I have been struggling to come up with ideas to add variation to my carb options. Being that I have a gluten and most types of grain sensitivity, it makes my choices really limited.  The other day I came across this recipe for sweet potato pancakes. They taste good, are easy to make and they get the job done. Enjoy!

 

Ingredients

  • 1 8 oz. Sweet Potato
  • 2 Medium Eggs
  • 1/2 Large Banana
  • 1/4 tsp Baking Soda
  • Pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg
  • coconut oil (or other fat) for cooking

Instructions

  1. Wash and pierce sweet potatoes several times with a fork, micro for 5-6 minutes, until soft.
  2. In a  food processor add the scooped out flesh of the sweet potatoes, the two eggs, and half of a banana.
  3. Puree until smooth, and add in baking soda and spices to taste until everything is combined.
  4. Heat a skillet to medium and add coconut oil. Scoop 1/4 cup sized amounts onto the skillet and allow to sit for 2-3 minutes on one side and flip carefully. Cook an additional 1-2 minutes on the opposite side. Continue until all the batter is done.
  5. Makes 7-8 small pancakes.
