Garden Fresh and Crunchy: Baked Zucchini Sticks

By on 08/20/2018

Instead of grabbing a bag of chips, snack on these tasty baked zucchini sticks. Panko bread crumbs give them a nice crunch without frying.


  • eggs
  • cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • tsp dried oregano or 2 tsp chopped fresh
  • tsp dried thyme or 2 tsp chopped fresh
  • tsp dried basil or 2 tsp chopped fresh
  • tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Black pepper to taste
  • medium zucchini
  • Low-fat Ranch dressing for dipping (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 425°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly coat with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a bowl, beat the eggs. In another bowl, mix bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, oregano, thyme, basil, garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste.
  • Cut zucchini in half lengthwise, then slice into 4″ x 1/2″-inch sticks.
  • Dip the zucchini sticks into the egg and then into the bread crumb mixture. Arrange in a single layer on the baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, or until softened. Place under broiler for 5 minutes, or until slightly browned. Serve with Ranch dressing, if desired.
