Vegan keto zucchini baked fritters

This is one of my favorite dishes! I used to make zucchini fritters, before going keto, with the traditional Greek recipe of "kolokithokeftedes", which calls for wheat flour. After experimenting with various low carb ingredients to substitute the flour, I ended up with this recipe. Enjoy!
