Carrot Fritters

I found this recipe, and I doctored it a little bit to be better. I'm also going to play with other veggies in it...maybe peppers and onions ;)

This recipe Makes 4 Servings, and it is 1 point per serving, which is a good amount. Very Very Yummy! Spray the Pan with Pam real good between each Fritter.
