  • Breading options: To keep these zucchini fries low carb and keto, opt-in for almond flour and avoid breadcrumbs. If you are not doing keto, go ahead and replace the almond flour with panko bread crumbs. They are light and airy and will make the zucchini fries super crispy. 

 

  • To make in oven: Follow the recipe as instructed and bake for 30 minutes in a 425F preheated oven or until golden and crispy. Check out the oven baked version here.

How to Make Crispy Zucchini Fries in Air Fryer

 

 

Advertisement
  • Breading: We adore using a blend of almond flour and freshly grated parmesan cheese for low-carb and keto diets. The combination is ideal for making really crispy zucchini fries. Panko bread crumbs are a great addition to non-keto diets. They are incredibly crispy and light, and you must taste them.

 

  • Cooking: Make sure your air fryer isn’t too full to avoid getting uniformly crispy zucchini fries. Fill the air fryer with as many zucchini fries as you can without them overlapping.

  • Seasoning: These breadcrumbs taste great with just a little salt and pepper, but if you want to add even more flavor, we strongly advise adding some heat! These fries will taste even better if you add a teaspoon or two of your preferred spice blend—Italian, taco, ranch, or Cajun—to the breading mixture!
