Two Ingredient Sweet Potato Pancakes- So easy to make and great for kids!  Gluten free, dairy free, and paleo!

 Yah!  It’s Thursday!  That means it’s almost Friday, which means it’s almost the weekend :)

I have to admit that this is kind of a kid’s recipe.  I mean, I happily eat these and think they taste delicious, but I came up with this recipe specifically with my little one in mind.

I feel like I talk about him a lot, but for those that don’t know, I have an almost 10 month old!  A really freaking cute almost 10 month old if I do say so myself :)  He was pretty slow to come around to solids and there was a time when I thought he might be on milk forever, haha!

Thankfully, he slowly came around to purees and now he loves finger food that he can pick up and feed to himself.  He loves eggs and he loves sweet potatoes so I thought it would be fun to make him some pancakes using those ingredient.  And, sure enough, he gobbles them up!

They’re so easy to make.  All you gotta do is whisk together some egg and sweet potato puree and then fry them up and they’re ready to go.  I put a little maple syrup on mine and I swear, they taste just like French toast.  

You definitely don’t have to be a baby to enjoy these.  They’re also paleo, gluten free and dairy free.

    He is just too adorable Izzy!!! I actually have a bunch of leftover sweet potato puree right now from another recipe – I need to whip myself up some pancakes!

      Hi Khloe, you can definitely make them ahead and refrigerate them! I haven’t frozen them myself, but I don’t see why you couldn’t!

    Doubled the recipe..no matter what I used coconut oil, olive oil pam, no oil these were wet and unflipable. They fell apart and were just a mess :( Love sweetpotato and wanted these for my little one they just didnt work for me at all

      Hi Stacey, I’m sorry you had issues with the recipe. Hmm, maybe try just doing the normal recipe without doubling it? I’ve never had them be wet and unflappable before though, so I’m not sure.

    I’m vegan, so I use flaxseed mixed with water as an egg substitute. I’m wondering if you’ve tried this with these sweet potato pancakes.

    • She Likes Food says

      Hi Maril, since there’s only two ingredients I don’t know that it would work very well with an egg substitute but I haven’t tried it yet. I’ll try soon though! Let me know if you try it and it works out!
