Baked Zucchini Sticks – Grow. Eat. $ave.

I do believe I have a new favorite snack.

And I do believe that the boys have a new favorite snack!

And what perfect timing…it’s about to be high season for zucchinis…when the farmers will practically be giving them away at the markets. Next time I pick up one of the monster zucchinis for $1, I’ll be sure to grab two…so I can make a couple batches of these delicious, and healthy, vegetable snacks.

They’d make a perfect side dish for grilled chicken too!

Cut into sticks.

Mix up the bread crumbs, garlic powder, onion powder, kosher salt and pepper. Also, mix in the Parmesan (I left this out for the boys dairy free diet.)

Whisk together 2 eggs. Set up a dipping station nearby a baking sheet.

Lay them all out. Bake. Flip. Bake.
