Ingredients

For the Sweet Potato Tots:

  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon

For the Crispy Coating:

  • 4 cups Sweet Potato Chips
  • 2 tbsp. coconut sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon

For the Greek Yogurt Dip

  • 1/3 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp. pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Prep the sweet potatoes by poking a few holes in each of them using a fork. You can either bake them in the oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for about an hour or microwave them for about 8-10 minutes. Once cooked through, let them cool enough to touch.

  2. Add the Jackson’s Honest Sweet Potato Chips into a food processor, followed by the coconut sugar, sea salt, and ground cinnamon. Now, pulse until the sweet potato chips are evenly broken down into small pieces, but not yet to a powder.  Add this to a shallow dish and set aside.

  3. Add the peeled, cooked sweet potatoes to a large mixing bowl, followed by the cinnamon, and mash together, but do not puree.

  4. Place the mashed sweet potato mixture into the fridge and allow to chill. This will make it easier to form into tots, but is not vital.

  5. To form the sweet potato tots, grab about 1 tbsp. of the chilled sweet potato mixture and form into into a tot shape using your fingers. Think a cylinder with a flat top and bottom.  If the mixture sticks too much to your hands, you can wet them with water, as needed. 

  6. One at a time, add each tot to the crushed sweet potato chip mixture and gently toss to coat.
  7. Then, transfer the coated tot to a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper and repeat with the remaining mixture.

  8. Place the tots into the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, gently flipping them halfway through.
  9. Be careful to not allow the crispy sweet potato crust burn.
  10. While the tots are baking, prepare the sweet greek yogurt dipping sauce for the tots. To do this, add plain greek yogurt to a small mixing bowl, followed by pure maple syrup, vanilla extract, and cinnamon, and stir to combine.
