Low-Carb Thyme and Zucchini Fritters

Recipe & content provided by Jordan Pie

These keto and Whole30-approved zucchini fritters are so easy to whip up, incredibly versatile, super-tasty, and a delicious way to sneak more vegetables into your diet when you just don’t want to eat another salad. I love to make these fritters in big batches so I can have them throughout the week. They’re perfect for a savory breakfast on days you’re not doing an intermittent fast, or for lunch or dinner. Top your zucchini fritters with any of your favorite toppings such as poached eggs, smoked salmon, avocado, homemade hollandaise sauce or pesto to add even more deliciousness.

Low-Carb Thyme and Zucchini Fritters


  • 2 medium-sized zucchini, grated
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 3/4 cup blanched almond meal
  • 2 organic eggs
  • Grass-fed ghee for cooking

Suggested Toppings: serve with fresh avocado, poached egg on top, quality smoked salmon


  1. Add the grated zucchini and salt to a bowl and mix together. Set it aside for 10-15 minutes and allow the salt to draw out some of the water.
  2. Remove as much liquid from the zucchini as possible; you can put the mixture into a tea towel and squeeze out the excess liquid, or simply use a fine-mesh strainer.
    Add all the ingredients into a bowl and mix together to combine.
  3. Heat a large frying pan on medium heat. Add some ghee to the pan and allow it to melt. Once the pan has heated up, place some of the mixture on to the pan to create a fritter for a test batch. Flip the fritter carefully once the bottom is golden brown and continue cooking the other side until golden brown.
  4. Slide the fritter onto a plate.
  5. If the mixture is too dry, mix through another egg (I find these are easier to cook and flip if the mixture is a little on the runnier side, you will just have to re-mix the raw mixture in between cooking the fritters if the liquid begins to separate). If the mixture is too wet, add a little more almond meal until you reach your desired consistency.
  6. Continue cooking the fritters and add more ghee to the pan as needed.
  7. When they’re all ready and cooked begin to plate up.
  8. Serve with your choice of toppings and enjoy.
