Squash Fritters

These are super low in carbohydrates, high in protein & fibre and are designed to accompany your other brekkie foods. If you are going to have them on their own I would add some chopped ham, smoked salmon or bacon to give them a bit more of a flavour punch. I had these ones with some homemade sauerkraut of cabbage, beetroot & ginger then topped it with my Paleo Hummus. Yee ha!

1 cup squash (zucchini squash) grated & excess water squeezed out
2 tsp smoked paprika
Salt & pepper
1/4 cup flavourless whey protein (can substitute for more almond meal or coconut flour)
1/4 cup almond meal (or 1 tbs coconut flour)
3 eggs
1/2 red onion, very finely diced
Coconut oil- for cooking
OPTIONAL – 1 heaped tbs Pesto

Mix everything well in a bowl. Spoon into a hot frypan & cook like you would pancakes or fritters. Make them as big or small as you like. Top with a poached egg, smashed avocado, some bacon or smoked salmon! We also had ours with some grilled mushrooms. Haloumi would be delicious too. Use your imagination, I can’t do all the thinking for you 🙂
