Benefits of Sweet Potatoes
Vitamin A–> A medium sweet potato provides 4 times the amount of recommended vitamin A. Vitamin A supports vision health, bone development, and immune function.
Vitamin C–> If you’re looking to up your vitamin C intake, sweet potatoes are for you. You’ll find 35% of your daily recommended amount of vitamin C in a medium sweet potato. Vitamin C is great for absorbing iron, fighting infection, and healing wounds.
Fiber–> Sometimes it’s hard to find a nutritious vegetable that will keep you fuller, longer. Sweet potatoes are fiber rich so they are sure to keep you satisfied until your next meal.
Complex Carbs–> Sweet potatoes are made up of complex carbs, so no sugar highs and no sugar lows!

Why Should I Make Sweet Potato Pancakes?
They are easy. The fact that you can mix eggs, flour, and sweet potato puree together to make delicious and healthy pancake recipe, still blows my mind sometimes.
You can puree your own sweet potato (learn how to HERE) or you can buy pureed sweet potatoes at the store, they will both work just fine!
They are healthy. These sweet potato pancakes are my favorite healthy pancakes so far on FFF. We all know I’ve had quite a few pancakes in my day. They are perfect for a lazy Sunday morning or for a meal prep breakfast for the week.
You can meal prep them. If you’ve never meal-prepped pancakes, it’s amazing. All you do is make a batch or two of pancakes, let them cool, then throw them in a freezer safe bag for later.
When you’re feeling like pancakes on a weekday morning, all you have to do is throw them in a toaster and BAM. Pancakes.
You can top them. I love to serve these sweet potato pancakes with a little bit of almond butter and maple syrup, but if you’re craving savory breakfast, try serving them with a fried egg. YUM.
