Vegan, Gluten Free and Keto Broccoli Fritters

Easy to prepare Broccoli Fritters are so delicious made with lots of broccoli and a great way to eat your veggies. They are vegan, gluten-free and keto. They can be served as an appetizer or sandwich.

Are you looking for low-carb options for your meal plan, well look no further!

These broccoli fritters are helpful for those who are trying to eat healthily, they are also perfect for someone on a candida diet. They taste great and hold together well and didn’t fall apart, using chickpea flour and ground flax seeds.

Low-carb broccoli fritters are actually crispy on the outside and soft inside with a lovely earthy flavor spiced with cumin, cilantro and a touch of cayenne pepper. And they are AMAZING with our Tuscan Dip.


  • 1 medium head, broccoli florets
  • 1/2 medium onion, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup chickpea flour
  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Coconut oil for shallow frying


  1. Place broccoli florets, onion, cilantro and garlic in batches in a food processor and process until crumbly (looks like rice grains).
  2. Transfer to a large bowl. Stir in chickpea flour, flaxseed meal, cumin, cayenne pepper and salt. Mix well and squeeze together like you are forming a dough.
  3. Heat oil on medium in a large skillet. Form into patties about 1/4 cup, place fritters in the skillet, reduce heat to low and cook fritters on each side for about 4 minutes until golden brown.
  4. These are lightly fried and not deep fried. What I do is cover the skillet after I turn them to make sure the fritters are well cooked in the middle.
  5. Alternatively, you can bake on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and sprayed with cooking spray in a preheated oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes, turning halfway. Serve with my vegan ranch dressing.
