Keto Air Fryer Zucchini Fries

If you just bought a new air fryer and looking to try some delicious air fryer recipes and you’re on the keto diet then we have got just the recipe for you. The Keto Air Fryer Zucchini Fries in under 15 minutes!

Zucchini fries are a pretty delicious and low-carb alternative to potato fries and we know that everyone just love fries. A cup of zucchini is only 3g net carbs so these will keep your morale high if you’re on a low carb or keto diet. So these are guilt-free and will be made in no time thanks to an air fryer.
How to Make These Fries in Air Fryer
Breading: We prefer using a mixture of almond flour and freshly grated parmesan cheese for people who are on a low carb/Keto diet. The mixture is perfect and makes super crispy fries. Panko bread crumbs work wonders for people who are not on a keto diet. It’s not only super light but crispy and are a must try.

Cooking:

Be sure not to over-crowd your air fryer if you want to get perfectly crispy zucchini fries all around. It would be much better if you place as many zucchini fries as you can into the air-fryer without overlapping.

Seasoning:

The breadcrumbs are delicious with just a pinch of salt and pepper. We highly suggest spicing things up! So if you want these fries to take to the next level then add a teaspoon or two of your personal favorite spice blend (ranch, Cajun, Italian, taco) to the mixture!

How to make These fries in the oven

These fries are not only delicious but quick too but you can also bake them in the oven. To bake in the oven, simply at 425F place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 25-30 mins until the fries are crispy and golden.
