PREPRATION TIME:

  • yield: 10
  • prep time: 15 MINUTES
  • cook time: 6 MINUTES
  • total time: 21 MINUTES

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups shredded zucchini, dried and packed
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup onion, chopped
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • **Salt to taste AFTER cooking, if you add salt to the mixture itself it will release more moisture and be soggy.

Instructions:

  1. Shred the zucchini and place in a tea towel, fold the towel up and wring as much water out of the zucchini as you can. I do this at least two times.
  2. Place all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir until well combined. Allow the mixture to sit 5 minutes. Coconut flour absorbs a lot of moisture, so it needs a few minutes to soak everything up.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat with just enough oil to cover the bottom nicely. Use a small (1.5 inch cookie scoop) carefully place the batter in the hot oil and flatten slightly. Allow the fritters to cook 2-3 minutes until golden brown, then flip.

Salt and pepper to taste after cooking, serve with lemon wedges if desired.
