Sweet Potato Fritter

If you’re looking for a delicious healthy whole food plant based snack you’ve come to the right place. These sweet potato fritters are incredible. They burst with flavour and the batter adds such a nice texture. These are great sandwich fillings or even just on their own in your lunch box. We highly recommend trying them.
And here is a link to our hummus 3 ways recips as a delicious accompaniment:
Hummus 3 ways
