This is a guest post from my friend Louise at, and I think you’ll love this recipe. I of course LOVE how simple it is.   Louise also just released her new cookbook, which comes with some amazing recipes and a bunch of awesome bonuses - click here to check it out! It's full of more easy and simple recipes like this. Stay tuned for another recipe from her next week! 

Here’s Louise…

Jeremy (my husband) and I love simple recipes.  The fewer ingredients and steps, the better.  We used to make a lot of very complicated dishes, but we kept finding that we’d often run out of time to make those complex recipes.

When you taste this dish, you’ll understand why it doesn’t need any additional ingredients. The apple and carrots soften, and their natural sugars ooze out to mingle with the coconut oil making you savor every single bite of this dish.

The whole dish takes just 20 minutes, and it’s super easy to double or triple in size if you have a lot of people around for dinner.  

Perfect as a tasty side dish, a snack, or for breakfast!

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 2 servings

Serving Size: 1 plate


1 medium carrot, shredded

1 apple, peeled and shredded

3 Tablespoons (45 ml) coconut oil for cooking

Cinnamon (for sprinkling)

Fresh ginger (for topping)


Squeeze out any excess water from the carrots and apples.

Mix the apples and carrots and pour 3 Tablespoons (45 ml) of coconut oil into the skillet/frying-pan.

Form 2 large flat patties in the skillet/frying-pan and fry on medium heat (2-3 minutes on each side – be careful when turning and check it doesn't burn).  Use a spatula to press down on the patties to help them cook better.

Serve with a sprinkling of cinnamon and freshly grated ginger.
