Two Ingredient Sweet Potato Pancakes That I Love

Many of my friends who know me, know that I can be a bit of a health nut at times. I like to think of myself as a health nut hybrid because I’m also a foodie! I love to eat and I adore trying new things. That’s one of the many things that brought my husband and I together.

We loved to try new food together; he was the first person I tried sushi with. However, while we love food, the other thing that brought us together was the fact that we were trying to lead a healthier lifestyle. So we’d workout together and also sought healthy food alternatives.

Sweet potatoes quickly became a staple in our home from sweet potato chips, sweet potato hash, steamed sweet potatoes, sweet potato chili … okay you get the point. This one is a new fave, sweet potato pancakes! This was super easy for me to make and a great alternative to traditional pancakes. They were light, fluffy, but also filling. I topped mine with melted natural peanut butter and Nick topped his with pure maple syrup and fruit. You should definitely give this recipe a try and share with your friends!

  1. Mash the cooked sweet potato and whisk in the two eggs until it’s evenly blended. Add desired seasonings or the ones listed above and stir.
  2. Heat oil or butter over medium heat. Coconut oil is a great alternative.
  3. Add about a tablespoon of the sweet potato mixture to the heated pan and cook for 3-5 minutes on each side.
  4. If you make yours larger than a tablespoon (which I did with some of mine), they may cook a little longer than 3-5 minutes on each site. You will know your pancakes are done because they will be lightly golden brown.
  5. You can eat them plain, which is great, but toppings are so much more fun and yummy! You can top with butter, nut butter (almond, peanut) or maple syrup.
