Zucchini. It is almost the like the fruitcake of summer… except that people will actually eat zucchini and they generally appreciate it when the neighbor brings over a zucchini the size of a newborn.

By the end of zucchini season however, people begin to wonder what else to make other then tons of zucchini bread. (Psst, besides this zucchini fritter recipe, I also have recipes for chocolate zucchini bread smoothies, chocolate zucchini bread popsicles, and zucchini soup!)

If you are looking for something a bit different, why not give zucchini fritters a try?

Not only do you use up a massive amount of zucchini but also they are also pretty healthy! Zucchini Fritters are a bit like a pancake but with a crunch that’s reminiscent of hash browns. At least that’s what they remind me of.

My kids adore these things which is awesome because I love feeding them the tons of zucchini we are gifted!

Zucchini Fritters - this sounds like an amazing way to use up all that zucchini!!!!! #zucchini #zucchinifritters #realfood #summerfoods
