Our keto chicken fritters recipe was born from our famous keto cakes, a mix of either lobster or crab with traditional crab cake ingredients. Instead, we changed it up a bit to create keto fritters that you can use almost ANY main ingredient! Experiment by swapping out the chicken for zucchini or other proteins!  Any which way you make these, one thing is for sure, they are juicy, crispy and delicious. Enjoy!

What is a fritter?

Traditionally a fritter is a really thick batter loaded with small pieces of whatever ingredients you decide to use.  Flour, buttermilk, egg and seasonings are the basis of a classic fritter recipe. One of the most popular fritters out there is a sweet one, apple.  Zucchini fritters are also popular.  

To keep the recipe easier, our keto fritters are pan fried. The result is super crispy edges, juicy inside and completely satisfying.  Oh, we also swap out the flour of course!

The perfect appetizer or take along

Take these to a party and I GUARANTEE everyone will eat these keto fritters. There really is no way the NON keto/low carber's would even notice.  A recipe like this doesn't scream "Oh hey! I am made with almond flour instead of regular flour".  No joke... you can't tell. Pair them with a simple keto friendly dipping sauce and BOOM. Enter all the praise in the world. No fork and knife needed, grab a napkin and these keto cakes, delicious.
