Sweet Potato Jin Deui

One potato made 10 jin deui for us. 


  • 1 sweet potato, cooked and chilled (I used a leftover boiled sweet potato)
  • about 3-4 Tbsp of oat flour (or oats ground in a blender), or about 1/4 of a cup (depending on the size of your sweet potato). A little more or less is OK.
  • about 1tsp-1 Tbsp of maple syrup (optional, for sweetness), a little less than 1 tsp is OK, too.
  • about a sprinkle to a pinch of salt (also can be optional if you are on a low sodium diet, though if you don’t use the maple syrup or salt the flavor will be different, and maybe a little more bland, but sweet potatoes have a nice flavor of their own)
  • sesame seeds

To Make:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (this is also optional, as you can start heating when you start cooking).
  2. At some point, lightly grease a cookie sheet or baking pan. I used coconut oil.
  3. Peel and mash sweet potato, if not already mashed. Your sweet potato should be already cooked and chilled for this recipe.
  4. Sprinkle in the salt and add maple syrup (optional). Start with a little if you are not sure, taste, and add more if necessary.
  5. Add flour. You could try other flour, too, such as glutinous rice flour and see how it turns out. I do not know how it will turn out, probably different, but still similar, as my search on google has discovered that jin deui is made with glutinous rice flour normally/usually. Please correct me if I am mistaken.
  6. Mix into a moist dough.
  7. Pour sesame seeds onto a plate, cutting board, or another clean and dry surface.
  8. Roll a little dough into a ball.
  9. Roll the ball in sesame seeds until it is well coated.
  10. Put on cookie sheet.
  11. Repeat until all dough is used up.
  12. Bake at 375 for about an hour (check after 45 minutes or if you smell something burning/smoking). I used a toaster oven, so this may bake different and not take as long in a conventional oven. I think  the oven also may not have been preheated, though it might have been.
  13. May be soft on the inside and crispy and delicious on the outside. Yummy!
