Keto Cauliflower Fritters

Keto Cauliflower Fritters

These delicious cheesy Keto cauliflower fritters are the perfect cure for someone craving hash browns.

Low carb and savory, these treats are crispy little patties made with mainly cauliflower, cheddar cheese, and eggs. No potatoes, flour, or corn starch used.

You grate the cauliflower and squeeze it dry then mixed it together with the other ingredients.

Spoonfuls of the mixture are dropped onto a hot buttered pan, flattened into cauliflower “pancakes,” and cooked on both sides until crispy and golden. They’re topped with refreshing sliced scallions before serving.


It takes about 15 minutes to prep everything, then around 25 minutes to cook. This recipe makes 2 servings and 440 calories per serving with 5 net carbs.

  • 10 ounces cauliflower florets (roughly half a large head)
  • 2 ounces shredded cheddar cheese (roughly 2/3 cup)
  • 1 ounce blanched almond flour (roughly 1/4 cup)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 scallion thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Using a food processor or box grater, grate the cauliflower florets. In a bowl, stir with salt until well-mixed.
  2. Using a nut milk bag or cheese cloth, squeeze moisture from the grated cauliflower, discarding about 3/4 cup of liquid.

  3. In a bowl, combine the cauliflower mixture with cheese, almond flour, eggs, and pepper, stirring until well-mixed.
  4. Heat a wide pan over medium heat for a few minutes or until hot. Spread butter on the pan as it melts.
  5. For thick patties (shown in photos): Scoop about 1/4 cup of the cauliflower mixture onto the hot pan and flatten with a spatula to form a 3-4 inch patty. For thin patties: Use only 2-3 tablespoons.
  6. Cook until the bottom is crispy and golden brown, about 5 minutes, then carefully flip to cook the other side. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate to drain.
  7. Repeat until all of the mixture is used up, working in batches as needed. I usually cook about 3-4 patties simultaneously on a pan.
  8. Serve and top with scallions.
