These 2 Ingredient Sweet Potato Pancakes are easy to make and perfect for kids!
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.Print
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon sweet potato puree, homemade or store-bought
- Cinnamon, optional
- In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the sweet potato and egg until combined. If desired, add a small sprinkle of cinnamon (it tastes pretty delicious!).
- Heat a large pan over medium heat and add oil (coconut, olive, canola, etc…). If using non-stick, you may not need to add any oil. Spoon pancake mixture into the pan and make pancakes whatever size you like.
- Cook pancakes for 2-3 minutes, until bubbles form around the sides, and then flip and cook another 2-3 minutes. Repeat until all batter is gone.
