  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted, and mashed


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and lightly grease a baking sheet.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. In a separate bowl, mash the sweet potatoes with the olive oil, lime juice, and cilantro. Add the mashed sweet potatoes to the flour mixture and stir until combined.

Form the sweet potato mixture into 8-10 small patties and place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow the cakes to cool for a few minutes before serving.

To serve, top each cake with a dollop of mashed avocado and a sprinkle of fresh cilantro. Enjoy!
