I love these!  Every year I grow zucchini in the garden and I try to find creative ways to use it up!  My girls don’t actually like zucchini however, when I made this they couldn’t eat enough! Now they actually request these oven baked zucchini fries!

Chipotle mayo is the perfect dipper for these… but if you prefer ranch or warm marinara are great choices too! These are also perfect if you’re watching your waistline since they’re oven baked!  All of the flavor and crunch without the fat or grease!

These are fairly simple to make…  the batch you see here I actually made myself for lunch one day!  Both tasty and satisfying, these are perfect as a snack or a side dish!
