Baked Zucchini Fries

Posted on

 

These baked zucchini fries are ultra cheesy and flavorful with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and an Italian spice blend. They’re also gluten-free, low-carb and keto-friendly for a delicious, healthy snack recipe.

It’s zucchini season! One of my favorite seasons of the year because I’m slightly obsessed with all things zucchini.

As a gluten-free gal, zucchini is my “go to” when I’m look for a pasta replacement or even tortilla replacement. It’s such a versatile vegetable
