One week to go until Valentine’s Day & I am on a pretty sweet mission to share a new line-up of easy, healthy & delicious recipes to impress that special someone or to just treat yourself. Here goes the first one- enjoy!
Stole (many) a spiced cinnamon sweet potato fritter my heart. And the heart of everyone who tried this.
No, but seriously- is there anything better than a hot & perfectly crispy on the outside, tender on the inside sweet potato fritter? What if I told you they’re spiced with ground cinnamon, fancy molasses, nutmeg, ground vanilla bean, a pinch of sea salt & topped with homemade coconut whipped cream, dark chocolate chips, or walnuts & golden raisins? Um, yeah- I didn’t think so.
It’s time we use our veggies to make dessert! But not just any dessert- this delectably delicious sweet spin on latkes. We’re all used to and love traditional, savory potato latkes or fritters. But this my friends; is an entirely different latke or fritter. The coconut sugar, the molasses or pure maple, the cinnamon, pure vanilla & nutmeg give it a flavor that’s like nothing you’ve ever tried. It’s sweet, it’s rich, but it’s also healthy & highly addictive.
They’re lightly fried in cold pressed coconut oil for that subtly sweet/crispy texture. These are made with a pinch of coconut flour which makes them perfectly paleo/ gluten-free, too. And to finish them off, you must enjoy them warm with a dollop of fresh (dairy-free) coconut whipped cream for the win. Factor in a sprinkling of walnuts, mini dark chocolate chips or golden raisins & you get an A for presentation.
They take mere minutes to prep- especially if you have a state of the art kitchen hack up your sleeve. I love my Veggie Bullet because of its 3-in-1 function: spiralizer, shredder & slicer. Best of all, it makes all of the above happen in a quick, effortless, no-mess situation. Zero-mess & half the prep time. Who’s in? I experimented with both the spiralizer & shredder functions for this recipe. It was a tough call. (I also ate way more fritters than I could possibly count. That part wasn’t particularly tough.
The final verdict: I enjoy shredded potato fritters more. It’s easier for them to cook through than the spiralized ones, which may be- ahem a little too crunchy for some. In the end, it was a total texture-call. You guys can go for either and not be disappointed. That’s the humble opinion of this test-kitchen gal.
Y’all ready for this one? Here we go… Share them with those you love, they’ll love you a little more for these! xx
