Sweet potato banana pancakes

Standard

Somehow it has to the point where my 2 year old is a picky eater… Sigh… However, if it looks like a pancake he will eat it. I have been making pancakes with banana, egg, and almond meal. But then I decided it was time to start sneaking in veggies. I went with a naturally sweet veggie to start with and it was a hit.

Here’s Isaiah scarfing down his pancakes. He was a big fan.

Sweet Potato Banana Pancakes

Mash together:
– 2 ripe bananas
– 1 mediumish sweet potato, cooked and peeled

Mix in:
– 4 eggs
– 1 cup almond meal
– 1 tsp vanilla
– 1 tbsp cinnamon

Heat in a pan some clarified butter and coconut oil.

I used a quarter measuring cup to plop out the batter. Then I sprinkled pecans on top for good measure when they were in the pan. Make sure they are pretty sturdy before trying to flip them… Often I’ll try to distract myself momentarily so I don’t get too impatient. If they get a little toasty, that’s ok… That’s just added caramelized banana flavor… Yum!
