Cut the yams into large chunks, place in a stockpot, and cover with water. Bring to a boil and allow to simmer until soft but not mushy (think soft but still not soft enough to be edible…if that even makes sense…)

Drain the yams and place into a food processor. Pulse until they are grated but be careful not to make a puree. Transfer to a bowl and add the salt, eggs, and arrowroot powder.

Heat the oil in a heavy pan over medium-high heat. Form quarter-sized balls from the yam mixture and drop into the oil. Cook for about 1.5-2 minutes on each side and turn. Transfer to a baking sheet. When all of your mixture is done frying, bake the tots at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.


  • 2 Large Yams or Sweet Potatoes
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 t Salt
  • 2 T Arrowroot Powder
  • 1/4 c Olive or Coconut oil for frying

    I just read a non-paleo recipe/deconstruction excercise on tots, and the writer determined that in order to avoid them getting gummy you need to fry the potatoes before making them into tots. Sooo… just thinking frying in coconut oil instead of parboiling might work too??

    @chrisfiex Since when are sweet potatoes NOT paleo? What are you eating post workout if not some stort of sweet potato or squash? If its anything else, you should catch up on your reading. : )
