Zucchini Fritters with Avocado Aioli (Paleo and Gluten-Free)

I had some delicious raw zucchini noodles the other day made my a friend (who's a vegan). Inspired by her recipe, I bought some zucchini at the supermarket and made some myself. Needless to say, I enjoyed it very much but my family wasn't as enthusiastic about it as I was, so I was left with quite an amount of zucchini noodles. I decided to make these easy zucchini fritters with it and they were delicious little morsels of vegetables (or fruit since they have seeds)!

The avocado aioli is really a misnomer since aioli is mayonnaise made with oil, eggs and lemon juice or vinegar, but the creaminess from this avocado aioli comes from buttery avocado instead.

I had these zucchini fritters with avocado aioli for a light guilt-free lunch but I think they would make a great side to a fish entree too.
