I have been holding out on you guys with all my breakfast recipes. I seriously have a huge stack that needs to eventually get posted on the blog. So slowly but surely they will get up here. I love making a new breakfast everyday! It keeps the mornings fresh and gives me the perfect happy boost I need to get my through the day. (Remember, breakfast is the most important meal of the day!) Since I love breakfast so much, I couldn’t fathom it would be possible to make it even more loveable. But I am magic and was able to make it happen. You know I am obsessed with Purple Sweet Potatoes. I would eat them everyday, but my grocery only ever has a few and most are not very pretty looking. So I usually have a very limited supply. A few weeks ago they only had really tiny ones, but I couldn’t leave without them so I got a few small ones thinking I would just use them to make baked fries. But then it hit me. Pancakes! I use pumpkin puree all the time in my breakfasts, so why not potato puree? And why not make it purple while I’m at it? So one morning I took a PSP (Purple Sweet Potato) and microwaved it to get in nice and soft. Then I just scraped out the puree and used it in pancakes…easy as
These pancakes were so thick, soft, and delicious. The PSP worked beautifully and gave the pancakes a lovely light lavender purple hue :) I am very proud of this creation, so without any more delay, I introduce you to my PSPcakes!
Vanilla Purple Sweet Potato Pancakes
+ 1/3 Cup of All-Purpose GF Flour
+ 1/4 Tsp Baking Powder
+ 1/3 Cup Water
+ 2 TB Purple Sweet Potato puree/mash
+ 1/4 Tsp Pure Bourbon Vanilla Extract
+ 4 Drops of Liquid Vanilla Stevia
+ In a bowl, stir the flour and baking powder together, then add all the wet ingredients.
+ Use a fork to mash around the potato in the bowl as it will be clumpy. Make it as smooth and incorporated as possible.
+ Next, heat a lightly oiled pan on medium high heat, then reduce to low and pour on the pancake batter. I made 3 medium sized cakes, but you could make whatever size you want.
+ Once the edges look dry and bubbles form over the surface (2-3 minutes), flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Repeat until all the batter is gone.
+ To top my cakes I just made some vanilla protein frosting (1TB Vanilla Protein Powder + water until desired consistency). But you can use what ever toppings your heart desires ;)
What is the craziest pancake recipe you ever had? I guess you can say this is a little #strangebutgood!
What is your favorite pancake topping? I love me some protein frosting or even my “chocolate sauce”, which is just cocoa powder mixed with water!
Have a lovely Thursday friends! We are almost done with the week! This is the first full one back from the holidays and winter break and it has been rough!
