Easy, Paleo Sweet Potato Pancakes
These sweet potato pancakes are not only easy to make, have less than five ingredients, and are extremely simple, but they are also Paleo, Grain free, Gluten free, low-sugar, and GAPS approved. They're awesome, and they're awesome for you.
These pancakes are a perfect addition to any brunch, alongside copious amounts of scrambled eggs, avocado and bacon. Talk about TREAT YOSELF and YUM. They also, like they did today, make a great snack. They're so easy to make that you will find you'll want them at any time for any meal. No shame. So let's get to it, here's the recipe:
2 Small or 1 Large Sweet Potato
1/4 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp. Honey
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
Cinnamon to taste
1 Tbsp. Coconut oil for frying
1. Chop up sweet potatoes into chunks and place in a double boiler over medium heat until steam begins to soften the potatoes.
2. Once the potatoes are completely soft to the touch, take them off the heat and place in a separate bowl.
3. Either removing the skin or keeping it on, use a fork to mash the sweet potatoes until they are smooth.
4. Add the eggs, vanilla, honey, baking soda and cinnamon to the mixture and combine.
5. Heat large frying pan on medium heat and add coconut oil to the pan.
6. Spoon a dollop of the batter onto the pan once hot and leave to cook on one side for about a minute and a half or until you can begin to peel it off the pan with a spatula and see that it is browned on the bottom.
7. Flip the pancake and continue to cook it until it is firm to touch. Repeat with the rest of the batter!
8. I topped mine with a spoonful of coconut yogurt but feel free to add anything your heart desires -- maple syrup, honey, ghee, etc.
Enjoy these delicious pancakes! If you find they're not sweet enough for a breakfast (which I actually like about them!) feel free to add more honey or maple syrup to the batter-- but I think the more subdued taste is intriguing, and better for the sugar addicts! Let me know what you think about these and what you topped them with! Enjoy! :)
