Paleo Sweet Potato Bacon Fritters Recipe

Paleo Sweet Potato Bacon Fritters Recipe


  • 2 medium orange Sweet potatoes, peeled and grated
  • 6 strips Bacon, cut into 2cm pieces
  • 2 Eggs, whisked
  • 3 Spring onions, chopped 
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 3 Tbsp Coconut flour
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Fry the bacon pieces over a medium heat. Remove with slotted spoon and set on paper towels to drain. Leave bacon fat in the pan.
  2. Place the shredded raw sweet potatoes in a mixing bowl.
  3. Add fried bacon, chopped spring onions, whisked eggs, coconut flour and salt and pepper. Mix everything together and combine well.
  4. To form fritters, scoop the mixture using a 1/4 measuring cup for each fritter. Place each scoop on some baking paper and gently flatten until each fritter is about 2cm thick.
  5. Add about 1/4 cup of olive oil to the frying pan with the remaining bacon fat to form a shallow layer of oil. Heat to medium-low and cook 3-4 fritters at a time, 3 minutes per side or until sweet potatoes have cooked through and developed a slight golden-brown colour.
  6. Remove fritters and set on paper towel to drain.

Serve and enjoy!
