Chop the basil. Cut the zucchinis into sticks, about 3/8 of an inch thick and 3 inches long.
Crack the eggs into a shallow bowl and whisk to get an egg mixture.
Put the breadcrumbs, grated parmesan cheese, chopped basil, oregano, garlic powder, and salt in a bowl. Mix with a spoon to get a dry mixture.
Spray a baking sheet with 1 tbsp of cooking spray.
Dip the zucchini sticks into the egg mixture and then into the dry mixture and place on the baking sheet. Coat with 1 tbsp of cooking spray.
Preheat the oven to 400°F for 18 minutes.
Place the baking sheet in a hot oven and bake for 8 minutes to get semi-baked zucchini fingers. Then remove the baking sheet from the oven.
Flip the semi-baked zucchini fingers with a spatula.
Return the baking sheet to the oven and bake for 8 minutes.
Turn off the heat and remove the baking sheet from the oven.
