Butternut Squash Fritters

  • Author: Food with Feeling
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 10 fritters 1x


  • 5 cups butternut squash, shredded and lightly squeezed of excess moisture
  • 2 large eggs or 2 flax eggs for vegan (2 tablespoons of flaxmeal + 5 tbs water)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, freshly chopped
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt & Freshly ground black pepper
  • Olive oil for frying


  1. In a bowl, combine the shredded squash, eggs, thyme, flour and salt & pepper. Mix until combined.
  2. Taking about 1/4 cup at a time, squeeze out any excess moisture and form the batter into discs.
  3. In a large skillet, heat about 1 tablespoon of oil until just hot. Add in the fritters and cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side. You want them to be a nice golden brown on each side and starting to get quite crispy around the edges.
  4. Let cool slightly and ENJOY!
