Crispy Baked Keto Zucchini Fries with Lemon Aioli
Your whole family will love these Keto zucchini fries, whether they are low carb or not! We all thought they were the perfect snack, but they would make a wonderful appetizer or side dish, too. Seriously crispy and not soggy at all, thanks to plenty of recipe testing and my secret crunchy coating hack! Oh, and eating with your hands is absolutely mandatory :).
- 1/3 cup keto mayonnaise
- 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp lemon zest
- 1 small clove garlic minced
- 1/8 tsp salt or to taste
- 1/8 tsp cracked black pepper or to taste
- Optional 1 tablespoon fresh parsley chopped
Preheat the oven to 425F / 220C / 200C fan.
Remove the ends from the zucchinis and slice into 1.5 - 2cm fries.
Line three baking trays with parchment.
Whisk the eggs with a fork and place in one shallow bowl. In the second bowl, mix the almond flour, ground flax, garlic powder, parmesan, seasoning and optional Italian herbs.
Dip each courgette/zucchini fry in egg, shake off the excess then dip into the ‘breadcrumb’ mix. Do this in small batches of 3 - 4 fries at a time to prevent too much clumping.
Place on baking tray and repeat until all the fries are used up. Depending on the size of your trays, you'll need 2 or 3 trays. Drizzle with olive oil or generously spray. Bake for about 25 minutes until crisp, turning after 20 minutes.
Meanwhile make the lemon aioli. To do this simply whisk all the ingredients together until combined. This can be stored in a sealable glass jar or airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
Remove the keto zucchini fries from the oven and allow to cool slightly to crisp up and serve with lemon aioli or your favourite dip.
