Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 150 grams mashed sweet potato
  • 1 scoop protein (we used vanilla)
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup almond slivers chopped
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon

Directions:

  1. We find the quickest way to bake up a sweet potato is to wash it, cut the ends off, poke a bunch of holes in it with a fork, then microwave it for 2-3 minutes depending on the size of your potato (3 mins for a large one, 2.5 for medium and 2 for a smaller one) Flip the potato and microwave for another 2-3 minutes. While you are microwaving the potato, preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Add potato to a baking tray lined with parchment paper and bake for 15 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, mix all ingredients until smooth.
  3. Cook batches in pre-sprayed skillet medium high temperature until bubbles form on the surface, then turn over and cook until dark golden brown.
  4. Serve with vanilla greek yogurt and honey, or whatever you like with your pancakes.
  5. We like to make a few smaller size pancakes and keep them in the fridge to eat during the day as snacks too.
