We love these sweet potato fritters – they have just a handful of wholefood ingredients and they are so easy to whip up.

Sweet potato frittersSimply grate some sweet potato, mix in an egg and coriander, then fry up in batches! These tasty fritters make the perfect weekend brunch dish.

Serve these fritters up for your mates or just cook a small batch if you’re flying solo. They look impressive, even though they are ready in no time at all.

We love these fritters topped with a big dollop of smashed avo, which is full of good healthy fats. Plus, sweet potato is a low-GI source of carbs, so it’s great to eat after a morning workout. Also, sweet potato is packed full of Vitamin A, which promotes healthy eyes and skin, and Vitamin C, which helps you maintain a healthy immune system.

These fritters are delicious paired with wilted greens or some scrambled eggs, too. You can also try them for lunch or a light dinner – so add them to your recipe repertoire ASAP! For another great brunch for dinner recipe, try our low-carb green shakshuka.
