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)
2/3 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!
