Sweet Potato Pancakes

Standard

Bonjour!

Sweet potatoes are root vegetables that are often overlooked. Sometimes, you may come across sweet potato fries, but that is about as mainstream as these guys get.

Well, hopefully that is about to change! I stumbled upon a recipe for Sweet Potato Pancakes not too long ago, and thought it would be a fun and easy recipe to share with all of you. A different weekend breakfast project, perhaps?

Sweet Potato Pancakes     Yield: 4-5 servings

Ingredients: For Pancakes

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 scoop protein powder (ideally, Vanilla)
  • 4 oz cooked sweet potato, skin off
  • 1/8 c oats
  • 1/8 c unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

For Frosting

  • 1/2 scoop protein powder (ideally, Vanilla)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 tbsp almond butter

Directions:

  1. In a blender, mix pancake ingredients. Batter will be thick.
  2. Pour out 4-5 pancakes on a hot griddle – medium to low heat.
  3. Mix frosting ingredients and heat in microwave for 5-10 seconds.
  4. Melt 1/2 tbsp of almond butter and pour on pancakes for final touch.

Not so bad, right? RIGHT. I recommend all of you at least try this. It can’t hurt, and with 30 grams protein, 39 grams carbohydrates, 322 calories and 6 grams of fat, these pancakes are healthy, delicious and a heck of a lot better for you than the ordinary pancakes. Let me know how it goes if you take the leap!

x’s and o’s as always.
