Sweet Potato Panqueques

Yesterday I found this article on BuzzFeed called 11 Bullshit Things About Online Recipes and was literally laughing out loud in public. So if you've read it, I'm gonna nix the life story and just get straight to the point.

But just want to explain sweet potato puree in a can, because I just recently found it in Whole Foods the other day. For me, I love fresh baked sweet potatoes for yogurt bowls or with dinner, but when I want to bake with it, baking them for an hour just seems like a long ass time when you didn't even get to the baking part yet. So this stuff saved me time, and the only ingredient is sweet potatoes which is pretty cool. This is what it looks like:

You may recognize this brand from your Thanksgiving season because they also sell organic pumpkin. Speaking of pumpkin, you can choose to use that as well. Personally, I'm pumpkin'ed out so sweet potatoes it is.

I added dark chocolate chips and strawberries to some, but I have to admit- my favorite ones were the ones that had banana slices and chocolate chips in them.

Okay anyway, recipe below. It can be meal-prepped, and I highly suggest enjoying it with some melted nut butter and a cozy warm drink :) Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tbsp. cinnamon
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1 cup nut milk
  • 1 fifteen oz can sweet potato puree (or just under 2 cups baked sweet potato)
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 2 tsp. honey
  • Cooking spray (I used the coconut oil kind)
     

Directions:

  • In a medium bowl, mix the dry ingredients (the first 4)
  • Whisk the eggs in a small bowl. Melt the coconut oil
  • In a large bowl, combine the milk, sweet potato, eggs, coconut oil, and honey. Mix until smooth
  • Fold in the dry ingredients. Tried to be fancy with ~fold in~, but basically just pour in the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients while you mix. Try not to over mix
  • Spray (or grease) a large pan and heat over medium heat
  • Once the pan is hot, pour about 1/4 cup of the batter onto the skillet for each pancake
  • Add toppings (I used banana slices, strawberry pieces, and dark chocolate chips!)
  • Let cook until little bubble begin to appear on the pancakes. Flip, and cook for another couple minutes on the other side. I re-sprayed the pan each time so the pancakes didn't stick
  • And there you have it. Bone apple tea.
     

Tips for Batch Cooking:

So as you can see from the first picture, this recipe makes a good amount of pancakes. If you're like myself, and are only cooking for 1, you may be like no way are these ever going to work unless i eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner, right? I already think I'm going to turn into a sweet potato with the amount I consume, so thankfully that's not the case.

I only had a couple when they were fresh out of the pan (I just have to taste test everything lol). I then placed a piece of wax paper in between each pancake, tossed them in a container, and stored them in the freezer. I re-heated them in a pan or in the microwave throughout the week.
