With just 5 ingredients, these (gluten free) savory sweet potato cakes make it easy to start your day with veggies! But they're not just for breakfast - see more ideas in the post!

Course Breakfast, dinner, lunch
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 6 patties


  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and finely grated (I use a box grater)
  • 1 Tbsp butter (or olive oil)
  • 2 egg whites (or 1 egg)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 Tbsp almond flour


  1. Peel and grate the sweet potato.  Melt the butter in a skillet over medium.  Add the grated sweet potato and cook, stirring, for about 5 minutes. (I taste it to make sure its cooked/softened.)

  2. Remove from the heat and transfer the sweet potato to a bowl.  Add the egg whites, seasonings, and almond flour.

  3. Wipe out the skillet and heat over medium.  Add a little butter or olive oil for cooking, then form the mixture into patties and add to the skillet.  Cook for 3 - 4 minutes per side, flipping halfway through.

  4. Remove from the skillet and serve.  I like to top with an egg or avocado (or both!)
