Carrot Pancakes (just like Potato Pancakes)

Total Time

I ate these growing up. I don't know if my Mom happened to be out of potatoes one day and just tried carrots or if she got them out of a book. She doesn't remember, but I seem to remember her just substituting the carrots because we were out of potatoes. They're much better when you keep the carrots and onion almost to equal amounts

Wonderful recipe, Donna! These turned out just like potato pancakes, but with a slightly different flavor (yummy) and a nice color. So easy to make with my food processor- just dumped the carrot and onion in.

My daughter loves carrots and pancakes but I never thought of mixing these two together. Thanks for a great idea.

These have a lovely flavor. I used only egg whites and only pan spray (instead of oil) to make them healthier. Great taste!
