Baked Courgette Fries | Slimming World Friendly Recipe

These fries are amazingly crispy and healthy and no one would believe they were baked. They are perfectly healthy but that doesn’t mean they are not tasty. Easy to make, full of speed food and even the kiddos will love them too. This unofficial recipe is perfect for any one following Slimming World, Weight Watchers or a calorie controlled diet.

When I first served these fries no one would believe I hadn’t fried them! Nope, honestly I didn’t even air fry them. They are 100% baked in the oven and taste fantastic. I am constantly on the hunt for recipes that are made from speed foods. Rather than just removing half of my meal and adding a salad, I prefer to create from speed food if possible. Who’s with me on that? 

These baked courgette fries (or Zucchini for my lovely American followers) are the perfect side dish to so many meals. If you have kiddos who are not into their veg (or a fussy husband) these fries are the perfect way to disguise a pretty unappetising looking vegetable.

    Could you use normal breadcrumbs (using healthy extra b) or would that not work as well?

      I made these using wholemeal breadcrumbs and they were definitely not as appetising.. but give them a go were all different 🙂
