Sweet Potato Pancakes

Oh how I love pancakes. It´s the definitely best way to start off a new day with. I´ve never really tried to make pancakes made out of sweet potatoes, but since I had half a sweet potato left from yesterday´s dinner I thought why not make pancakes out of it! Sweet potatoes are as well full packed with vitamin B6, vitamin C and vitamin D, as well as a lot of iron and magnesium! Not only is it the probably best pancakes I´ve ever eaten, they´re the healthiest too! I absolutely love the sweetness and the gooey inside of the pancakes. Well, the flavour kind of reminds me of pumpkin pie! 

Sweet Potato Pancakes
Makes about 10 pancakes

1/2 big / 1 small sweet potato
1 cup oat milk
1 egg
1 cup spelt flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp coconut oil for frying

Start by discarding the skin off the sweet potato, and cutting it into smaller cubes. Boil the sweet potato for about 15 minutes until they are tender and super soft. Once soft, place it in the blender together with the oat milk and blend. In a bowl, whisk the egg and pour in the sweet potato paste. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir well. Heat up a frying pan and add a little bit of the coconut oil. Shape the batter into circles using a large spoon and let them cook for about a minute on each side. Once you´ve cooked all of the pancakes, serve with whatever you love and enjoy! I made a simple almond and chocolate sauce by mixing together 2 tbsps maple syrup, 1 tbsp coconut oil, 1 tsp almond butter and 1 tsp raw cocoa and placing it in a saucepan allowing it to heat up a bit on the stove top.
