Allergens: nuts, egg 

Ingredients

  • 1 large sweet potato

  • egg white for dipping (about 1/4 cup)

  • 1/2 cup roasted salted almonds

  • 1/2 cup raw walnuts

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F

  2. Cook sweet potato as desired (I used the microwave)

  3. Mash sweet potato in a bowl and add cinnamon

  4. Grind nuts in a food processor or blender until you have some finely ground but still some bigger chunks

  5. Spoon about 1-2 tbsp of sweet potato and roll into a ball with your palm as best you can

  6. Roll the ball in egg whites and then roll in the nuts until completely coated

  7. Place the balls on a greased pan and cook for about 15-20 min making sure the nuts don’t burn

** These are great as a Thanksgiving appetizer!
