  • 2 medium sweet potatoes not skinned, washed
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast flakes
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
  • 1 tablespoon almond flour or flour of your choice
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup panko crumbs regular or gluten-free


  • Heat your oven to 375F. Spray a cooking sheet with vegetable spray.
  • Stab each sweet potato with a fork several times. Place in a microwave and cook for two minutes. The potatoes should be slightly tender at this point.
  • Allow the sweet potatoes to cool, then chop them into large pieces.
  • Place in a food processor along with the remaining ingredients except for the panko crumbs. Pulse for a few seconds until the ingredients are combined. We're going for a rough texture here, with lots of sweet potato pieces.
  • Portion the dough in large tablespoons (you can use a cookie dough scoop for this). Roll it into a tater tot form, roll the tot in the bread crumbs, and place on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat until all the mixture is gone.
  • Place the pan in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, until the outside crust is golden. Remove from the oven. Serve warm.


Make Air Fryer Tots: Heat your air fryer to 400°F. Spray the air fryer basket with vegetable cooking spray. Place battered tots in a single row in the bottom of the basket. Cook for 5 minutes. Then remove the basket and use tongs to turn the tots. Return to the air fryer and cook for another 10 minutes or so, until crispy and golden brown. Repeat with the remaining tots.
