spicy sweet potato pancakes

sweet potatoes are the hottest vegetable these days. so i wanted to find a fun recipe that brings out the sweet and savory flavors. so here’s a spicy sweet potatoes pancakes recipe.

it isn’t spicy as in burn your mouth hot. it’s spicy as in flavorful and aromatic. to make the recipe healthier, i baked it in the oven instead of frying it in oil.

the pancakes are paired with guacamole. the combo makes a delectable appetizer, side dish or snack!


  • 3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and shredded
  • 1 small onion, peeled
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons smoked sweet paprika
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons coriander
  • guacamole


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Drain the shredded potatoes, pressing them down in a colander to get their moisture out. Place the potatoes in a bowl; using a box grater, grate the onion directly into the potatoes so that the onion juices fall into bowl as well. Add the egg and flour or meal to the bowl then season with spices.

Line a flat baking pan with parchment paper. Make 2-1/2 inch pancakes (approximately 16 pancakes) and place on baking pan. Bake for 15 minutes on each side.

Arrange the potato pancakes on a platter and top with heaping spoonfuls of guacamole.
