  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 8 1x


  • 1 medium zucchini
  • 2 medium Yukon gold potatoes (you can also use Russet potatoes)
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup gluten-free baking flour (use all-purpose flour if you aren’t on a gluten-free diet)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon finely-chopped fresh chives
  • Nonstick cooking spray


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Use a box grater or food processor fitted with the shredding disk to grate your zucchini and potatoes.
  3. Then, place the grated zucchini and potato in a cheesecloth or in the center of several layered clean paper towels. Squeeze the moisture out and then place the vegetables in a medium mixing bowl.
  4. Stir in the egg, flour, sea salt, black pepper, and chives.
  5. Then, use your hands to form the zucchini and potato mixture into thin fritters.
  6. Lay the fritters on the baking sheet and spray the tops lightly with nonstick cooking spray to help them brown.
  7. Bake the fritters for 20 minutes, and then use a spatula to flip them over. Spray the opposite sides lightly with the nonstick cooking spray and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
  8. The fritters will be done when they are crispy and have turned a golden brown on both sides.
  9. Serve hot, with your choice of ketchup, sour cream, applesauce, your favorite dipping sauce.
