. They are perfect to serve as an appetizer with a dipping sauce, or as a side dish with chicken or fish. They have a light and crispy almond flour coating, which gives them a really great texture when you bake them to golden brown perfection.

All you need to do is coat them in the egg, dip them in the almond flour, and bake them until they are brown and crispy! This is the perfect summer dish that your family will love, even the kiddos!

Almond Crusted Baked Zucchini Fries

Servings 4


  • 3 large zucchini
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 tsp paprika (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 large eggs


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  • In a small bowl, whisk the eggs and set aside. In another bowl, whisk together the almond flour, paprika, salt and pepper and set aside. 
  • Cut the ends off of the zucchini and then cut them in half. Quarter each half lengthwise so that they are the shape of fries.
  • Use one hand to toss a piece of zucchini in the egg, making sure it is coated. Shake off the excess and use your other hand to toss the egg-coated piece in the flour until completely coated. Shake off the excess and place on a baking sheet. Repeat with the rest of the zucchini slices.  
  • Once all zucchini are coated in egg and flour, arrange them on a baking sheet so that they have a little bit of room in between them, this will help them to brown. 
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown on the outside. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce!
