  1. can you use atkins all purpose cooking flour instead of coconut flour….hard to find where i live and need a substitute….?

  2. Those certainly look good! I haven’t tried coconut flour in fritters yet, just CarbQuick. And I’m trying to get away from CQ, so I’ll try these!

    Hello Cori

    I found a connection to this recipe on the Atkins forum this morning – I thought they looked good and I had a zucchini in the fridge. However, I didn’t have any coconut flour (don’t know where to get it either) so used flax seed meal (the golden kind) instead – I’ve just eaten one with a thin slice of cheese for my morning snack and it was very tasty!

    Since I only had one zucchini I made a half amount – I counted the net carbs thus – medium zucchini – 3 , 1 egg – 0.6, flax seed meal – 0, butter – trivial amount – I got 7 fritters from this and although the math is obviously not completely precise I’m going to count 0.6 for each fritter – do you agree?

  4. These are stinkin fabulous. Remind me of fried green tomatoes.

  5. We had these tonight with a roasted chicken. Sooooo good. Kids gobbled them up, no problem. Thanks Cori. Feelsbest on Atkins Forum.

  6. Cori, I have seen your posting and thought I would give some of your recipes a try. Thank you ahead of time for the posting these. It will help me out.
