Sweet Potato Pancakes [recipe from the Lean Body Cookbook]

Quick question… What did you have for breakfast today?

If you are like me you get tired of eggs and oats day in and day out so I was excited to see this recipe from The Get In Shape Girl.  Check it out…

Sweet Potato Pancakes

“These are very portable and have come with me on several trips out of town for breakfast.  They are also a perfect post-workout snack since they have lots of carbs and protein. I imagine these to be something I would want to bring with me if I were going away for a weekend and was gonna workout on my trip or something to take with me to snack on during a Crossfit competition to keep me fueled.” – The GISG

Ingredients:

2 whole eggs

4oz sweet potato, cooked

1/2 cup plain 2% greek yogurt

1/2 tsp liquid stevia

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

Cinnamon to taste

Directions:

Mix in a food processor or by hand, thoroughly, until even.  You could even mash these together with your hands.  Separate into 2 – 4 pancakes, depending on how many you want, just make sure they are no more than a half inch thick to begin because they will take longer to cook through.

Place on frying pan over medium heat and let sit for 3 – 4 min before carefully flipping onto the other side.    You very well may have to flip for 2 more minutes on each side to ensure they cook all the way through but do not burn on the outsides.
