I’m in the midst of a typical busy week with my “day job” (flute professor in a university music department) keeping me out of the house during the day time, and my “night job” (orchestra member) taking me away in the evenings for rehearsals and a concert tomorrow night. I’m very thankful, however, that I get to spend the day home with my boys today. It has allowed us some kitchen creativity and fun family time!
First of all, the fruit kabobs are not a recipe as much as they are an activity. My 3 year old LOVES to help, so before I got my fritters started, I cut up a bunch of fruit (grapes, kiwi, bananas, pineapple, and pears), handed him some kabob sticks, and put him to work! 🙂 He happily threaded fruit on sticks while I worked in the kitchen, and he was delighted to be my helper!
Here’s my recipe (of sorts) for the fritters – please keep in mind that I hate to measure, so amounts are approximate.
Cinnamon Carrot Fritters
3-4 cups shredded carrots
2 tablespoons cinnamon
3 tablespoons melted coconut oil
1/4 cup coconut flour
several dashes of sea salt
Mix all ingredients together and cook in small, flattened patties on an electric griddle until done. (Mine took about 4-5 minutes on each side.) Makes 8-10 fritters.
If you want them a little sweeter, feel free to drizzle on some pure maple syrup or raw, unfiltered honey. I like mine as is, or with a little butter on top. These also make an excellent sandwich with bacon in the middle. YUM!
