Paleo Pumpkin, Carrot and Bacon Fritters

Do you know what! These paleo pumpkin, carrot and bacon fritters are delicious! Perfect for weekend breakfast (or any meal really!). We made them with our mini merrymaker (aka our intern!) and she loved them too! 

We think they’d make the best addition to a brunch gathering. You can definitely make them the night before and serve them cold or make a big batch and keep them warm in the oven before your guests arrive! Serve with guacamole (yum)! Pretty sure these paleo pumpkin, carrot and bacon fritters are going to be on high rotation in merrymaker kitchen!

Always merrymaking,

Merrymaker Tip
  1. We served ours with guacamole and they were delish! Next time we're thinking we might add a side of grilled veggies or extra eggs and bacon!

  1. Mmm, these sound good! How long do you think they would keep in the fridge? Do you think they would freeze ok? Thanks 🙂

    Hi Megan! They are so delish! We’ve never frozen them but we’re sure they’d be ok! They would keep for at least 4 days in an air tight container in the fridge. 🙂

  4. Could I ask you which brand of bacon you are using? I can’t seem to find ANY bacon in Sydney that would have no sugar added.

  6. I make something very similar to these and they are great. I use them mainly as a base (like I would have used bread) for eggs and avo for eg. I don’t even add almond meal – just the grated veg, eggs and spices. ( and a good way to sneak in more greens- I do finely cut spinach or silverbeet)
    YAY!! yummo

  8. Am definitely going to try these! Is the almond flour used to help bind the mixture? If nuts aren’t an option, could I use coconut flour or something else? Thanks!
