These were really cool – it’s like a sweet potato cake meets cornbread. Got thumbs up from all of our family and then I took some on a hike the next day and it was a great snack! Inspired by this recipe.
- 1 lb sweet potato, peeled and chopped
- 1 Tbsp ground flax
- 3 Tbsp warm water
- Heaping 1/4 cup diced onion
- Heaping 1/4 cup diced bell pepper of your choice – green or red
- 3/4 cup cornmeal
- 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 3/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp chili powder
Prepare sweet potato for mashing however you wish – boiling, steaming, microwaving. Then mash with a potato masher.
Mix ground flax and water in a small bowl and set aside for several minutes.
Saute onion and pepper in a little oil, water or broth until soft.
Preheat oven to 425. Combine: mashed sweet potato, flax & water, cooked onion and pepper, and all remaining ingredients in a bowl. Stir well until everything is combined.
Form patties with the mixture of your desired size – making them about 1/2″ thick or so. On a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper, spray with a little oil and then place patties for baking. Bake 10 minutes then flip. Bake another ~5 minutes. They should be firm to the touch. Serve and enjoy!
