Quick and easy healthy carrot and sweet potato fritters that can be vegan and made without egg. My kids love this recipe, plus it’s Whole30 and Paleo.



For the Fritters

  • 2 cups shredded carrots (about 3 medium-size carrots)
  • 2 cups shredded sweet potatoes (about 1 large sweet potato)
  • 12 tsp of salt, to taste
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 2/3 cup flour (I used almond flour)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • up to 1/3 cup coconut oil (for frying)

For the Dipping Sauce

  • 1/4 cup mayo (I use homemade fail-proof mayo)
  • 1/4 tsp lemon juice
  • up to 1/4 tsp salt
  • up to 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • up to 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 4 green onions, sliced (optional, for garnish and color)


For the Fritters

  1. Combine shredded carrots, shredded sweet potatoes and spices in a large bowl. Use your hands to mix well so the spices are evenly distributed.
  2. Add the flour and again, mix well so it’s evenly distributed.
  3. Meanwhile, preheat a skillet to medium heat and melt 2-3 Tbsp coconut oil.
  4. Crack the two eggs into a mug and whip using a fork. Add the eggs to the vegetables and use your hands to mix everything together well.
  5. When the skillet is hot (test a drop of water to see if it will sizzle), use slightly less than 1/4 cup of mixture to make a patty in your hands. Make sure the patty is uniform in thickness throughout so it cooks evenly.
  6. Place the patty on the skillet and cook undisturbed for 2-3 minutes, until the bottom is golden brown. Use a pancake flipper to carefully lift the fritter up and flip over. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes until both sides are evenly cooked.
  7. Repeat with the remaining fritter mixture.
  8. Put cooked fritters on a plate lined with paper towels and serve hot.

For the Dipping Sauce

  1. While the fritters are cooking, combine the mayo, lemon juice, 1/8 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp garlic powder, 1/8 tsp onion powder and green onions (if using) in a small bowl. Stir well so the flavors can combine.
  2. Taste and adjust seasonings as desired when the fritters are done.
