1 Tbl coconut flour
1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp dried parsley
Salt & pepper to taste

Combine the zucchini, sweet potato and egg in a medium bowl.  In a small bowl, mix the coconut flour and spices together.  Add the dry ingredients to the zucchini mixture and stir until fully combined.  Heat the ghee and olive oil in a medium nonstick pan.  Divide the mixture into four equal portions and drop into the pan, pressing down with a fork until a 1/2 inch thick cake is formed.  Cook on medium heat until golden and crisp, then flip carefully and cook the other side.  Remove to a plate lined with paper towels to drain.  Season with an additional sprinkle of kosher salt.  Serve hot.
