Sweet Potato Pancakes

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

I love pancakes, they’re the perfect breakfast or even anytime snack. I also like sweet potato, but eating it on it’s own can get boring after a while. So I decided to come up with a recipe that provides you with healthy carbs, a decent amount of protein, low fat and of course tastes delicious – this is a great option as your pre-workout meal for plenty of clean energy! The trick is to keep yourself to one serving ;)



Makes 1 serving (6 pancakes)



• 200g sweet potato

• ½ cup oatmeal

• 4 egg whites

• 1 egg (with yolk)

• ½ tsp vanilla extract

• ½ tsp cinnamon

• ¼ cup fat free plain yoghurt




1. Pierce the sweet potato a few times with a fork. Wrap in a paper towel and cook in the microwave for 5 minutes at full power, or until tender. Cool slightly, and remove the skin with a small knife.


2. Meanwhile, process the oats in a blender or food processor until powdery. Transfer the oats to a large bowl. Break the sweet potato into chunks, and place in the food processor. Blend until smooth. Transfer to the bowl with the oats, and stir in the egg, egg whites, vanilla, cinnamon and yoghurt.


3. After mixing together all the ingredients in a blender, spray some cooking spray and drop by spoonful onto the pan, flipping when bubbles start to form.
