I always try to add more greens and vegetables into my diet as possible. But I know what your thinking . . . sweet potato, carrots, green? In a pancake? YUCK!!!
HOWEVER, there are SOOOOOOOOO GOOD!!!! In these delicious pancakes, you hardly taste the carrots and spinach at all. All you taste is delicious sweet potato and cinnamon.
1 cup grated sweet potato (uncooked/raw)
2 cups homemade cashew milk
1 tbsp ground flaxseed
1 cup buckwheat flour
1 cup spinach (tightly packed)
1 large grated carrot
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
Toppings of choice: raw almond butter (or any other raw nut butter), fruit, dates, etc.
Servings: Makes 4 servings
Procedure: Heat a non-stick pan on medium/low. In a food processor process all ingredients. Spray griddle with a non stick spray (I recommend Trader Joe’s Coconut Oil Spray). Using an ice cream scooper, spoon mixture onto the pan making about 4 pancakes in the pan. Cook until edges are set, about 2 – 5 minutes (depending on your burners. All burners are different). Flip and cook until done. Top pancakes with nut butter of choice (I used raw almond butter), or toppings of choice (I put bananas and pears on mine). Enjoy!!!
