Sweet Potato Pancakes
For some reason, neither of my sons likes sweet potatoes. So this week, I added a sweet potato to breakfast pancakes just to see if any one would notice the difference and they loved them! Sweet potatoes are one of nature’s super foods so whenever I am going to have the oven on anyway, I throw a couple of them in the oven to cook and then can store them in the fridge for a few more days to add to recipes throughout the week.
1 medium sweet potato, cooked and peeled
2 cups pancake and waffle mix (this also comes gluten free if needed)
1 cup milk (rice milk works also)
1/2 cup pecans or walnuts
1 cup maple syrup or honey
In a mixing bowl, mash the peeled sweet potato with a fork. Add the pancake mix, milk, eggs, and nuts. Stir until smooth (the mix may seem a bit thicker than usual). Heat a griddle or skillet to medium and coat with cooking spray. Drop quarter cupfuls of the mix onto the hot griddle. Turn when the pancakes are bubbling in the center and then cook on the other side until golden brown. Serve with maple syrup or honey.
