Author Sonia! The Healthy Foodie


  • 500 g 1.2lb cauliflower, finely grated (about 1 medium head)
  • 1 carrot finely grated
  • 2 green onions finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper seeded and finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup raw unsalted sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup raw hazelnuts finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup finely shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 2 tbsp ground chia seeds
  • 2 large eggs
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme
  • 3/4 tsp Himalayan salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ground ground Ceylon cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika


  • Using a box grater or food processor, grate the cauliflower and carrot as finely as you can. (I used the fine grater disc of my food processor).
  • Transfer these to a large mixing bowl, add the rest of the ingredients and mix delicately with your fingers until well combined.
  • Form into 15 patties. Tip: using an ice cream scoop makes this job so much easier.
  • Heat a good amount of coconut oil in a frying pan set over medium heat and cook the fritters 6 to 8 at a time for 2 – 3 minutes on each side, until golden brown; keep warm while you cook the remaining fritters.
  • Serve warm, garnished with a generous dollop of paleo mayo and a few slices of jalapeno.
