Spiced Up- Sweet Potato Kale Cakes

Healthy, delicious and easy-to-make.


These Crispy Sweet Potato cakes are tender and fluffy on the inside and delightfully crispy on the outside. They're made with a few simple ingredients and seasoned with one of my favourite, za'atar spice. These wholesome cakes are held together with oat flour, coconut oil and egg replacer.

To make these extra tasty, pair them with your favourite dipping sauce. I served these tasty cakes with my Creamy Kale Pesto, and it was ridiculously delicious.
