My daughter’s first solid food was sweet potato and she sure got hooked. If we let her, she would eat sweet potatoes all day, every day but I do make her one of these pancakes almost every morning. Luckily they are high in fiber, manganese, potassium, beta-carotene & Vitamins B6, C & E.
Sweet potato pancakes are easy to make & delicious. They’re just sweet enough so you don’t even need maple syrup. If you don’t have leftover mashed sweet potato on hand, you can simply pierce the skin a few times & pop it in the microwave for about 4 minutes.
Sweet Potato Pancakes
1 cup mashed sweet potato
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tsp. cinnamon
Butter or coconut oil
Beat the eggs in a bowl until frothy. Mix in the mashed sweet potato, vanilla & cinnamon.
Turn the stove on to medium heat and melt the butter or coconut oil in the pan (enough to grease the bottom.) Pour one quarter of the batter into your pan (about 1/2 cup) and flip when the edges become pale and firm.
