Healthier Non-fried Sweet Potato Croquettes

Healthier Non-fried Sweet Potato Croquettes

The sweetness of the potatoes goes well with the creaminess and tartness of yogurt! These are healthier because they're non-fried, and even better when cooled. Great for snacks.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Sweet potato
150 g
Plain yogurt
1 tablespoon
1 tablespoon
1 teaspoon
as needed
Melted butter
as needed


1. Dry-fry the panko until lightly browned.
2. Boil sweet potatoes in water with 1 teaspoon salt. Drain and mash while they're hot.
3. Combine with sugar and yogurt. If you strain the potatoes here you'll get a smoother result. If you like it lumpy, don't strain. Form into bite-sized balls.
4. Coat with melted butter and coat with panko prepped in Step 1.
5. Bake for 5 to 10 minutes in a 140 to 160℃ preheated oven. While baking, roll it over to prevent from burning.
6. Plain yogurt and kintoki sweet potato.

Story Behind this Recipe

I became obsessed with the sweet potato croquettes with cream cheese that I ate at a restaurant. I wanted to eat more, but I was afraid that all the oil, cheese, and sweet potato will make me fat!! That's why I decided to make a non-fried version and used yogurt instead of cream cheese.
