Its always good when you can create yummy treats that are also super healthy. Today I made bite sized sweet potato balls using cassava flour. Yes, so now that i have piqued your curiosity for this recipe, let’s go ahead and make some!

These sweet potato balls are perfect for snacks, the picnic basket and an awesome kiddie treat. They are also healthy, nutritious and delicious. Definitely, an awesome fun way of enjoying regular sweet potatoes.



1 large sweet potato

1 cup cassava flour

2 tablespoons sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

Let’s Cook!

Wash the sweet potatoes and boil them in a pot until they are fork-ready. Leave to cool completely then peel and mash them. Add the baking soda, cassava and all-purpose flour, salt and sugar and mix with a wooden spoon or mwiko. Mix as lightly as possible until it almost resembles a crumble. Take a small amount and make a ball in your palm. Make the balls about one inch in diameter.


In a skillet, add vegetable oil to deep fry the sweet potato balls and heat. Place the balls in the oil gently and cook until golden brown. Do not let the oil get too hot. Cook in low heat, slowly rolling them to cook all round.


Enjoy your treat with a fruit for breakfast, a tall glass of fruit juice or a steaming cup of herb tea!
