Coming up with ideas for breakfast can be frustrating. Sometimes you can get into a rut of eating the same thing every morning. In which case, it’s time to switch it up! Look no further because these paleo zucchini fritters are a flavorful option! They also make a delicious side dish for dinner, too.

If you want to start your day off on the best note possible, getting in some veggies first thing in the morning is a great way to go about it. And no vegetable is more versatile than zucchini. Like all veggies, zucchini is loaded with nutrients and can help improve digestion, manage weight and boost energy.

Paleo Zucchini Fritters Recipe

While these fritters are a great side dish for dinner, I love to eat them for breakfast. They are perfect alongside some scrambled eggs. Did you know it’s so easy to make your own paleo zucchini fritters at home?  And guess what? If you’re on the Whole30, these fritters are compliant!

For those who may have issues with certain foods, these zucchini fritters make a wonderful breakfast option because they’re also gluten-free and dairy-free. Using Wildly Organic Almond Flour in place of wheat flour gives them a boost of healthy fats but it also removes any gluten issues.

Another perk of these easy zucchini fritters is that they contain nutrition yeast. Nutritional yeast is a powerhouse when it comes to nutrients. It’s a complete protein, contains a lot of B vitamins and has a hefty dose of minerals too. Plus, it gives recipes an ever so slight cheesy flavor without actually adding any dairy!

These fritters are perfect for an easy weekend brunch or you can make a big batch and keep them in the fridge for the week. They’re great for meal prep! Eat them as is topped with your favorite sauce (like cashew sour cream or chipotle mayo) or reheat and toss them on top of some leafy greens for a delicious salad!

    Cook Time12 minutes
    1. Grate the zucchini and toss it with the sea salt. Let sit in a strainer for five minutes.
    2. Then, use your hands to squeeze the excess water out of the zucchini.
    3. Melt 1 tablespoon of coconut oil.
    4. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, zucchini and the melted coconut oil.
    5. Add in the almond flour, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, onion powder, baking powder, pink sea salt, ground black pepper, and arrowroot powder and mix until combined. Let sit for two minutes.
    6. Meanwhile, heat a large pan over medium-high heat. Add the remaining two tablespoons of coconut oil and let melt.
    7. Once the pan and oil are hot, portion out the fritters. Use an ice cream scoop to scoop out the batter, press it together with a spatula (so it will hold together) and place in the oil. Then, use a form to press the fritter down until about ¼-1/2 inch thick.
    8. Cook uncovered for 6 minutes until the bottom is golden brown and then flip to the other side. Cook for another 4-6 minutes until cooked through.
    9. Top with your favorite toppings, such as chipotle mayo, sliced avocado, or cashew sour cream.
