Keto Zucchini Fritters

zucchinni fritters

These Keto Zucchini Fritters are about as close as I’m ever gonna get to a low-carb version of one of my childhood favs – the potato latke. Sour cream with chives or creme fresh are still in but a little tzatziki can be a nice tweak to switch things up.

This is the perfect side dish in place of potatoes or if you are just cauliflower’d out.

These would also be a great base for a low-carb eggs Benedict on a lazy weekend morning. These Keto Zucchini Fritters are so good the kids will even like them. These will be especially good in summer with local farm fresh zucchinis but you can get good ones all year round.

  2. 1/3 cup almond flour or coconut flour or a mix of both
  3. 2 scallions, chopped fine
  4. 1/4 small onion, chopped fine
  5. 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  6. 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  7. 2 eggs
  8. 1/4 cup avocado oil
  9. 1 tbsp. coconut oil
  10. 1.5 tsp. Pepper, fresh ground
  11. 1 tsp. salt
Instructions
  1. Grate the zucchini on a box grater - medium grate.

  6. Add them to the zucchini and mix thoroughly.
  7. Heat oils in a medium to large pan over medium - high heat.
  8. Oil should completely cover the bottom surface of the pan.
  9. When the oil is hot, stir the zucchini mixture one more time and dip a ΒΌ cup measuring cup into the batter, level off. Dump the batter into the pan and gently push it into a flat pancake shape with the back of a metal spatula.
  10. Cook for four minutes adjusting the heat up or down as needed, then flip, cooking for another four minutes. Add more oil to the pan if needed to prevent sticking.
  11. Salt then drain the zucchini fritters on a paper towel before serving.
