“Our oven-baked zucchini sticks taste every bit as good as their deep-fried brethren with only a fraction of the fat and calories. Serve with a side of your favorite marinara sauce for dipping.”


    • Canola or olive oil cooking spray
    • ½ cup whole-wheat flour
    • ½ cup all-purpose flour
    • 2 tablespoons cornmeal
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • ½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    • 1½ pounds zucchini, (about 3 medium), cut into ½-by-3-inch sticks
    • 2 large egg whites, lightly beaten


  • 1 Preheat oven to 475°F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • 2 Combine flours, cornmeal, salt and pepper in a large sealable plastic bag. Dip zucchini in egg white, shake in the bag to coat, and arrange, not touching, on the baking sheet. Coat all exposed sides with cooking spray.
  • 3 Bake on the center rack for 10 minutes. Turn the zucchini and coat any floury spots with cooking spray. Continue to bake until golden and just tender, about 8 to 10 minutes more. Serve hot.
  • Easy cleanup: Recipes that require cooking spray can leave behind a sticky residue that can be hard to clean. To save time and keep your baking sheet looking fresh, line it with a layer of foil before you apply the cooking spray.
