How I Made This Recipe Keto
This keto zucchini fritters recipe is one of those recipes where that didn’t require me to get too creative to transform the “regular” recipe into something appropriate for someone wanting to keep carbs to a minimum in order to lose weight.
Your typical zucchini fritter recipe calls for all-purpose flour. Unfortunately, white flour is swimming in carbs, so it’s got to go.
Coconut flour works perfectly as a stand in. One of the trickiest parts of working with coconut flour is getting the ratio right. Depending on what you’re making, substituting an equal amount of coconut flour in place of white flour might not get you the results you want.
Fortunately, I took the guesswork out of it for you.
Generally a little coconut flour goes a long way. In the case of these ketogenic fritters, however, the moisture from the zucchini and the fact that they’ll be pan fried means you’ll want to use a bit more. I landed on ¾ cup as the optimal amount.
Also, you shouldn’t be concerned that coconut flour will make these low-carb fritters taste tropical. It blends in well with other ingredients and isn’t overpowering at all. If you’re not on a dairy restricted diet, then you should try this zucchini fritters with feta and dill recipe.
- Preheat the oven to 350 F (180 C).
- After grating or food processing the zucchini, squeeze out as much moisture as you can by wrapping it in muslin and squeezing as hard as you can. Squeeze until you have a dry pulp.
- Combine all the ingredients except the olive oil and tomato salsa. Form into 12 balls of approximately 1oz (30g) each. Then press into flat patties.
- Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and carefully place the fritters into the hot oil. Once the bottom is golden and crispy turn them over and cook for a few more minutes until that side is also browned.
- Then, transfer the fritters to a greased baking tray and bake in oven for 10-15 minutes until fully cooked.
- Serve with a tomato salsa.
