  • Total Time: 35 mins
  • Yield: 2 for dinner - 4 as a side dish 1x



  • 1 pound zucchini, ends cut off and grated
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup fine almond flour
  • 2 Tablespoons golden flax meal
  • 1 Teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 clove garlic, minced

Avocado Crema:

  • 1 avocado, pitted and peeled
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk, from the can
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Teaspoon sea salt

Optional Toppings:

  • quartered cherry tomatoes
  • thinly sliced basil or any other herb you love
  • thinly sliced green onions


  1. Mix together all the ingredients for the fritters in a medium size mixing bowl.
  2. Preheat a cast iron pan over medium heat. I used a 9″ pan, but you can use a bigger one if you have it.
  3. While the pan heats, make the avocado crema by blending the avocado, coconut milk, lemon juice, and sea salt in a blender until smooth. Transfer the crema to a serving dish and set aside.
  4. Prepare any of the optional fritter toppings and place them in serving dishes as well.
  5. Pour a small amount of avocado oil into your preheated pan, just enough to lightly coat the bottom.
  6. Place small dollops of fritter batter into the pan – about 4″ in diameter. You will be able to cook 3 fritters at a time in a 9″ skillet.
  7. Cook for about 3 minutes or until the fritters begin to set up and the bottom is golden brown, turn the fritters and cook another 3 minutes or until golden.
  8. Continue the cooking process, adding oil when necessary until all the batter is gone.
  9. Serve the fritters immediately as soon as they come out of the pan for crispiest results.
  10. It really speeds up the cooking process to have 2 pans going on the stove, especially if you’re making this for more than 2 people.


This recipe can be easily multiplied to feed more, and it’s a great way to use up your extra zucchini.
