Sweet Potato Pancakes

These sweet potato pancakes are so easy to make and they taste brilliant. Give ’em a go this Pancake Day! (or any day!)

Serves: 8 Pancakes

Prep: 15 Minutes

Cook: 10 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled, cooked and mashed (or use leftovers)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 heaped tbsp tapioca flour
  • 1 heaped tbsp of coconut flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil for cooking

Directions

  1. Mix the sweet potato, eggs and vanilla extract. 
  2. In a separate bowl, use a fork to mix the tapioca flour, coconut flour, baking powder, nutmeg and cinnamon.
  3. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet in small batches. Stir well each time until a thick batter has formed.
  4. Melt a little coconut oil in a frying pan.
  5. Place two tablespoons of batter in the pan and flatten slightly. Cook over medium heat for 2-3 minutes and using a large spatula flip the pancakes.
  6. Press the top of the pancake with the spatula so you have the thickness and shape of a pancake.  Cook for a further 1-2 minutes on this side.
