Last week it was the simplest banana pancakes and now this!!!!! 2 Ingredient Sweet Potato Pancakes!! Did you try the pancakes from last week’s post yet? What are you waiting for? Maybe you were saving yourself up for this one!
I was so excited to try this since I love love love sweet potatoes. I often just cook up a few and eat them throughout the week. My new obsession is baked sweet potato slices with hummus on them!! I will make smoothies with lots of cinnamon and ginger and nutmeg and anything else that tastes like pumpkin pie…. I do love them yes…..
The hardest thing about this recipe is that you need to have cooked sweet potato on hand. That isn’t very difficult is it!?
Sweet Potato Pancakes!!!!
1/2 cup sweet potato (I left the skin on but that is your call)
1/4 cup almond meal – or 1 tablespoon almond butter
chopped pecans sprinkled on top would be amazing (I am doing this next time for sure!)
mix in spices like – cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, or pumpkin pie spice – for a truer pumpkin pie flavored pancake
Blend it all up in the blender to get the skin all pureed – or if you peel the sweet potatoes you can mix it however suits you. I started my first batch with just the basic 2 ingredients and added things in as I went along to taste the difference, so I added the almond meal after the fact and just mixed it in with a spoon.
These are very moist, so make sure to let them cook for a while before flipping.These are much less sweet than the banana pancakes – I still really liked them plain but Liesl loved them with a little maple syrup – I mean really how can you go wrong with sweet potatoes and maple syrup!!!
I bet you could use a dense squash like butternut or kobocha or maybe even pumpkin – you should try it!!
I liked these. They made me want to make pumpkin pie. I like that they are not too sweet-potatoey . I also like that they are not too sweet. I had some maple syrup and it was yummy too. You should try these!
