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!

  1. It is an original way to give vegetables to kids, I really like it!

    1. I think it's a great dose of vitamins which kids will actually love!

  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. :)

  3. I so have to try this! Looks delicious and healthy!

    1. It is! Let me know if you try this :)
