Ingredients

1 sweet potato
1/3 cup almond butter
2 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons maple syrup

Instructions

  1. Cook the sweet potato: first peel the skin and then prick with a fork all over. Cut the sweet potato into quarters and place in a microwave-safe dish. Cover and cook in the microwave for about 10 minutes until soft. Allow the sweet potato to cool slightly, then mash with a potato masher until smooth. Measure out 1/2 cup sweet potato and reserve any remaining for another purpose.
  2. Preheat a skillet or pan on the stovetop on medium-high heat. Coat with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Combine 1/2 cup mashed sweet potato and all other ingredients in a large mixing bowl or food processer until blended well.
  4. Use a 1/4 measuring cup to portion batter onto skillet. Use the back of a spoon to shape.
  5. Watch for bubbles on the pancake’s surface before flipping. Flip and cook for another 2 minutes.
  6. Serve immediately with your favorite toppings, such as sliced almonds.
