Healthy-ish Pancakes ;)

I love pancakes. My dad is not a great chef, but if I had to pick a favourite thing that he used to make for us it would be PANCAKES… from scratch with all the love in the world.

My Dad.. The Pancake Man

Since I now live 3500 km away from my dad, I don’t often get his pancakes, but almost every weekend I try out a new pancake recipe to see how it compares ;). My most recent find and secret treasure, is a Yam Pancakes recipe. Sugar free (except for the large amounts of Maple syrup that go on top). I top mine with Skyr Plain Yogurt, chopped cinnamon nuts and maple syrup. If given the choice for breakfast Chuck also prefers pancakes to eggs so I am always looking to him to approve a recipe. He gives this one 5 pokeballs 😉

The best part about this pancake rating is the spoonie rating! You literally put all the ingredients in a blender and voila! done 😉 Let me know what you think <3

    • Whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add the sweet potato mixture and stir just until combined.
