Simple Super Bowl Snacks - Volume Two!

As we go to press, the Super Bowl Battle will begin in just 3 days, 21 hours, 58 minutes and 21 seconds! Here is yet another recipe for some healthier options for snacks on this fun and friend filled day!

Oven-Fried Zucchini Sticks

6 Servings

Canola oil cooking spray
1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons cornmeal
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 1/2 pounds zucchini (about 3 medium), cut into 1/2-by-3-inch sticks
2 ounces Eggology Egg Whites, lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

Combine flours, cornmeal, salt and pepper in a large sealable plastic bag. Dip zucchini in egg white, shake in the bag to coat, and arrange, not touching, on the baking sheet. Coat all exposed sides with cooking spray.

Bake on the center rack for 7 minutes. Turn the zucchini and coat any floury spots with cooking spray. Continue to bake until golden and just tender, about 5 minutes more. Serve hot.

These yummy treats boast low calories (only 108 per serving), no fat and taste GREAT! Enjoy!

Helpful Hint: If you are only occassionally using Eggology Egg Whites, you can freeze them so that you have the convenience and goodness of organic Eggology Egg Whites whenever you need them!
