These zucchini fritters are the perfect after school snack! They are cheesy, crispy, and easy to pull out of the freezer when needed.


  • Zucchini fritters
  • 2-3 medium zucchini, shredded with the moisture squeezed out
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1/4 c bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1/2 C shredded cheese (any combination of parmesan, cheddar, white cheddar, colby, etc)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried parsley
  • salt + pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Combine shredded zucchini, egg, cheese, breadcrumbs, and seasonings in a large bowl. The mix shouldn’t be overly wet; just wet enough that it stays together when scooped.
  3. Line a tray with parchment paper. I used a cookie scoop to divide the mixture into 3 oz portions. Place about 3 inches apart on baking sheet. Gently press to tops down to flatten into a “patty” shape. (OPTIONAL: to promote browning, I lightly sprayed the patties with avocado oil spray.)
  4. Bake for 20 minutes, flipping halfway.


Add a 1/4 of a yellow onion to the mix. Just grate the onion when you grate the zucchini.

Add a shredded white potato to the mix to yield more fritters. The starch from the potato will also help the fritter crisp up more. Don’t forget to add a little extra salt.

Freeze these patties for easy weekday snacks! Lay them flat on a tray or plate and freeze for 2 hours. Transfer to a freezer safe bag or container and cook them as needed.

Try cooking them in the air fryer!

Serve with marinara sauce, tatziki, or ranch!
