I rarely cook carrots. They’re one of the few veggies that everyone in my family likes raw, so why mess with that?

But when I saw a recipe for carrot fritters in Savory Magazine, I was intrigued. My aversion to cooked carrots was overtaken by my curiosity about this idea. Nuts and chives and carrots together in one place? I had to try this.

Imagine my surprise when I couldn’t stop eating them! The sweet, savory, crunchy combination is so delicious.

I adapted the recipe according to what I had on hand, and I made them gluten-free. I’m so glad to have discovered this new side dish. I’ll be making it often when I get a big pile of carrots from my farm share this summer. They’ll be great to have on hand in the freezer for a night when I need an extra vegetable for dinner.

    I made them, but changed Recipe a bit. I used coconut flour and added cinnamon, nutmeg, 1/4c of currants and I fried them on low heat in coconut oil, till lightly browned. It took longer cooking on lower heat but I think the coconut oil tastes better to me. I didn’t have avacado oil and I cooked a few in olive oil and didn’t like flavor. My toddler grandson will mistake these for carrot cookies with ants in them. He calls currants ants. The pecans help flavor too!thx you for this recipe idea!

  2. These look amazing but I bet they taste even better. I just learned from one of my cooking magazines that when you grate carrots super fine they become very sweet – more so than slicing or dicing because more sugars are released. Bet that makes these fritters extra delicious. Love that you use avocado oil too – my favorite!
