Okra Fritters {THM-S, Low Carb, Gluten Free}

Savory, tender fritters fried to perfection in coconut oil, and studded with beautiful little pieces of super-food – okra!
Course: Side Dish
Cuisine: American


  • 1 Cup Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 Cup Almond Flour
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Pepper
  • 2 Cups Frozen Okra thawed and coarsely chopped
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 3 Tablespoons Half & Half
  • 1 Tablespoon White Vinegar


  • Heat coconut oil in a large skillet (I used my cast iron skillet) over medium heat.
  • Mix Half & Half with Vinegar (this should thicken the Half & Half until it is a similar consistency to buttermilk)
  • In a large bowl, mix Half & Half mixture with almond flour, salt, pepper, okra, and egg. You should have a thick batter.
  • When oil is hot, drop batter by 1/8 cup (2 Tablespoons) into the skillet and flatten slightly.
  • Fry until golden brown on one side, then flip and fry on the second side until golden brown. (Depending on how hot your oil is, it may take 2-3 minutes per side.)
  • Remove from oil and sprinkle with salt. (I like Himalayan Pink Salt.)
  • Drain on paper towels.
