3 ingredient sweet potatoe pancakes
Sweet potatoes haven't always been my jam. In fact I didn't even know they existed growing up. White potatoes were the norm in my house and red potatoes made an occasional appearance. I remember trying sweet potato fries years back and I swore them off forever. A few years later I began seeing more and more of them and decided to reintroduce them into my nutrition. A big part of that was due to the fact they are a better-for-you carb. Now I opt for sweet potatoes ALL the time and it turns out there is a lot one can do with sweet potatoes!
Here are 2 of my fave ways to enjoy them:
1. Loaded baked potato-w/cheese, green onion, diced tomatoes, Greek yogurt and bacon crumbles.
2. Like "cereal", boiled, diced and topped w/warm milk, cinnamon and coconut sugar.
And now I'm adding 3 ingredient sweet potato pancakes to the favorites list! Alright, let's get this pancake show on the road--shall we?
3 INGREDIENT SWEET POTATOES
1 medium sweet potato skinned and boiled
1 TSP baking soda
Spice them up with 1 TBS of pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon
Add all ingredients to a blender and blend well. Batter should be thick enough to where it slowly rolls off a spoon. If you find batter is overly thick add almond milk until you reach preferred consistency.
Next, heat up a pan and add a pat of butter. Coconut oil works well but I prefer the browning butter adds to pancakes and not to mention the taste too!
I found success making small silver dollar pancakes as opposed to larger pancakes--less cooking time and easier to flip! Once you pour batter on to hot pan, turn heat to low and wait for air bubbles to form on pancakes. Shake the pan a bit to ensure the batter isn't runny and then it's safe to flip! This step is very important so be patient ok?! I promise these will be worth the wait time.
See how pretty they are? And oh the fluff! The best. I was so pumped to eat these little babies that I didn't even bother to top them with anything at all. I devoured them just like this! But of course feel free to top with whatever your heart desires--peanut butter and banana, almond butter and sprinkles, Greek yogurt and berries or keep it simple and pour syrup on top!
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
