How To Make Keto Zucchini Taco Shells

These delicious taco shells are perfect for any diet.

While we recommend the keto version to limit carbs, we also provide a vegan and paleo recipe option for those who don’t eat eggs or dairy.


  • Grated Zucchini – make sure you pat dry the zucchini with absorbent paper or in a towel to remove all the water/juice from the vegetable. Zucchinis are keto-friendly vegetables that you can use to make many delicious zucchini recipes.
  • Grated cheese – mozzarella provides the best texture. If you are on a vegan or paleo diet, use arrowroot flour or tapioca flour. Most cheeses are keto-friendly, learn why!
  • Egg or chia egg if you are on a paleo vegan diet. A chia egg is simply the combination of 1 tablespoon of chia seed with 3 tablespoons of water. Stir and set aside for 10 minutes until it has an egg-like texture.
  • Coconut Flour – make sure you use fresh coconut flour with no lumps. Learn how to choose the best low-carb flour.
  • Spices – it is optional to add spices to your batter but it can add delicious extra flavors. The best addition is 1/2 teaspoon of garlic salt, paprika, oregano, or cumin.

These tacos shells are soft, flexible, and easy to roll. You can fill them with any Mexican filling like chicken, avocado, shredded lettuce, or tomatoes.

Keto tacos shells

  • 1 cup Grated Zucchini packed, squeezed in a towel to remove all zucchini juice – about 4 small size zucchini
  • ½ cup Grated Mozzarella hard mozzarella, not soft or grated cheddar
  • 1 large Beaten Egg
  • 2 tablespoons Coconut Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Oregano
  • ½ teaspoon Garlic Salt or sea salt

Paleo taco shells (cheese-free)

  • 1 cup Grated Zucchini packed, squeezed in a towel to remove all zucchini juice – about 4 small size zucchini
  • cup Arrowroot Flour packed – arrowroot flour is very fine and volatile and to exactly measure the quantity I recommend to use this measuring spoon.
  • 1 large Beaten Egg *see vegan note
  • 2 tablespoons Coconut Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Oregano
  • ½ teaspoon Garlic Salt

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  • Prepare a baking tray covered with baking paper. Slightly oil the paper with olive oil to prevent the tacos shells from sticking to the paper. Set aside.
  • Wash the zucchinis, keep the skin on and use a grater to finely grate the zucchinis. Squeeze the grated zucchinis with your hands to extract the juice. The best is to wrap grated zucchini in a clean towel and squeeze them to release all the liquid. Discard the zucchini juice. Press the grated zucchini into a measuring cup until it reaches 1 cup.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add grated zucchini, beaten egg, grated mozzarella cheese (or arrowroot flour if paleo), coconut flour, oregano, and garlic salt.
  • Combine all the ingredients with a spoon first, then use your hands to squeeze the batter and make sure all the ingredients come in contact. The fiber from coconut flour will absorb the moisture slightly dried the batter. The batter stays moist but not runny. If runny, add 1 extra tablespoon of coconut flour. This can happen if you didn't remove all the zucchini juice properly.
  • Scoop about 3 tablespoons of batter and place on the prepared tray.
  • Using your finger, press the batter until it forms a thin circle. Make sure there is no hole left in the batter or the shells may be fragile.
  • Repeat until you form 6 medium 10-cm tortillas of or 4 large as you like. The nutrition panel is for 6!
  • Bake for 20-30 minutes or until the shells get brown on the side and hold together.
  • Cool down on a rack to keep them moist.
  • Eat hot or cold with Mexican filling or roasted vegetables.

Storage and freezing

  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
  • Rewarm filled in a sandwich press or rewarm the single taco shell in a pan, 1 minute on both sides before using it as a shell.
  • You can freeze the shells in an airtight container, placing a piece of parchment paper between each shell to prevent them from sticking to each other.

    • There is two recipe options in the recipe card. The first one is the keto option it doesn’t use arrowroot flour. The second one is the paleo one, it doesn’t use cheese by arrowroot flour. Use the first recipe option for low carb keto ! Enjoy, XOXO Carine

    I just made the zucchini taco shells! They turned out nicely! I haven’t made any tacos out of them yet, I’m not sure they will last that long! They’re delicious by themselves! Thank you!

  2. I am so happy to find this, I cant eat alot of things and the options are great thanks. ( I cant have wheat, gluten, egg, no form of dairy at all, no nuts either. So I’m pretty stuck.

    Made these today. Salted the zucchini as per one of the comments. Worked perfectly and we both loved it. Used as an accompaniment to soup. One pop up message appears in the middle of text when trying to read or write this comment, on iPad, which is a little annoying. Recipe great!

    • Thanks for the lovely feedback. Usually all pop up can be closed by a little star on top right of the pop up. Can you tell me more about it and send me screen shoot on my email or instagram so I can help fixing that, as this shouldn’t happen of course! Thank you, Carine

    • There is absolutely no problem to make this recipe salt free! Salt is use to flavor the tortillas but the recipe will perfectly work without it. Maybe use garlic powder to add a little flavor without adding sodium. Enjoy the recipe. XOXO Carine.

    • I wouldn’t say yes as I did not try myself. But, I wouldn’t suggest to sub for almond meal anyway because it contains less fiber than coconut flour and it won’t hold together as a tortilla. The combo of coconut flour and arrowroot flour is the best to achieve that texture. XOXO Carine.

  4. I’m going to try this with the coconut flour and oat flour since that’s what I have hopefully it works ??

    • I am sure it will ! Enjoy the recipe and report back ! I love to hear you story on my recipes. XOXO Carine.

    These are so good that I’ve made them twice in the past 7 days! Next time, I will definitely double the recipe. I sprinkled the grated zucchini with a little salt so they would give up more moisture and let them drain in a strainer for about 30 min and then squeezed out the remaining water. I love carbs, but actually preferred these to the flour tortillas my boys were eating.

    • Thanks for your lovely feedback! I am so glad you love them and I adore your little note on zucchini !So clever 🙂 Thanks for taking a minute to share with us. Have a great day, XOXO Carine.

    Hello, I’ve been struggling to find a recipe for a sandwich wrap that is approved for an AIP diet (with eggs reintroduced). All of them left much to be desired until this recipe! It’ll be so nice to have a food that tastes so good that I don’t feel deprived!

    • I am so glad in works for your diet! I am not dieting but LOVE to make recipes that help everyone in a stage of their life. Enjoy the blog my friend. xoxo Carine.

    I really really wanted this recipe to work for me but it just didn’t. I squeezed as much moisture as I could from the zucchini but I just don’t think it was enough. By the time I realized it only option was to add more coconut flour. They patted out nicely, just like the picture, but once in the oven, they never set. They just didn’t cook. My plan is to try again once my feelings aren’t hurt anymore…haha…but that may take a while.

      I added a little salt to the zucchini after grating to get them to give up more water and then drained them in a fine strainer and then squeezed out the rest of the water. Worked like a charm.

    • Hi, I never had any problem with this recipe, that is so weird. Did you use a egg or chia egg? If your batter is too wet it is better to add more arrowroot flour because coconut flour tend to make food crumbly. I wish you give it a second try, I never had an issue with this recipe or read any negative comment about it. I am sure it will work next time! xoxo Carine.

    • Hi, You must use coconut flour in this recipe it helps absorbing the extra water from the zucchini. Enjoy the tortillas. xoxo Carine.

    I made this for dinner… awesome!! I substituted
    Bobs red mill gluten free flour( red bag) for the arrowroot because I didn’t have any. I made a wrap
    My filling was chicken salad with avocado
    and cole slaw. In the chart you should change
    The cooking time to 20-30 mins from 15 minutes. I can’t wait to make again!

    • Thanks for this lovely comment. I am so glad you love the recipe. I usually don’t have any problem with the cooking time using the original recipe. It may have take longer as you choose to use a different flour. Thanks for reading the blog! xoxo Carine.

    Have you ever tried this with fresh frozen zucchini? We have a ton still frozen in our freezer from our garden and I’m wondering if they would work here?

    • Hi, I wouldn’t say yes as I did no try myself. Look at the recipe video the trick is to squeeze out the zucchini water to make soft taco shells. So if you freeze grated zucchini make sure you pat dry the zucchini very well with absorbent paper before using in this recipe. Enjoy the recipe on the blog! Carine.

    • Hi Rosy, I did not create this recipe regarding a specific diet. It is a healthy tortilla recipe to add veggie in your diet using wholesome nourishing ingredients only. I am not familiar with the diet you mentioned above so I would not say yes or no about eating those lovely zucchini tortillas. I would recommend you to cross check the ingredient list of my recipe with the ingredients allowed in your diet to ensure it fit! Enjoy the blog, Carine.
