These healthy air fryer courgette (zucchini) fritters are super versatile and make a great breakfast, lunch or snack! They are also gluten free.
Im seriously loving my air fryer right now and have moved from using it just to make sweet potato fries The Best Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries to using it for a whole host of things. These fritters made in the Air fryer are crispy on the outside yet nice and soft on the inside. Thanks to the Air Fryer, you aren’t left with fritters soaked in oil making them even healthier than your regular fritters.
Not only do the fritters contain courgette I also added some grated carrot providing you with 2 of your 5 a day to kick start the day.
The hardest bit about this recipe is grating the courgette and squeezing out the excess moisture. Once that bits done you simply combine the rest of the ingredients and then place them in the air fryer. Voila!
I used buckwheat flour in the recipe but you could use regular flour or gluten free flour instead. I love combining these fritters with a bit of natural yoghurt, smoked salmon and a lentil dip but they taste equally good on their own or with eggs.
Heres the recipe:
- ½ medium courgette/ zucchini
- ¼ carrot grated
- 35g Cheese grated
- 1 Tsp salt
- 1 large egg
- 3 Tbsp Buckwheat flour *
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- ¼ tsp paprika
- ¼ tsp black pepper
- Oil for spraying
- Use a grater to grate the courgette and carrot
- Use a good quality paper towel to squeeze excess water our of courgette until it is dry. Place in a clean and dry bowl.
- Add carrot, salt, egg, flour, garlic powder, cheese, paprika, and black pepper to courgette and stir.
- Spoon the mixture into 4 large fritters and place in the air fryer spraying with some low calorie oil
- Close Air Fryer and cook on 190o for 12 minutes, flipping and spraying halfway through
