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
cinnamon
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: http://wegottaeat.com/lstiller/recipes/sweet-potato-pancakes
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!
