  • Yield: 10-12 fritters 1x


These baked sweet potato fritters have a spicy kick thanks to cumin and cayenne pepper. You can serve them as an appetizer, a salad topper or even a veggie burger.


  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • 1 pound sweet potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon cumin 
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder 
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt 
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced 
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten 
  • 1 tablespoon minced chives


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Peel the sweet potatoes. Spiralize them or grate with the large holes of a box grater. In a large bowl, stir together the sweet potatoes, cumin, chili powder, salt, pepper, scallions and eggs.
  3. Scoop the sweet potatoes by the heaping 1/4-cup-fill. Press into a 3-1/2-inch diameter disc, spacing 2 inches apart on the sheet pan.
  4. Bake until golden brown at the edges, flipping halfway through baking, about 20-25 minutes. Sprinkle with chives before serving.
