Paleo Zucchini Fritters

Cath Noonan

I made these tasty high protein Paleo Zucchini Fritters for breakfast this morning and they turned out very, very well. They really only have two key ingredients (zucchini and egg), with the optional, but worthy addition of fresh herbs – I chose mint, but parsley or basil or a combination would also do nicely, as does a wedge of lemon to serve.

It’s recipes like this that makes healthy eating just so easy. Easy to make and easy to make you feel good!

  • In the small mixing bowl, beat the eggs with a fork.
  • Grate the zucchini onto a plate or chopping board and squeeze out the excess moisture (one handful at a time) before adding to the eggs.
  • Add the optional chopped herbs and season with sea salt and pepper. Mix to combine.
  • Heat a frying pan with coconut oil (or other cooking fat of your choice) and cook tablespoons of the mixture, turning when lightly golden on each side.
  • Serve the zucchini fritters immediately with a wedge of lemon.
