Step by step instructions for preparing & cooking these Zucchini + Sweet Potato Fritters:
Zucchini + Sweet Potato BLW Frittata Recipe:
1 Med/Large Zucchini
1/2 Large Sweet Potato (yam)
2 TBSP Flour
Non-Stick Cooking Oil
Zucchini + Sweet Potato BLW Frittata Prep + Cook:
1) Shred zucchini & Sweet Potato in separate bowls. Then take grated zucchini and squeeze out excess water (can use a paper towel or cheesecloth but I prefer paper towel)
2) In another bowl, mix eggs with flour.
3) Add in shredded Zucchini + Sweet Potato/Yam and mix well.
4) Heat skillet on medium heat and spray with non-stick cooking oil ( I like coconut or olive oil)
5) Add your mixture to the pan in small sections (should look like small pancakes)
6) Cook for about 1-2 mins on each side (making sure no runny egg is left – needs to be fully cooked before baby can eat).
7) Remove from pan and let cool down on a paper towel (to absorb any extra oils). Then store in the fridge once cooled.
Bonus tip – use these cute little shape cutters to shape your fritters into fun sensory shapes for your little one! Great for picky eaters too!

Love these easy BLW recipes! Fritatas aren’t something that I typically think of making.
Aw yay I’m glad you’re enjoying them! They’re great because you can use so much variety with them, change up the veggies – add some texture, etc…!! ❤️
Can you freeze these?
I haven’t frozen these ones specifically, but I have frozen another one that had more carrots and sweet potatoes & they froze great when wrapped individually in press & seal!
Does the sweet potato need to be cooked beforehand?
Hey Charmaine, I did not cook mine before hand as they cooked nicely in the pan 🙂 But you totally can, it’d probably give them a little crunchier texture which is great for older babies!
