Ingredients

  • 1 medium zucchini, grated
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 egg
  • Fresh ground pepper, to taste

Directions

1
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lay the grated zucchini on a layer of paper towels and sprinkle with salt. Allow to sit for 5 minutes and transfer to a strainer. Using a wooden spoon or spatula, press out as much liquid as you can.

2
Transfer to a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients. Stir until just combined.

3

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and drop spoonfuls of the mixture a couple inches apart. Bake for 10 minutes, flip and bake for 10 more until both sides are golden brown. Serve with sour cream or yogurt if desired.

NOTE: For crispier fritters, 
spray or brush each fritter with a little olive oil just before flipping the first time,
 then spray the other side once flipped.
