Recipe: Paleo Sweet Potato Pancakes

I’m posting this here for my own benefit, because I make these a lot and can never remember the recipe. But more importantly, since the original site that holds this recipe, like most cooking sites, is stuffed to the gills with browser-crippling ads. I’m a stickler for giving online credit when it’s warranted, but I’m not even going to pay that site the respect of a link back. #bahhumbug

1/2 cup sweet potato
2 eggs*
1 tbsp coconut flour
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon**
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp vanilla
coconut oil

  1. Microwave/bake/boil potato(s) until mashable. You can cut them into quarters and stick them in the fridge to speed up the process. I like to microwave them with the skins on. I have a good blender so it doesn’t need overcooking to get it to mix.
  2. Let potato(s) cool before mixing so the eggs don’t cook.
  3. Mix together all ingredients (except coconut oil), and beat just until a batter forms.
  4. Heat coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat.
  5. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter out and cook until bubbles start to form. Flip the pancake and cook for about another minute or two until fully cooked.

* You can substitute a large banana for 2 of the eggs here.
** For Pete’s sake, bakers. You do not need this much cinnamon in anything. This is probably the ceiling amount for this recipe, but it’s probably better to use less.
