    Step 1
    Pat sweet potatoes with paper towels to absorb excess moisture. Transfer to large bowl.

    Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the avocado oil and heat until it ripples.

    Using a 2 tablespoon ice cream scoop, drop the batter into the skillet and flatten into a round pancake. Ensure fritters are at least 1/2-inch apart while frying.

    Transfer to paper towels to drain. Serve warm.
