Lazy Brunch Pumpkin Fritters

Is there anything more relaxing than a lazy brunch? I made this fall-inspired treat on a rainy Sunday, and it hit the spot – even for DH, and he’s not a huge fan of zucchini.

Serve with your favorite toppings – creme fraiche, smoked salmon, fluffy eggs, bacon, pico – whatever you have in hand that needs to be used up.

Lazy Brunch Pumpkin Fritters

2c. shredded zucchini
6T. canned pumpkin purée (the 100% pumpkin kind, not the one that’s pre-spiced for pie)
1T. garlic powder
1T. onion powder
1t. curry powder
1T. fresh rosemary, chopped
1/2c. almond flour
1/3-1/2c. coconut flour
1 egg
Ghee for cooking

Toppers – I served with smoked salmon and soft scrambled chive eggs

Shred your zucchini, lay on a towel or paper towels, and press the water out.

Add to a large bowl with the rest of the critter ingredients. Stir to combine.

Heat a large pan over medium-high heat and add a couple Tablespoons ghee.

Form the critters into palm-sized patties as you go. Brown, flip, remove to a plate until everything is finished.

Serve with toppers.

Serves 2-3 for breakfast
