Sweet Potato Cinnamon Pancakes

As you all know I love my smoothie-bowls for breakfast. However, I wanted to get some other options for my breakfast. I tried to eat something savoury but after around 12 hours without eating, my body cries for something sweet in the morning. Therefore I came up with these amazing sweet potato pancakes. They are gluten - , sugar - and diary free so suitable for almost everyone except vegans. It needs a little bit preparation the day before, but other than that, it is super simple and tastes amazing. Give it a try.

INGREDIENTS (4 thick pancakes)

  • 1 Medium sweet potato
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Tsp cinnamon
  • 1 Tsp Maca powder (organic burst)
  • 1 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • Blueberries
  • optional: coconut syrup or greek yogurt

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Peel the sweet potato and cook in boiling water until soft (can be done the night before)
  2. Mash sweet potato with a fork and add eggs, cinnamon, maca powder and coconut flour. 
  3. Heat coconut oil in frying pan. With a wooden spoon form little pancakes and fry from each side for about 5 minutes.
  4. Top with berries, syrup, yogurt (if dairy is ok for you) or any other topping you like.
