Get ready to enjoy zucchinis like you have never enjoyed them before! These zucchini fritters are keto friendly since they are made with almond (or coconut) flour and are super delicious and healthy! This is the best time of the year to make them too since zucchinis and summer squash are popping up everywhere from our gardens to the farmer’s market! You can make this recipe with any kind of squash you can find – green zucchini, yellow zucchini, patty pan squash! The choices are endless.
Something to keep in mind for the recipe is that you really want to squeeze out as much of the water as you can from the shredded zucchinis or the fritters will not stay together. I shredded it the night before, added the salt and left it in the fridge in a colander over night. Then right before I made the fritters, I squeezed the zucchinis with a cheese cloth to get any remaining liquids out. If you find your mixture a little wet still, you can add more almond of coconut flour to bind it together. Use your judgement. If you cannot form a fritter and its falling apart before you even cook it, it is probably too wet and need more almond or coconut flour!
These fritters are gluten free, low carb, keto friendly and still delicious so everyone can enjoy them! They are definitely a crowd pleaser! Hope you give them a try for your next potluck or BBQ! I guarantee you will love them!
