  1. In a large bowl, combine the sweet potato, flour, scallions, egg, salt and pepper. Stir the mixture together with a spatula or wooden spoon until combined.
  2. Add 2 - 3 tablespoons of coconut oil into a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, form small patties out of the sweet potato mixture in your hands.
  3. Cook the fritters until golden brown, about 2 - 3 minutes, then flip cook an additional 2 minutes. Transfer the fritters to a cooling rack.
  4. Repeat this process with the remaining mixture.
  5. Serve slightly warm as is (or with some Sriracha ketchup - yes!).
