Zucchini Fritters are an easy and tasty way to get some extra veggies into your day- either during the summer when you are looking for zucchini recipes to use up your garden crop, or all year long as a yummy side dish, lunch, or even breakfast!  This Zucchini Fritters Recipe is low carb, vegetarian, gluten free, and baked in the oven for crispy goodness, without a ton of oil.  



3 large zucchini 

2 eggs 

parmesan or pecorino Romano cheese

seasoned gluten free breadcrumbs 


optional – fresh herbs – parsley, basil, oregano.  I often eat them plain, though!

olive oil cooking spray 


  1. Preheat oven to 400 
  2. Shred zucchini using your food processor or hand grater.  Place shredded zucchini in a colander and sprinkle with salt.  Allow it to rest for a few minutes, then squeeze out as much liquid as you can using a clean kitchen towel or thick paper towels.  Discard liquid. 
  3. Whisk eggs in a medium sized bowl and fold in shredded zucchini.  Add in 4 T of parmesan cheese and 4 T of gluten free breadcrumbs.  Season with a shake of salt and fresh herbs, if desired.  
  4. Form 8 patties and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment.  Spray with olive oil cooking spray and bake for 8 minutes, then flip and bake for 8 more minutes or until patties are browned and crispy on the outside.
