Ingredients

  • 1 medium zucchini
  • 5 eggs (large)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese (or Parmesan)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degree F. Coat an 8x8-inch pan with nonstick cooking spray and line with parchment paper. (The parchment paper makes it easy to slice.)
  • Cut the stems off the zucchini. Grate the zucchini with a box grater or a food processor. Place onto a clean kitchen towel and squeeze as much liquid out as you can. Discard the liquid (or use in a cocktail for yourself). Measure out 1 cup tightly packed grated zucchini.
  • Add the zucchini to a medium bowl with the remaining ingredients. Stir well to make a uniform batter. Pour into the prepared baking pan and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden brown and the top is firm and set.
  • Remove from the oven, cool, then remove from the pan to slice into sticks or squares using a serrated knife.

Notes

  • Once cooled, store in an airtight container lined with a paper towel (to absorb excess moisture) in the fridge for up to 5 days. Or freeze in a freezer bag with as much air removed as possible for up to 3 months. Warm in 15-second increments in the microwave.
  • Use yellow summer squash instead of zucchini if preferred.
  • Use dairy-free shredded cheese as needed.
  • Use a cup-for-cup gluten-free flour blend in place of the all-purpose as needed.
  • Add 1 teaspoon cumin, chili powder, or Italian seasoning for more flavor.
  • Serve with guacamole, ketchup, sour cream, salsa, or another favorite dip if desired.
