Happy Wednesday, Friends! Aren’t you happy we’re midway into the week?
Oh and it’s Hump Day, too. So, Happy Hump Day and Wellness Wednesday and everything in between. Haha!
Yes, I know that it’s Wellness Wednesday so I’ll keep things healthier with this Banana Mango Raspberry ‘Sunrise’ Oats Smoothie which is tropics in a glass. Full of fruity flavor, this smoothie is creamy, enjoyably thick, and super easy to make—-whipped together in just 5 short minutes. A healthy way to stat your day or even replace a meal.
But the best part of this week is sharing these sweet potato pancakes! I’m super excited because these pancakes are SO GOOD! Yum! Much like these Vegan Banana Pancakes, these pancakes are light, fluffy, and thick!
I don’t know about you guys, but I love thick pancakes. Of course, they can’t be overly thick to the point that they aren’t still light and fluffy.
Personally, I find that thicker pancakes and waffles soak up the maple flavor nicely. Haha!
If you’re a real die-hard fan of sweet potatoes like I am, then these Loaded Spinach, Bacon, Egg, + Cheese Sweet Potato Boats would be the perfect addition to your plates, meal prep for the week ahead, or even to enjoy for brunch.
Oh and since Sweet Potatoes are the topic of conversation when it comes to the recipe, DID YOU KNOW that they are really great at:
They actually contain more fiber than regular potatoes! Who knew? Plus, they are good sources of magnesium, which is what helps aid them in being a great facilitator in digestion.
Since they are rich in beta-carotone (a major antioxidant), they are awesome at defending your body from a wide variety of issues. In addition, they contain other great antioxidants which include: Vitamin C and B-complex, iron, and phosphorous.
Yes, that’s right! Sweet Potatoes are great at soothing the stomach and intestines. The previous listed vitamins that help to boost your immune system also are great at curing stomach ulcers. Plus, the roughage in sweet potatoes help to combat constipation and acid formation, which both help to reduce the chances of ulcers.
Now time for the recipe.
Start by whisking together the organic all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and sea salt in a large bowl and set aside.
In a separate bowl, add the sweet potato puree, eggs, vegetable oil, coconut milk, and maple syrup and whisk together until well combined. Add the apple cider vinegar and mix together well again.
Now, add the wet ingredients in with the dry ingredients and stir together with a spatula until well combined. **Try not to Over-mix.**
Add a thin slice of butter to a heated medium skillet and pour 1/3 cup of batter unto the surface of the skillet. Cook for about 1-2 minutes (until batter begins to bubble) and gently flip pancake to it’s opposite side, cooking another 1-2 minutes. Be sure to gently press down on pancake to ensure that center cooks through.
Once cooked and lightly brown, remove pancake from heat and repeat steps until all batter is used.
To serve, stack pancakes onto one another and add 1 Tbsp of peanut butter, sliced bananas, pumpkin/grain granola atop and lightly drizzle with maple syrup, if desired.
