Zucchini Fritter Recipe
Patties made from zucchini are almost like potato patties, except they are so much healthier! Low carb and so simple to make! And you don’t have to worry about going off your diet like you would with the high carb potato alternative.
They are a great side dish to any meal and they also make a yummy keto friendly snack. Great for summertime when you have a lot of zucchini around and you can buy it for next to nothing at the farmer’s market. I actually enjoy these year round because they taste so good! They turn out nice and crispy on the outside and full of flavor on the inside. I sometimes like to dip them in some ranch dressing and that tastes amazing!
Feel free to add anything you like to these! You can also use onion and cauliflower in your mixture if you like. The onion gives a great flavor and the cauliflower will make them seem more like potato patties. There are also lots of spices you could add. This is a great recipe for a guideline that you can easily make your own if you like your foods spicy!
You can also bake these in the oven if you like very easily as an alternative to frying. To bake, preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place parchment paper on a baking pan. Scoop the batter using an ice cream scoop or 2 spoons, place on prepared baking sheet and flatten with the back of the spoon. Bake for 10 minutes, flip and bake the other side for another 10 minutes. They turn out great this way too!
