Zucchini Fritters - Baked

*1 medium zucchini, grated
*1 teaspoon salt
*1/2 small onion, finely chopped
*1/2 cup whole wheat flour
*1/2 teaspoon baking powder
*1 tablespoon milk
*1 egg
*Fresh ground pepper, to taste

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lay the grated zucchini on a layer of paper towels and sprinkle with salt. Allow to sit for 5 minutes and transfer to a strainer. Using a wooden spoon or spatula, press out as much liquid as you can.

2. Transfer to a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients. Stir until just combined.

3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and drop spoonfuls of the mixture a couple inches apart. Bake for 10 minutes, flip and bake for 10 more until both sides are golden brown. Serve with sour cream or yogurt if desired.

4. NOTE: For crispier fritters, spray or brush each fritter with a little olive oil just before flipping the first time, then spray the other side once flipped.

Yields: 4 servings . Serving Size: About 3 fritters
