Keto oven baked zucchini fritters (zucchini pancakes) are nutritious, tasty and filling family friendly low carb and gluten free breakfast or a snack.
It’s zucchini season here. We have a tons of zucchini and every day I try to think what to prepare out of them. Today’s breakfast was a real discovery for my family.
This type of zucchini fritters I bake in the oven, and you can easily do the same! Just grate them, mix with other ingredients and put it in the oven. In 15 minutes you have a really yummy breakfast! Of course, you can fry them on a pan, but this is so much easier and faster.
I am not a huge fan of zucchini, their watery structure is not so attractive to me, but this keto zucchini breakfast I could eat every day. I think that the reason is related to my secret ingredient! That’s pumpkin seeds flour. That’s basically ground pumpkin seed, and it goes so good with zucchini, they are perfect match!
Are pumpkin seeds keto?
If you still haven’t tried ground pumpkin seeds or pumpkin seed flour, you just have to try! This recipe is great occasion. Pumpkin seeds are really nutritious and taste is incredible. In this recipe I put 2 TBS of pumpkin seeds flour, and it gives so much of flavor, and don’t contribute so much with carbs as with nutrients. They are packed with magnesium, copper, iron and vitamin K.
Pumpkin seeds flour
Pumpkin seeds flour is really nice flour for low carb baking, you can put it in all low carb baked goods like low carb breads, cakes and pastries. Because of special flavor it will give really interesting “whole grains” flavor. Like from the artisan bakery.
