Let’s have sweet potato casserole for breakfast, but healthy and more tasty! Not only are these pancakes gluten free and paleo, they are warm, sweet and delicious too. For breakfast or brunch, they will fill you up for a taste of Thanksgiving goodness without the “too full” feel.
Sweet Potato Coconut Pancakes
- 2 large sweet potatoes, roasted
- 4 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1/2 cup shaved coconut
- a pinch of allspice
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil for each pan on pancakes
Roast the sweet potatoes in a 425 degree oven for 45 minutes and let cool at room temperature for 30 minutes or more. (Make sure to poke the potatoes with a fork before roasting to prevent steam burn!)
Peel potatoes and place them in a bowl. Mash the potatoes and add the remaining ingredients, stir until incorporated.
In a skillet pan, add the coconut oil and heat on low medium. Spoon mixture into the pan in pancake form and cook on each side about 5 minutes or until easily flipped.
Roasted Walnut Maple Syrup
- 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- pinch of salt
In a small skillet pan, add crushed walnuts to a heated pan on high heat. Roast the nuts for about 3 minutes, shaking constantly. Turn the pan down to low and add the additional ingredients. Stir and cook one minute.
Drizzle this syrup and coconut flakes over the sweet potato pancakes and enjoy.
