Sweet Potato Pancakes

Boost the nutrition of your breakfast with these Sweet Potato Pancakes! They are flavourful, mildly sweet and packed with warm spices.

Why we love these Sweet Potato Pancakes:

As long as we’ve been eating sweet potatoes for dinner, we’ve been eating sweet potato pancakes, and we can’t get enough! The kids love them, and they got rave reviews from even the fussiest eater in my neighborhood, and that’s saying something! They have a flavor that’s reminiscent of pumpkin desserts with the kid-appeal and ease of pancakes.

The best thing about sweet potato pancakes is that you can add even more nutrients and fiber by adding fresh fruit to your breakfast! We love bananas, berries, plums or peaches. With fruit and sweet potatoes, we often don’t even need syrup. A little creamy yogurt or whipped cream can turn a boring pancake breakfast into one of our favorite desserts!

  • Cinnamon and Vanilla Extracts– Adds warm, delicious flavor!
  • Egg– Adds structure and lightness to your pancakes.
  • Flour– We used whole wheat flour, but all purpose will give you a lighter pancake. Or use a combination of both!
