Sweet Potato Cakes

All this recipe needs is sweet potatoes (or yams) and eggs. How simple is that?

I love this recipe because it is an easy way to get a good mix of carbs and proteins and you can make it sweet by adding cinnamon or a sweetener of your choice or savory by adding garlic or cayenne pepper. The options are endless really.

I also like to give this recipe to clients who are not big fans of eggs but are still trying to get protein into their diets during breakfast meals. Or anyone who loves using eggs for that matter.


  • 1 large sweet potato or yam
  • 2 eggs (or 1 egg and 1/3 cup egg whites)
  • sweet (cinnamon and sugar) or savory (garlic, salt and pepper) seasonings


  1. Peel potato
  2. Grate.
  3. Mix together with eggs.
  4. Choose seasonings
  5. Cook like pancakes.
  6. Enjoy!

Mix together.

Cook like pancakes. I recommend flattening them with the back of a measuring cup. The more even they cook.
