  • 1 cup zucchini shredded
  • 1 cup carrots shredded
  • ½ cup scallions sliced thinly
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • 1 Tablespoon arrowroot powder
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil divided


  1. Take shredded zucchini and place in a mesh sieve. Allow to drain for 20-30 minutes. Wring out water with a towel. Place shredded carrot in a clean towel and wring out.
  2. In a medium sized bowl combine almond flour, arrowroot, and salt. Add egg and combine. Add zucchini and carrot and mix well until a thick batter is formed.
  3. In a nonstick skillet (or cast iron skillet), heat 2 Tablespoons of olive oil until shimmering. Add scoops of zucchini carrot mixture (I use a large ice cream scoop), press down on the centers to form round fritters. Cook for approximately 3 minutes per side, flipping once in the middle.

  4. Remove to a paper towel lined plate. Allow to cool slightly. Serve with Lemon Basil Aioli!

Recipe Notes

These are best served right out of the pan!
