Carrot Fritters



I've been baking less sweets recently. I don't remember when I made a cake or cupcakes with a tall frosting for the last time. If I bake something sweet, it would probably contain honey instead of sugar and applesauce/bananas instead of butter. But to be honest, I can't describe how much I miss a fat, creamy and large cake. I guess it's time to check out the recipes and make one for myself. Ahh.. that's so dangerous. You see, I can't eat just one slice of cake. I can't eat just two. Sometimes even more. So it happens very often that my all day meals include cake, cupcakes and cookies. Sounds tempting, but not very healthy. And just because I can't survive without something sweet a day, I try to make things healthier. 

And now about these carrot fritters. This is a super simple recipe. You need no more than 5 or 10 minutes to mix it up and enjoy a healthy and delicious breakfast, supper or any time you wish. I have been making veggie pancakes very often recently and have written down lots of recipes. So make a batch of these and wait for the next!

Carrot Fritters

2small carrots, grated
2 garlic cloves, grated
1/2 onion, grated
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 heaping tbsp whole wheat flour
1 heaping tbsp all purpose flour

1)  In a medium bowl, mix together the carrots, onion and garlic. Mix in the eggs.

2) Add in the flour, chilli powder and salt. Mix to combine.

3) Heat the oil in a skillet. Fry the pancakes until golden brown on both sides. Serve with sour cream.

Makes 4 pancakes.

  2. I understand you sooo much!! Sometimes, when I bake something sweet, I serve on small pice, and when I can and it's cold, wrap the rest, for my boyfriend to drive his home. This way, his parents can eat too.

    I try to self-control, but sometimes is hard. ONce I made peanut butter cookies, and they were so good, that I only left 1 to my boyf!!
    And, yeah, even if you don't eat another thing, it's not healthy!!

    A year ago I prepared carrot fritters, and the weren'r work, I didnt't fry them because the batter hadn't good consistence, so we didn't eat them. I don't know if it was me, recipe, amounts, size of egg... It's time to give them new opportunity!

    1. It's funny that you left only one cookie for your boyfriend :D Personally, I wouldn't have left any! It's so difficult to leave one..

      Sometimes when the consistency is not right for me, or the veggies are too juicy, I just add some additional flour and it usually helps. :)
