Cinnamon Carrot Fritters


2013/10/03 by nikkiledford


I like these little fritters for a few reasons.

1. They are low in sugar which means that all you Sugar-Detoxers can have them.

2. They are an alternative to the Broccoli Pancakes which may not be suitable for people who have a FODMAP problem or who just generally don’t digest broccoli well.

3. While I hesitate to called them “pumpkin-spiced”, they do have a wonderful, fall-flavor. Bring it on, Autumn!

Now let’s talk options.

More Sweet. Use grated yam or drizzle a bit of maple syrup in the batter or on the fritters afterwards.

More Savory. Replace the spices with onion powder, chopped cilantro, cayenne, and some garlic.

Less Nutty: You could probably use a few tablespoons of coconut flour or just omit it all together. They will more likely to fall apart so flip carefully. Refer to my other shredded pancakes recipe.

Cinnamon Carrot Fritters

2 1/2 c. grated carrot (I used about 5-6 medium-sized carrots)
3/4 c. almond flour
2 eggs
1 Tbsp. cinnamon*
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground ginger*
1/2 tsp. ground cloves*

1/4 c. oil/fat of choice

Optional toppings:
mashed dates, nut butter (make sure you balance your omegas later…), grass-fed butter, avocado, fried eggs…

*you could also use pumpkin pie spice in lieu of the cinn/ginger/cloves combo.

  1. In a bowl, combine all ingredients until well mixed.
  2. In a large skillet, heat some coconut oil (Or tallow, ghee, grass-fed butter, red palm oil, etc.) on medium-high heat.
  3. To test the oil, take a pinch of carrot and drop it in the skillet. If it sizzles, it’s ready.
  4. Form palm-sized pancakes with the carrot batter and lay in the hot oil. Cook until golden and then flip.
  5. Serve with topping, use as a “bun” for your fried egg, or just eat plain on the go!

Stopped by @lazyacresmarket_encinitas and grabbed this tonic to keep my immune system solid while my little guy fights a cold. I'm not gonna lie, it doesn't taste that good, but has some crazy good ingredients and so far I'm keeping all the germs from taking me down 👊🏻 Not upset about my breakfast situation.
GF sourdough open faced breakfast sandwich and bone broth with all the immune boosting goodies. #goodonya #northcountysd #needonedowntown PREPARATION// One thing I never regret;
Taking time to meal prep for myself. It's so much easier to make healthy food choices and lose the stress over time spent in the kitchen when you're prepared! #mealpreppin #gingerorangepork #slowcookerftw If you didn't catch my live video yesterday about my grocery shopping (riveting... I know.), I gave the low down on why and how I make my own nut butter.
1. It's generally cheaper.
2. It tastes way better.
3. Easy to do in a vitamix or food processor. Just have patience because you're not making a smoothie, you're grinding nuts until they release their oils and smooth out.
Need another reason to make your own? 
4. Customization
This batch had a touch of vanilla and cinnamon and I can easily control the amount of saltiness.
You guyyyyysssss. It's so good and easy. Be like Nike and #justdoit
