Super tasty, easy, and healthy Cheddar Cheese & Pea Fritters that are gluten-free and baby led weaning + kid-friendly to boot!
These crunchy & wholesome fritters are a great way to use that bag of peas sitting in your freezer! And with the addition of yogurt for some extra heartiness and calcium, these fritters make a great snack or meal any time of day...and are especially enjoyed by the little ones!
Tips for making Gluten-Free Cheddar Green Pea Fritters:
Do you want to make these delicious fritters baby friendly? Instead of just mixing the ingredients, blend them in a food processor or blender until smooth before cooking!
You can replace the cheddar with any shredded cheese of your liking.
I do not recommend replacing the flour with another, as the texture would be completely different. I like to use this gluten-free all purpose flour.
You can play around with the spices here, though I find them complementary to the peas and cheddar.
You can use fresh chopped parsley rather than dried.
I haven’t tested it, but I find most fritter recipes to work well with replacing the egg with a flax egg, if so desired.
These gluten-free fritters taste best freshly cooked, but in a pinch you can prepare ahead of time and refrigerate for up to 5 days. To re-heat, place into a 400 F oven and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until warmed throughout.
