Do you like zucchini like me?! Is your garden overgrown with zucchini and you need another recipe to try?! Well, let me steer you in the right direction! These baked zucchini spears are salty, savory and a perfect side to any meal! Ready?! Let’s do this!

I went the easy route and used a gallon size plastic zipped bag to mix my ingredients and coat the zucchini spears. It makes cleanup super easy and you can wash and reuse it if you so choose ♻️😊

Here are the coated zucchini spears ready for the oven. I love seeing those bits of parsley from the Italian seasoned bread crumbs. It’s pretty easy to find gluten free bread crumbs now as well.

Look at those beautiful brown bits of crunchy, glorious parmesan bread crumbs! Are these mushy?! Well, it is zucchini after all, but the coating is crispy. If these sit too long, the coating will also get mushy. I recommend you serve them immediately after they are done cooking in the oven.

Now you have a healthier parmesan breaded zucchini spears! Enjoy! See you all in the next recipe!
