  • 1 cup finely crushed oats
  • 1/3 cup parmesan
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon parsley flakes
  • ½ teaspoon ground sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground peppercorn
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup 2% milk
  • 1 pound zucchini, cut into wedges
  • olive oil cooking spray

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes


  1. Preheat oven to 450°.
  2. Have your child help with mixing. In a medium bowl, mix together crispy oats, parmesan, garlic powder, onion powder, parsley, salt and pepper.
  3. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together eggs and milk.
  4. Have your child help with breading the zucchini. Add zucchini to the egg and milk mixture and toss until well coated.
  5. Working in batches, remove zucchini from egg mixture and place directly into the crispy oat mixture. Toss until well coated and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet, skin side down.
  6. Use the cooking spray to lightly coat the breaded zucchini. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until lightly golden brown.
  7. Serve immediately on their own or with your favorite marinara sauce.
