  • 1/2 cup mashed sweet potato the flesh from 1 medium-small cooked sweet potato
  • 2 eggs
  • oil or butter for cooking (I used butter flavored coconut oil)
  • Optional Seasonings
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • pinch of ground ginger
  • pinch of allspice
  • pinch of salt


  1. Whisk together the sweet potato and eggs until well-combined. Add seasonings, if desired, and stir. Heat oil or butter over medium-low heat (I prefer coconut oil). Drop the sweet potato mixture by the tablespoon and cook for 3-5 minutes. Flip each cake and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes, until lightly golden brown on the outside and cooked through. Optional topping ideas: butter, nut butter, sunflower seed butter, or maple syrup. They are also good plain! Enjoy
