Sweet Potato Pancakes

Nothing beats a big pile of delicious pancakes for brekky on the weekend (or any day of the week really!). The secret ingredient to these pancakes is the mashed sweet potato that make them thick and moist while also providing a healthy dose of fiber too.  

I absolutely loved the pancakes with banana and walnuts - I highly recommend this yummy combo 😋

I would also recommend you give these pancakes a go with your kids as I think they will go down a real treat. You could make the batter in advance and keep it in the fridge. Then cook them up for a tasty after school snack and smother them with peanut butter yummm!
