One of my favourite healthy snacks to eat are these super tasty Sweet Potato Egg Bites, perfect for those mid-afternoon cravings but packed full of goodness – it’s amazing what you can do with a bit of veg and egg whites!
Prep time: 10 minutes
Baking time: 25 minutes
Portions: 6 bites
1x large sweet potato
18x egg whites (I usually get the carton ones)
6x muffin baking tin
Start by popping the oven on 180 degrees to preheat. Next spray the muffin tin with 1 kcal Fry Light ready for the mixture. Grate the full sweet potato using a cheese greater until completely shredded, now pack this into the muffin slots to form the base. Make sure you push down firmly so the mixture binds together in the oven. Place on the middle shelf in the oven for around 10 minutes.
Whilst the base is cooking, begin to finely chop all the veg.
Once the potato base looks baked, add in the chopped veg, splitting them out into the different slots. I usually do two for each type of veg, but I’m sure they’d taste great if you wanted to combine them as well.
Once the slots are stuffed, pour the egg whites over the top until completely covered. Sprinkle with mixed herbs, black pepper and Oregano. Pop back in the oven again for a further 15 minutes until the egg whites look completely cooked.
And there you have it, three sets of snacks to last you a few days. I usually eat these two at a time as a mid-afternoon snack with spinach for an added bonus of iron!
