Fall has arrived. & there is no better way to spend a fall morning than with the sun warming your toes, hearty pancakes warming your belly, tea warming your soul, & a bee trying to fly up your nose! Welcome to my Sunday morning!!!
I decided to use the microwaveable sweet potatoes I had bought a few weeks ago. Actually, I only used one..but it’s progress. Sweet potatoes are full of wonderful vitamins & nutrients that our bodies need. Beta carotene, fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin K, Vitamin C, Vitamins X, Y, & Z! You get the point. Sweet potatoes are cool AF.
What better way to eat a really cool food than using them for something that’s also super cool?! PANCAKES 😀 Sweet potatoe pancakes make for a more satisfying pancake-eating experience than your typical pancake can give you. Trust me, I am a pancake expert (no I’m not at all).
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 1/4 cup milk
- 1 cup flour (I used whole wheat)
- 1 cup sweet potato purée
- 1 egg
- dash of cinnamon
- smaller dash of nutmeg
- 2 teaspoons baking powder (I tend to confuse the two baking substances..)
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil/canola oil/olive oil – whatever oil you have
- splash of vanilla
Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl: flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg
Top the magical pancakes off with maple syrup or whatever you desire. Homemade whipped cream would’ve been perfection…
