Sweet potatoes are loaded with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, making these fritters a great way to get some nutrition onto your dinner plate. This crisp and savory way to serve sweet potatoes puts a fun spin on an old favorite ingredient that goes with just about any meal!

Coconut oil is recommended here for pan frying because it remains stable at high temperatures, unlike olive oil. Another alternative if you don’t use coconut oil is to use avocado oil, which is also stable at high temperatures.

For short-cut cooking, bake the sweet potatoes in the microwave until tender, then peel when cool enough to handle. Microwave ovens vary, so check your manufacturer’s guidelines for tips on baking potatoes in the microwave.

Serve these delicious fritters with roasted pork or chicken.

Crisp Savory Sweet Potato Fritters
  • Yields 4
    Servings
  • 15 minutes
    Prep time
  • 30 minutes
    Total time

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup Gluten Free Cornmeal
  • ¼ cup Gluten Free Flour Blend
  • ¾ tsp. Baking powder
  • 2 cups of cooked, mashed sweet potatoes
  • ½ cup Minced onion
  • 1 tsp. Honey
  • ½ tsp. Paprika
  • ½ tsp. Salt
  • 1/8 tsp. Ground cayenne pepper, optional
  • 1 large Egg
  • ½ cup Milk (use dairy or plant-based milk of your choice)
  • 2-3 Tbsp. Coconut (or other) oil, for frying
  • Optional garnish: Fresh cilantro

Instructions

  1. In a small mixing bowl, combine cornmeal, flour and baking powder and stir with a wire whisk until blended; set aside.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine potato, onion, honey, and seasonings; stir well.
  3. Add egg and milk, stirring until smooth.
  4. Add dry ingredients and stir just until blended.
  5. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat for each batch. Working with small portions of the mixture (2 tablespoons to ¼ cup portions), spoon fritters into pan and flatten slightly with back of spoon. Cooking only 4 or 5 fritters at a time makes it easier to turn them, and also helps them cook more evenly.
  6. Cook fritters 1-2 minutes on each side until they are crisp and golden brown, then transfer each batch to a paper towel lined plate. Serve immediately.
