sweet potato pancakes


I experimented with this recipe to try and make the right combination of yummy and healthy.  Try them with fruit, a dollop of part-skim ricotta for more protein or just some maple syrup with some toasted pecans spread on top.  I used Bob’s Red Mill Protein Whey powder but you could use whatever you might have at your local store.  This recipe makes about 12 regular size pancakes and each one is 100 calories with 6 grams of protein…so eat at least 3 for a generous amount of protein.  Double the batch and freeze them for a quick breakfast during the week…enjoy!
