I love sweet potato. In fact once you have cut sugar out of your life you can actually taste a subtle sweetness in sweet potato. I find they give me a great rush of energy and are great pre-workout. The only problem is how to best consume them in the morning for breakfast. Well the answer came to me and I wondered why not in pancake form. My search for Paleo Sweet Potato Pancakes began and to make things even more difficult I had to make them flourless as I was running low on stock! After playing around and a few failed attempts I found the solution and that is in the form of a light fluffy and optionally sweetened (naturally of course) flourless pancake. You can dress yours up or simply have them as is, its up to you. If I am feeling naughty i will drizzle some maple syrup on top, otherwise just bacon and eggs does me just fine.
Paleo Sweet Potato Pancakes … whats the secret?
To be honest it is going to help for most my recipes if you have a food processor. I am a modern caveman after all. The more ingredients I can throw into a bowl and switch a button on to mix it all together… the happier I am We are all short on time, so I always keep that in mind when playing around with recipes. Also take note that I mention microwaving in the recipe too, this is optional and is also for time poor people in a modern age. If you do not own one or are against it then simply boil the sweet potato for about 15 minutes and then continue on with the recipe.
