sweet potato pancakes

last night i made sweet potatoes for dinner. we had 1 1/2 leftover- so this morning we made sweet potato pancakes. these are light and airy, and very yummy.

here's what we did:

1 1/2 baked sweet potatoes (i'm pretty sure just one large one would work)
2 cups white whole wheat flour (this is NOT white refined flour- it is from the white variety of whold wheat)
2 Tbsp coconut oil
4 eggs
about 2 tsp vanilla
1 can coconut milk
*milk to thin*

put flour into a large bowl

in a food processor, whip up the sweet potatoes and coconut milk. transfer to a bowl and mix in oil, vanilla, cinnamon and eggs (already beaten). add the wet to the dry.

grease up a skillet and go to town. this made up 16 medium size pancakes for us. so i'll be freezing quite a few.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~side note: if you don't have coconut milk try a plain yogurt- that's just what i had on hand. pancakes are forgiving- go with what you have!~~~~~~~~~~

Oh I can't wait to try these.

I made these:
last week and they were fabulous with some extra spices and craisins, but they weren't light and fluffy.

So, I'm going to try your recipe and use the food processesor!
