Course: Appetizer, Side Dish
Servings: 4 -6


  • 1 cup almond meal/flour
  • 1/2 cup grated pecorino romano cheese or parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 t garlic powder
  • 1/4 t onion powder
  • 1/2 T Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 t ground black pepper
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1 to 1 1/2 lbs zucchini cleaned & dried
  • 2 T olive oil


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cover a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, add the almond meal/flour, cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning, black pepper & salt. Stir to combine. Set aside.
  • Quarter the zucchinis into 4-inch long and 1/4-inch thick sticks.
  • In a large bowl, add the zucchini sticks. Pour in the olive oil and toss to coat the zucchini sticks.

  • Enjoy!
