Sometimes I have the weirdest thoughts on my mind right before I go to sleep. Very often they include food. And regulary I think of new weird combinations of ingredients. Last night I made up this recipe for carrot pancakes in my head – and of course I had to try it out this morning. I’m as surprised as anyone that they turned out so great!
Sunshine on a plate! Look at that color….
This is actually quicker than you think. Start by peeling some carrots and grating them finely. I had three carrots and ended up with about 250 ml (1 cup) grated carrot (slightly pressed together).
To the carrots add
- 5 eggs
- 3 tbsp’s coconut flour
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ – 1 tbsp honey (or leave out if you are careful about your sugar intake)
- and the peel of one lemon
And that’s it!
Now whisk together and get a pan out. I have one of those really nice pancake pans, but if you don’t you can just make smaller individual dots in a normal pan.
If you are lucky to have some left-over goose fat or bacon fat – Mmmmm! Fry the pancakes in that. Otherwise you could for example use butter, ghee or coconut oil. I’d probably go for coconut oil… when I’ve run out of goose fat
Over medium heat fry for a minute or two on each side and serve warm, with fresh fruit or berries and maybe a spoon of a 100% fruit spread – our favorite is apple-mango.
The batch made 14 pancakes. Not really enough for a family of four, so next time I’ll make more… They were that good!
