Sweet Potato Pancakes For One

Ahhhhhhh!  That is the sound of me exhaling after a CRAZY week.  Luckily, the sun is shining AND I don’t have to go to work today.  I do have a 9:30AM appointment with the Trainer so a healthy breakfast is in order.



There is an easy recipe for mini banana pancakes that I make sometimes on the weekends.  It is from Hungry Girl and always fills me up before a busy day.  Plus, it makes only one serving, which is perfect for pancakes!

I had a left over sweet potato from last night’s dinner and decided to adapt this recipe to make Sweet Potato Pancakes…yum!



I briefly (30 seconds) heated my sweet potato and removed the skin.  I mashed it and added the wet ingredients.

I combined the dry ingredients in a separate bowl.



Add your sweet potato mixture to the dry ingredients and stir well.  Drop small spoonfuls onto a heated skillet (sprayed with Pam).  Flip after 3-4 minutes.  Do not press down on pancakes.



Pancakes will be lightly browned on one side. Heat for another 1-2 minutes.



Serve with powdered sugar, fruit (I ate all my blueberries while I was cooking), or maple syrup.




If you have never had sweet potato pancakes, I am SORRY!  If you have, then you will be thrilled to find this recipe.  My pancakes turned out wonderful!
