Coconut floor or arrowroot flour

I am not an expert but I would say no because the sweet potato fritters are fried.Here are two paragraphs from the Can I Have post that may address your question.

Almond Flour: Yes

Yes, you can have almond flour, coconut flour, tapioca flour, and other non-grain-based flours, but it’s context-dependent. You can use it in place of breadcrumbs in your meatballs, to dredge a piece of chicken, or to thicken a sauce or stew. You may not use it for Paleo baking—to make muffins, pancakes, bread, cupcakes, cookies, waffles, biscuits, tortillas, pizza crust, or anything of that nature. We call those recipes Sex With Your Pants On (SWYPO) foods, and they are expressly off-limits during your Whole30.

Chips: Not if they’re store bought

While we recognize that potatoes are a real food, we also know that eating them in the form of fries and chips has turned them from “produce” into an adulterated commercial “product.” It’s easy to find potato, tortilla, or plantain chips that meet the Whole30 ingredient standards. It is not easy, however, to consume those chips in a way that’s true to the spirit of the Whole30. For most of us, deep-fried, salted, crunchy chips are a bonafide food-with-no-brakes, and fall into that deep, dark area of less-healthy foods with technically compliant ingredients. For that reason, no store-bought chips of any nature (potato, plantain, tortilla, beet… not even kale) on the Whole30. Feel free to roast your own kale, pan-fry your own plantains, or bake your own sweet potato spears at home, however.

Sweet potato fritters or cakes is a way of preparing sweet potatoes that is not chip like but adds compliant carb veggie to a meal. Frying is not forbidden. 


Arrowroot powder: Yes Arrowroot powder is a fine choice as a thickener and can be especially helpful in sauces and gravies. Like almond flour, though, it’s not appropriate for use in baked goods.
