Baby Marrow and Carrot Fritters / Patties (Dairy free, Gluten free, Grains free, Sugar free]


This is a veggie and egg sides or a main meal recipe that I have made often, tweaking as I go along, looking at ways of improving it each time, changing the seasoning ingredients to suit my mood and often making it spicy the way  enjoy most foods.

I have made these including crispy fried bacon in the ingredients, for a meatier option and for a fully vegan meal on my meat abstinence days, I have replaced the eggs with a chia seeds and water mix, that becomes a gelatinous state when soaked for 20 minutes.  It binds the ingredients in the same way as eggs do.

This works well for a healthy  breakfast or snack option too, easy to make up and may be adapted to suit individual tastes.



3-4 larger sized baby marrows, grated

1 carrot, grated

1-2 tsp freshly ground / chopped garlic

1/4 cup spring onions, chopped

1 -2 eggs, whisked

2-4 tblsp coconut flour

1/2 tsp Himalayan or Sea salt (to taste)

1 tsp paprika

Optional:  finely chopped onion, green chilli, fresh coriander, fresh herbs and seasoning as preferred, to taste

2-3 tsp coconut oil or extra virgin Olive oil to cook the fritters

Here’s How

  • Grate the baby marrow and carrot and chop the spring onions.
  • Place the grated baby in a colander over the sink. Add salt and gently toss to combine; let sit for 10 minutes. Using a clean dish towel or cheese cloth, drain zucchini completely by squeezing out the moisture.


  • In a medium-size bowl, whisk the egg, then add in the baby marrow, carrots, spring onions and mix


  • In a separate small bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients (coconut flour, salt and paprika)
  • Now pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients bowl. Stir, then combine mixture with hands
  • Heat the 2-3 tbs  oil of choice in a non-stick pan or electric griddle over medium heat
  • Using a 1/4-cup measuring cup for each fritter, scoop up the batter and form into about 6 individual patties or fritters
  • Carefully place 2-3 patties in the pan or griddle at a time with heated oil
  • Cook each patty for 3-4 minutes on one side, pressing down gently with a spatula, then flipping over and cooking the other side for an additional 3-4 minutes, until cooked and golden brown.


  • Serve hot and enjoy!
