Sweet Potato Tots
What You’ll Need:
*I lightly pulsed my oats in a blender to create more of “breadcrumb” consistency. Careful not to over blend them into a flour consistency!
What to Do:
Step 1: Preheat oven to 375F.
Step 2: Pierce sweet potatoes with fork and place directly into microwave. Cook for about 6-10 minutes, checking occasionally. Sweet potatoes are done when you can easily poke through them with a fork*
Step 4: Remove sweet potatoes from the microwave and allow to cool before handling them.
Step 5: Slice the sweet potatoes in half lengthwise and use a spoon to scoop out the insides. You can throw away the skins
Step 6: Place the sweet potatoes in a large mixing bowl.
Step 7: Add egg yolk, basil, oats, pepper, garlic, and salt.
Step 8: Combine with a spoon until it forms a mash that you can easily handle with your hands to shape small tots. (not too wet and the dough should stay together easily)
Step 9: Line a baking tray with aluminum foil, spray lightly with coconut oil spray, and set aside
Step 10: Use your hands to shape the sweet potato tots and place them on the tray leaving half thumb space between each tots.
Step 11: Bake at 375F for 16-20 minutes or until the outside is crispy and slightly golden brown. The center will stay soft and moist.
