These easy, healthy Air Fryer Zucchini Fries are served with a delicious spiced yogurt dipping sauce! The perfect side dish, appetizer or snack these easy zucchini fries also happen to be paleo, gluten-free and dairy-free – they’re also perfect for your next Whole30!
FRYDAY just got a little better with these Air Fryer Zucchini Fries. I mean, not much can beat a French Fry but I’ll tell ya, these are delicious and they are a great way to use that zucchini that you have in the fridge. This time of year is a great time to pick up zucchini at the store. It not only is in season but it’s a great price and can be used in so many different ways!
Oh, & I mentioned that these zucchini fries are Whole30 friendly (so obviously paleo too), gluten-free and if you use vegan yogurt in the dip, dairy-free too, right?
This time of year is also a great time to take advantage of all the zucchini recipes since they are in season and delicious right now! I personally love to use it in a sauté, in omelets, in a one pan meal, into “boats” and you name it! Seriously so many options.
Also, can we take a minute to appreciate the air fryer!? I mean this thing is seriously a GAME CHANGER – I throw everything in mine and it makes your life even better when you don’t feel like cooking but want to make something. I use this one!
Can I make the dipping sauce in advance?
Yes! What’s a fry without a dipping sauce right!? I paired these with my Southwestern Creamy Sauce. It’s perfect because it’s creamy but still has a little kick to it! If you want to make this sauce, here’s what you need:
1/2 cup Siggi’s plain yogurt (or any plain Greek yogurt, or coconut / soy yogurt for a vegan recipe), 1 tbsp olive oil, juice of 1 lime, a minced garlic clove, 2 tbsp sriracha, and 1/4 tsp each of chili powder, cumin, sweet paprika, salt and pepper.
All you have to do is mix everything together & keep it in the fridge until you’re ready to make the zucchini fries, or for up to 3 days!

- 2 small zucchini
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp chili powder
- 1/4 tsp onion powder
- 1/4 tsp oregano
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- Make two bowls: one with egg mixture and another one with almond flour and spice mix.
- Cut zucchini into smaller “fry” pieces. I cut the zucchini in half and then pieces from that.
- Roll a piece into the egg mix and then flour mix. Set aside.
- Place in air fryer with enough space apart - for nice crispy fries it’s important they aren’t touching!
- Bake at 400 for 11-12 minutes.
- Serve with dipping sauce of choice!
