  • 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.
