Protein Rich Hemp Zucchini Fritters

It’s all too common to see a Clinic client’s Nutrition review of their diet to be low in both Iron and Protein. These Hemp fritters are high in Iron, Protein (37gm) fibre, folate, selenium and magnesium which make them a great addition to the family menu especially for those feeling low energy, fatigue, restless legs or struggling with concentration levels. Whip them up for brekkie or take them cold for snacks through the day.

Hemp protein is milled from whole hemp seeds and is also good source of Omega 3 which is a powerful anti inflammatory as well as important for brain development. It’s highly dense in nutrients and easy to add to most meals or smoothies.


Ingredients for 6 smallish fritters:

2 eggs
1 cup grated and squeezed zucchini
1 Tbs Chopped fresh parsley
1 sliced lemon peel strip
3 Tbs almond meal
1.5 Tbs hemp protein powder (I use 13 seeds)
30gm crumbled Feta


  1. Whisk eggs and mix all ingredients into egg mix.
  2. Heat a fry pan with a touch of butter or ghee tp a medium/high heat
  3. Add dollops of fritter mix to the pan and wait until cooked thoroughly on one side before flipping.
  4. Serve. Add your fave sauce or Greek yoghurt and season to taste.
