Ingredients:

  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 large red onion, finely chopped
  • 300g sweet potato, peeled, coarsely grated
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 5 eggs
  • ¾ cup wholemeal self-raising flour

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 200C (180C fan-forced).

  5. Serve the slices with roasted cherry tomatoes or garden salad. Enjoy!
