Healthy Sweet Potato Pancakes

What’s up everyone? Today is the day we take a naturally beautiful sweet potato and give it a complete makeover (hint: sweet potato pancakes). Not because I don’t like it by itself but because when you prepare anything with passion, it always comes out better…and I have a very STRONG passion for pancakes!

First you’re gonna start by preparing your sweet potato also known as cooking it. I like MOST things done quick so when I don’t prep them beforehand I like to use the microwave. To microwave a sweet potato all you have to do is stab a few holes in it, wrap it in a damp paper towel, and zap it for 5-8 minutes depending on how big your sweet potato is.

Next, take out a large bowl and mash up half of your sweet potato, which for me is 200 grams. After that add in 4 tablespoons or 30 grams of coconut flour, 1 scoop or 30 grams of protein powder,  2 teaspoons of vanilla extract, 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 2 large eggs, 1/4 cup or 2 ounces of almond milk, 1 tablespoon of a sweetener, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, and 1/8th teaspoon of salt. Mix all of those ingredients together. Tip: a hand mixer will be your best friend here. Click here to check out the great quality and extremely affordable hand mixer that I use!

Once everything is mixed together take out a stovetop pan, turn your burner on medium heat, and let your pan heat up for a couple minutes (the thicker your pan is, the longer it’ll take to heat up). Once it heats up coat it with some non-stick cooking spray and add however much mix you want onto your pan (if you don’t have a pan but have a griddle that will work just as good too). Let them cook for around 2 minutes a side and repeat until your mix is gone!

The best part!? Aside from looking like your sweet potato went from 30 weeks out to contest prep shape, these sweet potato pancakes taste amazing too!!!

Tips:

  • Keep the skin on your sweet potato for more fiber!
  • Top it with some sugar free syrup!
