The fritters look interesting!
I have lots of frozen greens(spinach & baby kale) , do you think I can use them , probably add some coconut or almond flour to get the texture?

Reply

Yes, I think you can use any greens - just make sure to squeeze any excess water once thawed. If the batter is too moist, you could add a tablespoon of coconut flour. I hope this helps!

This recipe looks so great! I’m excited to try it. For tracking purposes... is the avacado included in the nutritional value of this recipe, or is that an optional addition that I should track separately?

Reply

Thank you Ann! All ingredients are included unless they are listed as "optional" - So in this case all listed ingredients are included in the nutrition facts.

Hi Jo!
I’m a Keto beginner. Your recipes look scrumptious! I have an egg allergy though and I am wondering what I could use as a substitute in these Green Goddess Fritters? I bake a lot using ground flax or “chia eggs”... but it’s difficult to find subs in breakfast recipes. Any advice for egg-Free Ketoers? Thank you!

Hi Yemaya, I think that the "flax egg" would be the best substitute. I made a similar recipe using flax and water (1 tbsp flax with 3 tbsp of water per egg). It won't be the same but it's the best substitute.

Hi, is there a substitute for the cream cheese for those of us who are dairy intolerant....please something other than coconut cream cheese! Would it work with coconut oil?
Thanks

I think you can use an extra egg instead. It won't be exactly the same but will do the trick 😊
