It’s zucchini season and what better way to use up this garden veggie than to make fried zucchini! These Keto Fried Zucchini Chips are super tasty, gluten-free, and perfect for sharing…or not, we won’t judge ????

Chips or fries?

You can easily make these zucchini chips into zucchini fries! Instead of slicing the zucchini into rounds, simply cut it into fry shapes. The method and the bake time will be the same.

A note on air-frying

Can these Keto Fried Zucchini Chips be made in an air-fryer? Probably, but we haven’t tested it. If you do, please leave your results in the comments below!

Ingredients in this Keto Fried Zucchini Recipe

  • 3 large zucchini, cut into ¼” rounds
  • 1 cup Bob’s Red Mill Super-Fine Almond Flour – this is our go-to almond flour as it’s blanched and very finely ground so it sticks really well for breading!
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese – regular or vegan, for a vegan option we like VioLife
  • 1 cup unsweetened plain almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch – this affects the net carbs a very negligible amount and you’ll even have some of the slurry mixture left over.
  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt (or garlic powder + sea salt)
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • Cooking spray (or avocado oil if frying and not baking)
  • Marinara, for serving – be sure to opt for a sugar-free kind or make your own!

How to make this recipe

  1. Preheat oven to 425° F and spray a cast-iron sheet pan with cooking spray.
  2. Place the Bob’s Red Mill Almond Flour on a plate. Mix in the parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, and garlic salt. In a shallow bowl, whisk together the almond milk and cornstarch.
  3. Dip each piece of squash into the flour mixture then dunk into the almond milk then dredge through the flour again. Carefully place each piece onto the sheet pan in a single layer. Spray the tops with cooking spray and transfer to the oven.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes, broiling for the last 2-3 to reach a golden color. Remove from oven and serve immediately with warm marinara.
