Oven Baked Zucchini Fritters

MAKES: 12    PREP: 20 min  COOK: 25 min

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ lb. zucchini (about 3), grated
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 1 cup. almond flour
  • 3 tbsp. fresh chives, finely chopped
  • ½ tbsp. garlic powder
  • Cooking fat
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 F.
  2. Squeeze any extra moisture out the shredded zucchini and pat it try – really try to get as much liquid out as possible.

To make sure the fritters get properly crispy, be very aggressive about squeezing water out of the zucchini. Often it helps to shred them, sprinkle them with salt, and then let them sit for a minute or two to draw the water out. Then you can squeeze the shreds with your hands or in a cheesecloth (you might be surprised at the amount of water one zucchini can produce!). This helps avoid any potential sogginess and give you that nice crispy edge to the tops.

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl, season to taste, and stir until everything is well combined.
  2. Grease each muffin tin, and fill each cup with an equal amount of the zucchini mixture.
  3. Place in the oven and bake for about 25 minutes.
  4. Serve warm with your favorite topping: pulled pork, shredded beef, pulled chicken, or even beef patties.
