  • 1 medium-sized sweet potato pre-cooked*
  • 3 Tbsp. almond flour
  • 2 Tbsp. nut milk
  • 1 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp. nut butter I used almond butter
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • pinch salt

For serving (optional):


  • In a food processor or blender, combine all pancake ingredients.**
  • Blend on high until smooth and creamy—about 2 minutes, scraping sides as needed.
  • Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat and lightly grease. Once hot, drop a heaping Tbsp. of pancake batter onto the skillet and gently spread with the back of a spoon.
  • Cook each pancake for 1-2 minutes, flip, and cook for another 1-2 minutes on the other side. Pancakes should be dark and crisp on the outside, and soft on the inside.
  • Keep cooked pancakes on oven-safe pan in oven set to “keep warm” or low until ready to serve.
  • Serve pancakes warm with optional toppings. Leftovers will keep refrigerated in airtight container for up to 3 days, though best enjoyed fresh.


*An easy way to cook a sweet potato fast is to prick it with a fork or knife a few times around the outside. Wrap in dry paper towel and microwave on high for 5-10 minutes, or until soft, flipping halfway through.
Note also that my food processor has a sharp blade so I do not peel my sweet potato. If your food processor is slow or needs the blade replaced, I recommend peeling your potato after microwaving it.
**You can also throw everything in a bowl and mash with a fork—it takes an extra minute but still will taste amazing!
