What you will need:

  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • ⅛ of garlic powder
  • coconut oil

 

Directions:

Prep Time: 15 minutes  ◊   Cook Time: 4 minutes  ◊  Yields: 9 fritters

  1. In a large bowl, add butternut squash, flour, egg, sage, garlic powder and season with salt and pepper. Using a spatula mix until thoroughly combined. Line a large plate with paper towels. 
  2. Heat a large cast iron or non-stick pan to medium heat and melt a generous amount of coconut oil in the pan. Spoon ¼ cup of the mixture into the pan and gently press to flatten into rounds. Cook fritters for 2 minutes, gently flip, then cook for an additional 2 minutes until golden brown. 
  3. Transfer cooked fritters to paper towel-lined plate. Repeat with the remaining mixture. Add more coconut oil to the pan with each new batch.

*Store fritters in an air-tight container or ziplock bag for up to 5 days. Easily reheat for warm fritters on the fly.  You can also freeze them and just pop them in the microwave to thaw.
