Recipe: Sweet Potato Pancakes

I love to add ingredients to pancakes to make them extra special! My kids absolutely love pancakes and have always enjoyed them with added banana. I decided to try adding some left over baked sweet potato and they turned out so wonderful! I am excited to share this delicious recipe!

Sweet Potato Pancakes

1 1/2 cups pancake mix (I use Log Cabin All Natural)
2 eggs
2/3 cup plus 2-3 Tb. milk
2 Tb. plain unsweetened applesauce (oil substitute)
1/2 cup mashed baked sweet potato
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 Tb. ground flax seed

Preheat griddle to 375 degrees. Mix pancake mix, eggs, apple sauce, milk, sweet potato, vanilla, spices and flax seed. Combine until lumps disappear. Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to measure each pancake. Pour the batter onto a lightly greased griddle. Turn pancake when bubbles form on the top. Only turn the pancake once and cook for 60 seconds on the other side.  Makes 10-11 pancakes.

Tip: bake the sweet potato the night before you plan to make them so it is ready to add in the morning!

    Thanks for sharing the recipe, they look so delicious. I’ve been meaning to introduce pankcakes and waffles back to the breakfast table after a long hiatus.
