Zucchini Coins

Finding healthy food the boys like is not easy. I feel fortunate that they are not picky eaters, but it is still a challenge. I recently found a recipe for baked zucchini coins that they just devour. I'll admit they're not overly quick to make, but if you make a big batch they are easy to pull out of the fridge and throw on a plate. And - they are really really good! (serious - even Ben likes them!)

Fresh zucchini

The assembly line: flour, egg, and the panko mixture


Here's the recipe (I found this on Weelicious).

Baked Zucchini Coins (Serves 4)

1/2 Cup Whole Wheat Panko or Bread Crumbs

1/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese, grated

1/2 Tsp Salt

1/2 Tsp Garlic Powder

1 Large Egg

1/4 Cup Flour

2 Medium Zucchini, cut into 1/4 inch coins

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees and coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

2. Mix the first 4 ingredients in a bowl.

3. Whisk the egg in a separate bowl.

4. Place the flour in another bowl.

5. Make an assembly line with the bowls, and first dip the zucchini coins into the

flour, then the egg and finally into the bread crumb mixture, coating evenly and repeating with all the zucchini coins.

6. Place all of the coins on the baking sheet/rack. Arrange so they’re not touching, spray with oil and bake for 20 minutes or until the

bread crumbs are golden.

7. Serve.

Zucchini makes your hair grow! Did you know that?!
(I may have made that up!)
