- 2 medium-large sweet potatoes, washed and peeled
- 1/2 cup liquid egg whites
- 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp rosemary
- 1/2 tsp thyme
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and spray with non-fat cooking spray.
- Grate the sweet potatoes into a large bowl, and then squeeze as much moisture from them as you can. *I used a cheesecloth, and then squeezed out a lot of the moisture.
- In large bowl, combine the potatoes and remaining ingredients.
- Using an ice cream scooper, scoop out the mixture and place it onto the baking sheet. Gently press out the fritter as flat and as thin as you can get it. Repeat until all the potato mixture is used.
- Place into oven and bake for 30 minutes, flipping once halfway through, until the fritters are crisp and golden. Serve immediately.
