Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F/200°C.
  • Cut eggplant into thin fry like sticks. The thinner they are the crispier they will get.
  • Put eggplant pieces in a deep bowl and sprinkle with oil or veggie broth, salt, pepper, paprika and maple syrup. Mix to coat.
  • Place almond flour in another bowl or dish. In small handfuls, put eggplant pieces in bowl and toss to coat well.
  • Place on a baking sheet covered with parchment and bake for 35-45 minutes, depending on thickness, or until golden brown. Make sure they don't overlap to assure the most crispy result.
  • Serve with your favorite dip.

Notes

  • You can sub another flour for almond to make this nut free.
  • I removed some of the outer skin to take out some of the bitterness. The touch of maple syrup helps with this too.
