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.

Protein Kaiserschmarrn

As an Austrian my mother used to make Kaiserschmarrn with lots of sugar and topped with even more jam and cream. So I thought why not try to get a protein packed, sugar free version of this traditional Austrian dish. I found a great recipe on justget.fit  It's still rather high in calories, so I'd recommend to have it for breakfast instead of dessert.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 fresh banana
  • 2 eggs
  • 20g protein powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 Tsp coconut oil
  • blueberries and greek yogurt

INSTRUCTION

  1. Blend banana, eggs, protein powder and baking soda
  2. Heat coconut oil and pour batter into pan
  3. Let it slowly set, then make small flakes with a wooden spoon
  4. Top with blueberries and greek yogurt

If you prefer to have pancakes - just add the batter in small portions and fry until you get some small bubbles in the middle.
