Sweet Potato Pancakes

Sunday morning sleep in and pancake extravaganza! How good….. Would have been better if I didn’t read the clock wrong and think that it was 7.30 when it was in fact 6.30am….Sleep-in Fail.

Sweet potato is a rich source of flavonoid anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber that are essential for optimal health. These pancakes are similar to the Muscle Fuel Pancakes as they are high in protein and have no added sugar. They are not made on white flour so you will not feel like you have a chunk of play-doh in your guts after eating them πŸ™‚

250g roasted sweet potato (about 1 lge sweet potato)
3 eggs
1/2 cup almond meal
1 cup coconut milk (or milk of your choice)
1/2 cup flavourless protein powder
2 tbsp nut butter (or coconut oil)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
Pinch salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cloves
OPTIONAL- stevia or honey to taste

In a food processor mix all ingredients until smooth. Spoon into a hot pan and cook like regular pancakes. We ate ours with some natural yoghurt, fresh chopped strawberries and raspberry purΓ©e.
