Sweet Potato Pancakes with Almond Butter Maple SyrupRecipes by Caroline Jarvis Photography

So Easter morning I woke up with the biggest craving for pancakes…but not just any pancakes, sweet potato pancakes. I was inspired immediately when I opened the fridge and saw two left over baked sweet potatoes from the night before. I started day dreaming about the different ingredient options and decided I would make them with oat flour….yummy 🙂 and perfect flour for breakfast food! I ground up fresh extra thick oats in my food processor, melted some coconut oil, made a flax egg, pealed half a sweet potato, got out the almond milk, combined some spices, greased my pan with coconut oil spray and was ready to go. Simple, easy and extremely filling! 🙂 Also, to top it off, I made a little concoction with maple syrup and almond butter. I added a tablespoon of maple syrup with a teaspoon of almond butter and a little bit of water and mixed it really well to form a little sweet maple almond butter syrup…..guys, you gotta try it. Not sure where these random cravings and ideas struck but it was delicious. Oh yea, and I added a few walnuts (because I didn’t have pecans) on top for extra crunch, protein, and macros.

Warning….these are extremely amazing, addicting and FILLING. I didn’t eat again until Easter Dinner. This recipe is filled with energy that last a longggg time and normally I’m snacking and eating little meals all throughout the day. For easy measures, I will provide exact measurements below. But if you are looking for a yummy, filling and easy recipe to make for your little ones, friends or family….this is it. Just bake a couple sweet potatoes the night before and the next morning it’s really simple. You could even purchase oat flour from the store but you can easily grind up oats that you might already have in your pantry at home.

Also, I made a “flax egg” by combining 1 tablespoon of flaxseed meal with 3 tablespoons of water and you stir it up really well and let it sit in the fridge for at least 15 mintues or overnight if that’s easier to remember.  It turns thick, sticky and helps binds things together like an egg.  It’s super simple and adds extra fiber and essential fatty acids. You could absolutely use 1 real egg in replace of this. You could also replace the almond milk with real milk but use a touch less being as it is probably thicker.   Hope you guys enjoy my random recipes on the blog.  Comment below and share this post and let me know if you would like to see more recipes!
