Servings 5


  • 3 medium yellow squash grated
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt divided
  • 2 whole green onions chopped
  • 1/4 cup arrowroot flour or tapioca flour
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil


  1. Place grated squash and 1 teaspoon salt in a colander and drain for about 20 minutes. Press squash to drain as much water as possible. Spoon squash to a clean, dry towel and squeeze to remove even more water.

  2. In a medium bowl, combine squash and 1/2 teaspoon salt, green onions, flours, pepper, eggs and cheese. Stir to combine.

  3. Heat oil in cast iron skillet. Scoop about 1/4 cup of batter at a time and release in skillet to form fritters; flatten slightly. Cook about 2 to 3 minutes on one side; flip and cook another 2 to 3 minutes or until nicely browned.

Recipe Notes

Serve these fritters with full-fat Greek yogurt and fresh chives. They make a great vegetarian main dish or a hearty vegetable side dish. They are also kid friendly and a great alternative for potato pancakes!  If you are lucky enough to have any leftover fritters, try making Eggs Benedict with them, replacing the English muffin with a fritter or two.
