Low Carb Zucchini Tots. These are so simple to make and are also great as leftovers. My kids love them too. Low carb, keto, high fat, sugar free, gluten free, 21 day fix approved.

One of my rules when we eat dinner together as a family is to always have at least a serving of vegetables on our plates. When I switched to eating low carb, high fat a few weeks ago, I was finding myself eating a lot more vegetables than I used to.

We now usually have 2 servings of vegetables on our plates at dinnertime! I’ve cut out the carbs for most of our dinners. That’s not to say we never have them, we still do enjoy yams or potatoes or white rice, but it’s not every day like we used to.

I love that my family is eating more vegetables than they ever have! I’ve been hard at work trying to find or create yummy and delicious ways to serve them vegetables. I was so happy when I found this recipe for Zucchini Tots that didn’t contain bread crumbs!

These Low Carb Zucchini Tots are one of those ways to get your kids to eat more veggies!

These were so delicious, the whole family really enjoyed them. And I even had some leftovers for my lunch the next day.

I used a mini muffin tray, but you could make them larger and use a regular muffin tray, just note the nutrition information will change.

This would be a great dish to have on hand for the week! You could make a batch, bake them, then keep in the fridge to take to work or put in your kid’s lunches. Or, they would make a great, healthy appetizer idea!

Could these be made in a baking pan? 8×8/9×9?
