Keto Zucchini Fritters Ingredients
  • 2 medium Zucchini (between 200-250g/8-9oz each)

How to make Keto Zucchini Fritters
  1. Grate the zucchini into a brand-new dishcloth or muslin cloth and squeeze out as much liquid as possible.
  2. Mix the drained zucchini, parmesan, almond flour, eggs, salt, and pepper together in a bowl and sit for a couple of minutes. This lets the almond meal soak up some liquid and prevents the fritter from tasting dry and grainy.
  3. Pour oil into a non-stick frying pan over medium heat and scoop 1/4 cup of the fritter mix into the hot oil, pushing them gently into a flattened, round shape. Depending on the size of your pan, you may need to cook these in a couple of batches.
  4. After 2-3 minutes, gently flip the fritters over, remembering to flip them away from you to prevent the oil from splashing.
  5. The fritters will be cooked through after another 2-3 minutes. Remove from the pan and enjoy.
  6. Top with sour cream and chopped parsley, if desired!

    OMG! These are like hashbrowns, or crunchy potatoes. I’m in love. The only problem will be trying not to eat to many!

  2. These were so yummy and hit the spot for something crunchy and nutritious, you can’t always get crunchy things on keto! I also added some chopped up scallions as well. Ups the carbs a bit, but makes them super savory and reminds me of scallion pancakes.

  3. Why in the world are you listing ingredients in this recipes in ounces?????? instead of our common measuring tools are like… cup, tablespoons etc. Is it common where you live to have a food scale and guess, add and subtract until you reach the right amount of ounces?

    Reply
    • Hi Cole,

      There are a few reasons why I use weights rather than cups – firstly, cup and tablespoon sizes are not standard throughout the world whereas an ounce is an ounce regardless of where you are. Secondly, the way people choose to fill their cups, mostly with dry ingredients (scooping, spooning, packing), differs greatly, which means that sometimes there will be too much ingredients for some and others not enough, causing the recipe to fail.

      Where the cup volume does not affect the outcome of the recipe, I always use cups and where it does, I will always use ounces.

      My goal is for each recipe to come out in your home, the way it does in my kitchen, hence why using ounces is important.

      I hope that helps 🙂

    Just made and ate these fritters. Didn’t have a squash but I did have kale. I chopped it up, drained it and added it to the other ingredients. My husband and I enjoyed them with a little hot sauce. YUM!

  5. I’m a total “Dory” and threw the olive oil into the mix (intstead of the pan) LOL. To my surprise it still came out really good! I used zuchinni from my garden and I was told that they tend to have more water than zuchinni from the grocery store. My only suggestion would for those using home grown zuchinni is once it’s shredded let it sit in a strainer for a little while. I used quite a few paper towels to soak up the water and it still wasn’t enough. Thanks for the recipe! Will be making again 🙂

    • Hi April,

      Oh dear, that is a bit of a “Dory” moment, and that sounds like a really juicy zucchini you’ve grown! I’m glad you enjoyed the fritters 🙂

      • I freeze them all the time with great results. I put them in a single layer on a cookie sheet and freeze them. When frozen, I switch them to freezer bags. I thaw them and reheat in the oven at 350 degrees until heated through.

  6. Recipe looks delicious but I’m a little confused by the serving size! Is it the whole 6 fritters that have the 3 net grams of carb or just 1? I’m sure I wouldn’t be able to stop at one

    Reply
    • Hi Lyn,
      The recipe makes 6 serves, how many fritters depends on what size you make them. I have changed the servings to indicate “serves” rather than “fritters” to make it less confusing.
      I hope this helps.
