  • 1 each Zucchini, Large (323g each)
  • 0 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 2 oz Mozzarella Cheese, whole milk
  • 2 Tbsp Coconut Flour
  • 2 Tbsp Parmesan Cheese, grated
  • 1 Tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 each Garlic, clove
  • 0 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 2 each Egg
  • 4 Tbsp Canola Oil


  1. Grate the zucchini using the large holes of a box grater. Combine with salt, and place in a colander to drain for 30 minutes. Use a clean kitchen towel to squeeze additional liquid out of the zucchini.
  2. Warm the air fryer to 400° for at least 3 minutes.
  3. In a medium bowl, toss the zucchini shreds, shredded mozzarella, coconut flour, parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, baking powder, and minced or pressed garlic until evenly combined. 
  4. Use a fork to lightly whisk the eggs, add to the zucchini and stir until combined. Form into 12 patties of approximately 1/8 cup batter each. Spray each side of each patty with about ½ teaspoon canola oil.
  5. Working in batches if needed, arrange patties in air fryer in a single layer with space between. Cook for 3 minutes per side, or until evenly golden with crispier edges. Serve warm. One serving is two fritters.
No Air Fryer? No problem! Follow the instructions above through forming the patties. In a 10-inch skillet warm 1/3 cup canola oil over medium heat until shimmering. Fry each patty for 2-3 minutes per side, or until evenly golden with darker, crispy edges. Drain on a paper towel lined plate and serve warm.
