When you’re itching for a snack, look no further. These little sweet potato tots are seriously dangerous, and you will probably gobble them up in one sitting without even knowing it. But that’s okay! They’re made with just a few ingredients and pack a nutritious punch from all the goodness that sweet potatoes contain.

These are honestly the real deal. They have just enough crunch from a light fry, they’re packed with flavor, AND they are the perfect size for a quick bite-sized snack. You really can’t go wrong here.

Want to make them vegan? Just substitute the egg for a flax egg (Mix 1 tbsp. flaxseed meal with 3 tbsp. water and let sit for at least 15 minutes). Finish this recipe off with the perfect sauce to dip your tots in. We made a spicy mayo with Primal Kitchen’s paleo-friendly mayo and hot sauce.


1 large sweet potato, peeled

1 egg

1/4 cup (30g) paleo flour

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1/4 teaspoon paprika

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

3 cups oil, for deep frying* (we used walnut oil to add a nice and nutty flavor)



You’ve got all the ingredients. You’re ready to go. Then get cooking!
