Sweet Potato Pancakes

We all know that pancakes are an American breakfast staple. To be honest I’ve never been a fan of eating a sweet breakfast but since I married Bobby and got my health coaching certification I’ve found myself experimenting more often with different foods. 

During the past couple of months, I’ve made a point of making brunch at home every Sunday. I enjoy playing around the kitchen and look forward to bringing something different to the table every week… These pancakes are the product of that.

The addition of sweet potatoes to a pancake batter is a delicious sweet surprise that will nourish your body by giving it tons of fibers and minerals… A great and healthy way to start your day!
