Easy Sweet Potato Fritters

I just realized that there are a lot of sweet potato recipes on my blog.  I do love sweet potatoes.

This recipes was inspired by a recent trip to Bolder.  My friend Monica and I went out to lunch and they had these hugs sweet potato fritters on the counter with a marshmallow topping.   We each ate one but OMG they were filling and the topping was really sweet.

I decide to make my healthy (Paleo) version.  My husband just loved these and asked me to save 2 for breakfast with his eggs in the morning.  I even gave one to Jake - of course he just loved it too!  

Enjoy!  These are super yummy

I just used one large sweet potato and made about 8 fitters.  Just a FYI



  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • Coconut oil or Olive oil


  1. Clean the sweet potato then poke a few holes using a fork.  Place on a microwave safe plate (or a paper plate) and microwave until soft.  (My microwave took 4 minutes).  Let cool for a few minutes.

  2. Remove skin from potato then scoop out the flesh and place in a large mixing bowl.  Add in butter, salt, pepper and thyme.  Combine well; until smooth.

  3. Whisk in eggs then add in tapioca flour and combine well.

  4. Heat a sauté pan over medium-high heat.  Once the pan is hot add in oil.  Let the oil get very hot.  Add in a large tablespoon scoop of the sweet potato mixture and carefully add to the hot pan.  Press the back of the spoon down on the mixture to create your fritter (almost like a small pancake).  

  5. Cook the first side for about 2-3 minutes or until brown then carefully and cook the other side for about 2-3 minutes.  Remove from pan and place on a paper towel lined plate and finish cooking in batches.  

    Cindy's Tip:  You can make these in advance and just warm in an oven before serving.
