Great recipe and the sticks were delicious. Make sure you spray the zucchini for nice golden brown and crisy sticks. I also agree that you should shake them in a ziploc bag for even coating.
Oven-Fried Zucchini Sticks
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.

I had great success with this recipe and even managed to get the coating to brown and stick nicely. I followed the directions, making sure to give a healthy coating (ha ha) of the canola oil and then set them to bake as directed. At the end of their baking time I added another spray of oil to the tops of the sticks and then set the oven to broil for 3-5 minutes and everything became a nice golden brown :)
I used liquid egg whites to coat the zucchini and the batter stuck very well. However, I had the same problem as others with getting the coating to brown. I thought about trying more oil on top but I didn't want to negate the healthy aspect of them. Very tasty when dipped in a little ranch dressing!
Easy, delicious. A new family favorite. Would definitely be a 5 if I could figure out how to get the coating to crunch just right. The best way to coat is to throw everything into a ziploc-type bag and shake. Try a sprinkle of parmesan as they come out of the oven. Yum!
These tasted fantastic!! However, they weren't perfect. I had a bit of a time getting the breading to completely cover the zucchini. But this is a cosmetic issue to me, the flavor and taste was great! Next time I may try placing the sticks on a cooling rack over a sheet pan in the oven to bake.
