5-Ingredient Butternut Squash Fritters

A new, fun and crispy way to do butternut squash.


  • 5 cups shredded butternut squash (1 medium butternut squash)
  • 1/2 cup chickpea flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • Olive oil


  1. In a large bowl, combine the shredded butternut squash, chickpea flour, eggs, and kosher salt, stirring until the mixture is combined.
  2. Heat olive oil over medium-high heat.
  3. Once the oil is hot, scoop out approximately 1/3 cup of the mixture and place into the pan, pressing down lightly into rounds, spacing them approximately 2 inches apart.
  4. Cook the fritters for 2 to 3 minutes, then flip them once and cook an additional 2 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.
  5. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Repeat with the remaining mixture.
