Baked Sweet Potato Oat Patties

8 Nov

Patties can be made out of pretty much anything. You need a binder, some seasoning, and the starring ingredient, and voila! You’ve got a patty. These act as perfect sliders, appetizers, or finger food when you’re in the mood. I made these extra garlicky, so scale it back on the cloves if that’s not for you. But enjoy! And if you like this, try the almond cheese oat patties I whipped up in a Chopped challenge earlier.

Oh, and of course these are healthy. Sweet potato packs a vitamin punch, oats are full of long-lasting fiber, and the pungent seasonings mean you won’t miss the lack of fat!

Baked Sweet Potato Oat Patties, adapted from My Whole Food Life

Makes 8 patties

  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and cubed
  • 1.5 C old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp dried parsley
  • 1 tbsp minced dried onion
  • freshly cracked sea salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with foil and grease.

Fill a small pot half-full with water. Bring to a boil and add the cubed sweet potato. Continue boiling for 25 minutes. Drain from water, and transfer the cubes to a small bowl. Mash them well – I used a fork, which worked perfectly.

In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients. Use the fork to incorporate the oats and mashed potato. Once mixed, form the mixture into 2-3″ wide patties. Transfer to prepared baking sheet.

Bake for 15 minutes, flip, and then for another 15 minutes. Remove from oven, let cool, and enjoy!
