As an avid sweet potato lover, finding ways to incorporate this healthier carb to my life has been quite interesting and a lot of fun too.

How so?… you ask

Well, come to find out sweet potatoes make for an excellent base to so many recipes we love to eat but sometimes cannot due to dietary restrictions or simply by choice. A perfect example is the classic hamburger which can be replaced by a delicious sweet potato veggie burger if eating meat (or too much of it) isn’t on menu these days. Sweet Potatoes are also amazing added to salads, paired with fish and seafood or in replacement of simple carbs, such as in this delicious twist of the classic SpaghettiSweet Potato & Meatballs recipe

Paleo Sweet Potato Pancakes

by Silvia Ribas
Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 35 minutes
Total: 40 minutes
Servings: 2 -3 servings


  • 1 lg sweet potato cooked (about 2 cups)
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tbsp almond flour
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric
  • pinch sea salt to taste


  • To cook the sweet potato you have 3 options; Bake at 375F degrees for about 45 mins OR you can microwave it for 8 mins (poke wholes with a fork!) OR you can cut in small chunks and steam it for 20 mins. For this recipe I like the steaming method!
  • Place all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix to combine. Add more almond flour if you need to thicken the consistency.
  • Heat a greased flat pan/ skillet and then turn it to medium low heat. Add an ice cream scoop of sweet potato batter into the pan and let it cook on each side for about 2-3 minutes or until lightly brown and easily detaching from the pan. Proceed until all the batter has been used.
  • Top it with berries, honey, yogurt, almond butter for an extra dose of protein and nutrition!


These sweet potato pancakes take longer to cook then traditional pancakes.
