Healthy Baked Parmesan Zucchini Fries Recipe

Healthy Baked Parmesan Zucchini Fries Recipe - These are so good, not "crispy" becuase they're healthy but still tasty. There's no bread crumbs so they're a little healthier than most zucchini fries recipes and less crispy. If you want them crispy and not keto, add bread crumbs to the coating, then spray the outside before baking.
