Step 1

Wash, dry and slice the zucchini into French fry sticks, about ½-inch thick and 4-inches long.

Step 2

In a shallow bowl, whisk together the flour, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, salt and pepper.

Step 3

In a second shallow bowl, whisk eggs together until homogenous.

Step 4

Toss the zucchini in the flour mixture, shaking off the excess.

Step 5

Dip the flour coated zucchini in the egg mixture, drip off any excess.

Step 6

Toss the egg coated zucchini to the panko mixture, covering it thoroughly. Set aside and repeat with the remaining zucchini.

Step 7

Spray the inside of the air fryer basket with cooking spray and arrange the zucchini fries in a single layer, leaving a little space between each fry. Air fry the zucchini at 400°F until golden brown and crispy, between 8-10 minutes. Repeat with the remaining zucchini.

Step 8

Serve warm alone or with a dipping sauce of your choice. Enjoy!
