Sweet potato and apple bites


  • 1 sweet potato
  • 1 apple
  • 1 heaped tsp cinnamon
  • Sunflower oil or sunflower oil fry light for cooking


  • Peel and chop the sweet potato into cubes.  Boil until soft.
  • Peel and chop the apple into small cubes, put the apple in a saucepan with 3 tbsp water and the cinnamon. Cook on the hob on a low heat until the water has disappeared and the the apple is soft.
  • Once soft, drain the water from the sweet potato.
  • Put the sweet potato and apple in a blender and blitz until smooth.
  • Grease a baking tray with sunflower oil (we used sunflower oil fry light).  Put small blobs of the mixture on the baking tray (approx. 1/2 a tsp).
  • Cook in the oven for approx 15 minutes.  The sweet potato and apple bites should still be soft, whilst holding their shape when they are cooked.
  • Allow to cool before removing from the baking tray.
  • Enjoy!
