Sweet Potato Pancakes

Sweet Potato Pancakes

Serves 2


2 small sweet potatoes (11.3oz), peeled and chopped into medium chunks

4 eggs, whisked

2 tablespoons coconut flour

1 teaspoons cinnamon, plus more for sprinkling

1 teaspoon maple syrup, plus more for topping

Coconut oil or coconut spray, for cooking


  • Peel the sweet potatoes and dice into medium cubes. Fill a saucepan with about 2 inches of water cover and bring to a boil ( if you have a steam basket you can place in the bottom of the pot). Drop the sweet potato in and steam for about 10 minutes or until tender when pierced with a fork.
  • Strain the sweet potatoes and transfer the steamed sweet potatoes to a bowl and mash with a potato masher or a fork.
  • Add the whisked eggs into the bowl with the sweet potatoes with the coconut flour, cinnamon, and maple syrup. Using a whisk, whip the mixture until it is fully incorporated.
  • Melt coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat (or spray).
  • Once the pan is hot, using a ladle or a ¼ cup measuring cup pour pancakes in the skillet.
  • Cook each side about 3-5 minutes or until browned.
  • Divide pancakes onto plates and sprinkle with cinnamon and maple syrup. Enjoy!
