Baked Zucchini Fritters

December 5, 2014

Let me start off by saying that I have been obsessed with making baked zucchini fritters lately. I first started making them after seeing both Kayla Itsines’ recipe and Whitney’s (from LiveandDiet.com) take on zucchini fritters.

The recipe I am sharing with you today has been inspired by these two ladies, with my own twist on it. Instead of using coconut flour or whole-wheat flour, and instead of frying them, I used almond flour (so it is gluten-free friendly) and I baked them! 

Baked Zucchini Fritters

This is a fabulous way to get in a bunch of vegetables and makes a change from having your typical oatmeal or eggs for breakfast. Although don’t get me wrong, oatmeal and eggs make an amazing breakfast. Click here to try my kombucha and chia overnight oats recipe, here for my lavender and honey oatmeal, and here for my slow cooker oatmeal breakfast πŸ™‚

Ingredients
  1. 1 small zucchini
  2. 1 egg
  3. 1tbsp almond flour
  4. 1tsp black pepper
  5. 1tsp high quality salt
Instructions
  1. Firstly, preheat your oven to 400 degrees farenheit.
  2. Peel the zucchini and then put in food processor. Pulse it 2-3 times; enough so that you have small pieces of zucchini.
  3. Then you need to put the zucchini in a bowl and squeeze any extra moisture out using paper towels.
  4. After that, add the egg, almond flour, black pepper and salt. Mix together.
  5. This should make 4 small zucchini fritter 'patties'. Place in oven for 10 minutes, flip, and let bake for another 10 minutes.
  6. If you want a little more color, you may choose to broil the zucchini fritters for 2 minutes.
  7. Enjoy!
Notes
  1. Can substitute the almond flour for coconut flour or all-purpose flour.

I really hope you try these! They are such a fun and easy meal to make, and great for the colder winter months due to how warm and filling they are. The almond flour adds a heartiness to them and packs a punch by adding protein and healthy fats to the dish. Eggs are a great source of protein and the zucchini is a good source of fiber with the added benefits of lots of vitamins and minerals. I actually made this dish for breakfast this morning; just what I needed after such a cold and dreary week!
