Looking for an easy gluten-free breakfast that’s packed full of vegetables? These Gluten Free Zucchini Fritters will not disappoint. They are fabulous.
My kids especially enjoy eating them because they feel like they’re eating hash browns, but they’re getting so many more nutrients. I make extra (slightly undercooked) and store them in the freezer. Then I just pop them in a toaster oven during the week when I don’t have time to make these from scratch. You could even cook them in the toaster
I recommend shaping these fritters small and thin in the pan – about the size of silver dollar pancakes. They will develop a crunch on the edges.
Where to Get Kitchen Pantry Essentials
I get my other kitchen pantry supplies like sea salt, black pepper, spices, coconut oil, and other essentials either on Amazon or my local health food store usually. But then I got a Thrive membership. If you don’t already have one – it’s awesome! It’s like Whole Foods meets Costco. Bob’s Red Mill baking soda, for instance, is about $3 at my local health food store and $6 on Amazon. But it’s only $2.03 (YES!) on Thrive Market. Great deal right? And the raw honey?! Don’t even get me started how much that costs at the health food store. But on Thrive Market it’s just $5.45 for a 10.5 oz jar of raw honey.
