I myself prefer not to taste coconut in anything so I used the refined coconut oil, whereas my wife Courtney can eat the virgin coconut oil without an issue. It’s really a personal preference. Some people may not even notice, but I can notice right away, even in the most flavorful food.
Don’t get me wrong, I love coconut, but I prefer my food that shouldn’t taste like a coconut not taste like a coconut. For my palate, it’s very overpowering and I prefer to enjoy the other flavors.
Another great option is our eggplant parmesan recipe and zucchini bites. If you really love zucchini you’ll love this vegetarian penne pasta recipe!
They’re great dipped in marinara too. In fact, you could even dip the zucchini fries into marinara sauce. When Courtney made these we gobbled them up before they even had a chance to really cool off. They’re that good.

The problem I had with this recipe is after submerging the zucchini in the egg, I could not get the breadcrumbs to stick to it. They just clumped then fell off
So sorry you had an issue!
Try to make sure that there isn’t too much egg on the zucchini. We use panko which is super light, did you try that? Here’s a video without the flour. 🙂 https://www.facebook.com/knowyourproduce/videos/952642141579467/
These look SOOOOO GOOD! Can’t wait to faceplant into a tray!
Thank you! I’ve been known to do this everytime we get fresh zucchini at the market, ha! 🙂
The recipe calls for spraying with olive oil (It looks like after it bakes)? I don’t see this step in the video?
Spraying with oil before baking or frying in oil is optional. 🙂
