Servings 6 fritters


  • 1 medium-sized zucchini
  • ½ teaspoon salt for the zucchini
  • 1 egg
  • cup ground oat flakes
  • ½ teaspoon granulated garlic
  • cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped chives
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • First, preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Wash the zucchini, trim the ends, and then grate it. Season with half a teaspoon of salt, mix, and leave it to release water (between 10 and 30 minutes). After that, thoroughly drain the zucchini by squeezing it between your palms.
  • In the meantime, you can prepare the other ingredients. Grind the oat flakes in a blender (or use oat flour). Grate the Cheddar cheese, and finely chop the chives.
  • After combining all the ingredients in one bowl, use a spoon to form 5-6 patties on the tray.
  • Place the patties in the oven for 15 minutes, flip them, and then return to the oven for another 15 minutes.
  • Serve the warm patties with cheese spread or Greek yogurt. Enjoy your meal!
