Oven Baked Eggplant Fries

These oven-baked eggplant fries are gluten-free and slightly crispy, perfect for your little ones to grasp and flavorful thanks to the almond flour breading and dried herbs.

Oven Baked Eggplant Fries

These eggplant fries were a hit with Luca! He loved them and it made me so happy, because they’re so easy to whip up, they include key allergens (nuts and egg) and they save well.

I love serving these with a ‘dip’ (which is great for feeding and occupational development!) like hummus or a marinara sauce. Even a tahini would be great!

The breading is simple – egg wash, dip in almond flour seasoned with dried herbs, and then put the eggplant sticks in a skillet with olive oil and cook them until the eggplant is fork tender and the sticks are browned!

Easy as that! I love serving these Italian style, so with a pasta and another veggie with some melted cheese for extra fats!

How would you serve these?
