Crispy Oven-Baked Zoodles to Make with you KIDS

I love cooking with my 4 year old more than anything. Explaining how food works, the different tastes and how they interact, the science behind it, and having her fully engaged with me lights my heart of fire.

This is a perfect recipe to make with your kids because they get to do everything, they will add one of their favorite ingredients, and they will eat their veggies!

Ingredients

  • 1 or 2 zucchinis
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup honey nut Cheerios
  • 1-2 tbsp honey

Supplies

  • 2 paper towels
  • 2 bowls
  • 1 zoodler
  • 1 sheet pan
  • tin foil
  • 2 zipper baggies
  • 1 rolling pin
  • 1 basting brush

What to do:

Preheat over to 450 F. Crack one egg into bowl and beat with a fork until yolk is mixed with eggwhite. Zoodle your zucchini. Place zoodled zucchini into empty bowl and press firmly with paper towels until moisture is absorbed and veggies are dry. Place Cheerios in zipper baggie, press all air out and seal. Smash all Cheerios until tiny crumbs. Next pour egg into other baggie and add zucchini. Shake until well coated. With a fork, transfer the zucchini (make sure to allow excess egg to drip off) into Cheerio bag. Shake until well coated.

Line sheet pan with tin foil and rub foil with 1 tbsp olive oil to prevent sticking. Spead Cheerio-coated zucchini on tin foil evenly.

Place in 450F oven for 8 minutes until golden brown. With basting brush brush the zucchini  evenly with honey, turn oven to broil and cook 2-4 more minutes!

Enjoy!

I'm a mom of two wonderfully wild kiddos with more personality than my heart has room for! I'm a runner, a coach and try to find a healthy balance in my life with gummy bears and green veggies. I try to see the positive in all situations and absolutely abhor complaining (its exhausting). Be happy and be kind (to others and yourself).
