Sweet Potato and Goats Cheese Fritters

This simple vegetarian recipe; sweet potato and goats cheese fritters are perfect on their own, with a salad for lunch or how I’ve pictured with the ultimate egg and smoked salmon combo. Along with being vegetarian, these fritters are both gluten free and high in protein.

When I think of Sunday Brunch I think of a stack of yummy food that often involves a variation on fritters or of course pancakes. If pancakes is what your craving then check out my 4 ingredient recipe 4 Ingredient Banana Protein Pancakes. However I certainly recommend giving these fritters a try. A serving of 3 fritters contains 17g Protein and is less than 335 calories.  

You could make a batch of these in advance for lunch, giving you not only a perfect Sunday brunch but meal prep to be proud of on a Monday lunch time. See below for the recipe…
