  • 1 large sweet potato peeled
  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt or more to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 - 1 teaspoon seasoned salt or Cajun seasoning
  • 1/4 - 1/3 cup almond flour plus more as needed


  1. Bring a medium pot of water to a boil. Add the whole sweet potato and cook for about 20-25 minutes, until you can pierce it easily with a fork. Drain and use the fork to mash the sweet potato while still warm.
  2. Grate the zucchini directly into the same pot as the mashed sweet potato. Add salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and Cajun seasoning, until combined.

  3. Add 1/4 cup almond flour, using your hands to press until you can easily form a firm cylinder tot shape without it falling apart. Add more almond flour as needed, 1 teaspoon at a time.

  4. Set them on a lined baking sheet in rows so that they are not touching each other.

To Make in the Oven:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Bake for 15 minutes. Then, flip them over. Return to the oven and bake for another 10 - 15 minutes. Turn oven to broil for about 1-2 minutes, watching carefully until the tots are lightly browned.
  3. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce and enjoy immediately.

To Make in the Air Fryer:

  1. Heat your air fryer to 400 F.

  2. Carefully arrange tots on the air fryer basket so there is space between them. You will need to cook in 2-3 batches.

  3. Cook for 7-8 minutes or until firm enough to flip over. Cook for an additional 5-7 more minutes, until both sides are crispy. Be careful to watch and check on the time to be sure they do not burn.

  4. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce and enjoy immediately.
