03 May paleo sweet potato fritters
I’ve discovered a new gluten free, grain free alternative to wheat flour – would you believe it… banana flour! Yep, you heard correctly, it’s flour made from green bananas. And it’s awesome!
I’d heard really good things about the texture and versatility of this product, but I was yet to try it, so I contacted Mt Uncle’s Banana Flour to find my nearest stockist… and they offered to send me a pack for free. How cool is that?
First cab off the rank with my banana flour experimenting… paleo sweet potato fritters. Yum!
1 cup grated sweet potato
2 tbsp chopped fresh herbs (I used chives and parsley)
2 eggs, beaten
2 tbsp Mt Uncle’s banana flour
1 dessertspoon virgin coconut oil, for frying
Let’s do this!
Combine sweet potato, herbs, eggs, banana flour and salt in a bowl and stir until combined.
Over a medium heat, warm up your coconut oil in a large, flat frypan, and drop in tablespoonfuls of the fritter mix. Flatten down your fritters with the back of a spatula, and fry for about 5 minutes on each side, until golden brown.
Serve with salad, fermented veggies, or a dollop of coconut yoghurt (or all three!).
Makes 6 fritters.
