Do you like fries? Can you think of a healthy way to enjoy them? Well, this recipe will show you how this is possible. Zucchini is a savior when you are going on a keto diet. You can make so many different things with it.
Today we will be making zucchini fries coated with almond flour. It’s a good low-carb alternative to fries.
There are a few things wrong with traditional fries. First, they are made from potatoes, which contain too many carbs to be eaten on a keto diet.
Additionally, many fries are fried in highly inflammatory vegetable oils, such as canola oil. If you get your fries at a fast food restaurant, then they may even contain gluten as they share a fryer with other foods.
Overall, fries tend to be very calorie-dense and nutrient-poor, which is the perfect combination for weight gain.
On the other hand, zucchini is much lower in carbs, and it’s more nutrient dense than white potatoes. This makes it an excellent replacement for fries.
We use almond flour and eggs to coat our fries. This gives the fries a nice crunch while keeping the calories and carbs to a minimum.
This recipe will give you an enjoyable and delicious snack that you can share with your friends. You can make this for those movie nights at home instead of popcorn.
You can serve these fries with homemade ketchup.
