  • 1 cup whole wheat panko or bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • green beans, cut into bite size pieces (about 2-3 inches long)
  • cooking oil spray
  • Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce:
  • 1/4 cup mustard (yellow or Dijon)
  • 1 tablespoon honey


1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees and coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

2. Mix the first 3 ingredients in a bowl.

3. Whisk the egg in a separate bowl.

4. Place the flour in another bowl.

5. Make an assembly line with the three bowls, first dipping the green beans into the flour, then the egg and finally into the bread crumb mixture, coating the beans evenly and repeating with the remainder of the beans.

6. Place all of the coated green beans on the baking sheet or on a rack above a baking sheet. Arrange beans so that they’re not touching, spray with oil and bake for 30 minutes or until the bread crumbs are golden.

7. Serve with dipping sauce.

To make the dipping sauce: combine ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine well.

* If freezing, after step 5 place on a baking sheet and freeze for 30 minutes. Remove and place in a Ziploc bag, label with the date and name of the recipe, and freeze. When you’re ready to eat – take them out of the freezer and put them in the oven, adding at least another 3-5 minutes to the baking time.
