Toddler Tuesday: Baked Parmesan Zucchini Coins


A tasty veggie snack


  • 1 medium zucchini, sliced thinly
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup whole grain bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup flour (I used whole wheat)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and lightly oil a baking sheet.
  2. Get three small bowls and set up your station:  In one bowl, beat your egg.  In another bowl, add the flour. In the third bowl, mix the bread crumbs and cheese.
  3. First, dip a coin in the egg and turn it to coat it on all sides.  Then, coat it with flour.  Follow this by another dip in the egg bowl, and finish with a coating of the bread/cheese mixture.  Place on the tray and continue until you have all your coins coated.  It’s helpful to have a paper towel nearby as your hands will get sticky.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes and allow to cool before serving.
