1. Sweet Potato – Refined Sugar Free

Sweet Potato and banana are two of my favorite ways to use as sweeteners for my breakfast or dessert recipes.

2. Cassava Flour – Paleo and Gluten Free

Instead of all purpose flour used in traditional pancake recipes, I substituted with paleo friendly cassava flour.

3. Coconut Oil – Dairy Free

To make these pancakes dairy free, I used coconut oil as an alternative to butter.

Don’t get me wrong, I love butter, but I love coconut oil even more. It is such a versatile ingredient to use and it also adds a rich coconut flavor and sweetness to the pancakes.

In all honesty, I didn’t really start getting my hands dirty in the kitchen until I graduated from college a few years ago. So that’s why I am all about easy and simple recipes that doesn’t require a lot of ingredients or cleaning.

So here are a few easy steps to make these fluffy sweet potato pancakes :

1. Cook the Sweet Potatoes

Again, my sweet potato obsession is real. I have always loved to have my sweet potatoes already cooked so I can have them on hand whenever my cravings hit. I use them for dessert like this sweet potato brownie (OMG) and I add them to my smoothies. I have them ready before the weekend comes so I can whip up these sweet potato pancakes.

A couple easy ways to prepare sweet potatoes:

1. Bake:
  • Poke a few holes on the sweet potatoes
  • Stick them in the oven and bake at 375 F for an hour or until soft

(I usually make them at night when I’m watching TV. Two birds with one stone, amirite?)

2. Steam
  • Put the sweet potatoes and a little bit water in a big pot
  • Bring the water to boil
  • Turn the heat to simmer
  • Cover and steam for half an hour or until soft

2. Mash Everything Together

Mash the sweet potatoes and bananas with the back of a fork and mix all the ingredients together.

3. Cook it up

  • Spray the pan down with some coconut oil
  • Pour the pancake batter into rings

Tip: I rarely make the perfectly round pancakes. So here is my trick – I got some silicone pancake rings. Voila! Now we have perfectly shaped pancakes!

Or if you have a waffle maker, you can just pour it in there. This pancake recipe will have waffles turn out so crispy!

4.67 stars (3 reviews)

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup cooked sweet potato
  • 1/2 cup ripe banana
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup nut milk, add more if the batter is too thick
  • 1/2 cup cassava flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • dashes cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp almond flour, optional (see tips below)

Instructions 

  • Mash up the sweet potatoes and bananas and add in the rest of wet ingredients, egg, coconut oil, nut milk
  • Once the wet ingredients are mixed well, add dry ingredients – cassava flour, cinnamon and baking soda
  • Heat up a pan with some coconut oil (I usually use the spray)
  • Turn the heat to medium then pour pancake batter onto the pan in ring shaped
  • Cook each side for about 3-4 minutes
  • Add your favorite toppings and maple syrup. Enjoy!

Notes

  1. For instructions of cooking sweet potatoes, see my tips in the post above
  2. If the batter appears to be too thick, you could add a couple tbsp more nut milk. I use my homemade version. 
  3. Adding up to 1 tbsp of almond flour will make it more on the softer side. So if you prefer your pancakes or waffles not as firm, you could add a little almond flour.
