Total Time17 mins
Course: Grain/Gluten Free, Specific Carbohydrate Diet Legal
Servings: 7 -10 fritters


  • 3 cups grated zucchini approx 2 medium zucchini
  • 1 egg
  • juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • 1/4 cup chopped scallions
  • 1/2 cup parmesan
  • 1/2 cup Almond Flour
  • salt and pepper
  • oil for frying
  • Sour cream or homemade SCD yogurt optional


  • Trim both ends of the zucchini and using a medium sized cheese grater, shred the zucchini to yield 3 packed cups. Squeeze the shredded zucchini between 2 paper towels to remove any excess liquid
  • In a bowl mix the eggs, lemon juice, shredded zucchini and chopped scallions. Once well mixed add in the parmesan and almond flour and season with salt and pepper
  • Depending on how moist your zucchini is you may want to add in another tablespoon or so of almond flour
  • Heat 1-2 tablespoons of oil on medium-high heat. Once hot, drop large spoonfuls of the zucchini mixture on to the pan, if you are serving these as canapes I would use tablespoon sized amounts of the mixture.
  • Cook for 3 minutes until the bottoms have developed a golden color and then flip. After flipping gently press down on the fritters with a spatula to flatten them out and ensure more even cooking throughout. Cook for 3 minutes.
  • Once fritters are golden brown on both sides, transfer to a plate and keep warm in an oven on 100 degrees until just before serving
  • To serve top with sour cream or SCD yogurt and a sprinkle of chopped scallions. Enjoy!
