  • Yield: 50 1x


  • 3 medium zucchinis, sliced lengthwise into fries (should yield around 50 pieces)
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil (or any lighter oil)
  • 1 c. gluten-free panko crumbs, slightly crushed
  • 1/2 c. hemp seeds
  • 2 Tbsp. dry quinoa


  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a shallow dish, whisk together the gf panko crumbs, hemp seeds and dry quinoa. Set aside.
  3. Place the sliced zucchinis into a large bowl and drizzle in the oil, gently massaging it into the zucchini until all pieces are coated.
  4. Taking a few zucchini sticks at a time, place into the shallow dish and completely coat with the crumb mixture on all sides.
  5. Place on the baking sheet. You will probably need to do this in 2 batches total.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes and then turn the sheet to the other side. Bake another 10 minutes or until golden brown.
