  • Did you know that this inexpensive vegetable has only 62 calories per cup and is packed with vitamin C, A, potassium, folate, and fiber!
  • It can be used in so many dishes too.

It’s not only great for creating sweet things like pumpkin zucchini muffins, but we have made TONS of zucchini dinner recipes. You can even slice it and eat it raw dipped in Ranch dressing, so good!

These fritters are a great side dish, or vegetarian meal. Below is where it all starts from though right?? You don’t have to grow your own, we don’t have a garden yet in our new home. It is sure nice to just pick your own though.

Zucchini Fritters

Here are a few questions you might have, or things to keep in mind before you get started on these:

How do you drain grated zucchini?

Great question, and something you really need to do. Especially when baking with this wet veggie, you need to get some of the water out. I like to shred on paper towels and press down gently.how to make zucchini bread

What goes well with zucchini fritters?

Most like to top them with sour cream or tzatziki sauce. Serve along side a salad and you have yourself a healthy meal that will satiate you for sure.

Now get out a bowl and let’s get to making the “dough”.

Can you reheat zucchini fritters?

Of course. Take out of the fridge and it is best to allow them to reach room temperature a bit first. Then microwave for 45 seconds or you could warm in an oven at 375 F for about 10 minutes.

Can you freeze cooked zucchini fritters?

You could. Make sure you allow them to cool off completely, then transfer to a freezer bag. They can be frozen safely for about 2 months.

Here are quick step by step instructions but we have a printable recipe card at the bottom of this post as well.

Time needed: 15 minutes.

Air Fryer Zucchini Fritters

  1. Prepare

    Grate zucchini on top of a few paper towels folded together to absorb some of the water.

    Transfer to a bowl and toss with the salt. Let sit for 15 minutes to absorb more of the water. (you can skip this if you wish to reduce the sodium, just fold shredded pcs. in paper towels, press down)

    After 15 minutes sitting, transfer zucchini to paper towels and press down.

    In another large bowl add the egg, almond flour, 1 of the green onions, seasoning, baking powder and cheese until combined.
    Preheat the air fryer to 375 degrees F for 5 minutes.

    Gently incorporate the grated dried zucchini into the batter mix.

  2. Cook

    Create small patties with the mixture, spray inside of air fryer basket with non stick olive oil spray. Set patties on parchment paper until they’re all prepared.

    Set inside in a single layer with a bit of space between each of them.

    Set to cook for 15 minutes at 375 F, flip each one over after 10 minutes. Can spray the fritters after 10 min. air frying to be extra crispy. Remove when they’re as golden brown as you’d like.

It is very important remember to lay zucchini and squeeze water out or else these will likely fall apart and not crisp well.
