Last Updated on July 8, 2020

When you’re a paleo athlete, sweet potatoes are your best friend, right? But it can get pretty boring if you don’t find new ways to eat them. Enter the pancake. Quick, easy, and delicious! And if you’re not doing a Whole30, add a little Grade B maple syrup, ohmygosh, so good.

This is also a quick and easy post-WOD meal, as it contains eggs as well.

Sweet Potato Pancakes

Sweet Potato Pancakes

Yield: 4
Prep Time: 3 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 13 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 cups shredded Sweet Potatoes
  • 4 Eggs
  • 4 Tbsp Almond Flour, not almond meal
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Allspice
  • 1/4 tsp Sea Salt
  • Dash of Nutmeg
  • Coconut Oil, for frying

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients (except coconut oil) to a large bowl. Mix well to combine.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add some coconut oil (about 1 tsp per pancake, depends on how large your pan is). I use a small pan and cook one at a time, so I use 1 tsp of oil in my pan.
  3. Scoop approximately 1/2 cup of mixture into the pan, spreading out to about 1/2" thick. Cook about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until it is crispy and brown and the inside is firm.
  4. Continue until batter is gone, adding coconut oil to the pan as needed.
  5. Serve with coconut butter and maple syrup, if desired.

I notice this and a lot of your recipes use coconut oil for frying or for sauteeing things. I was under the impression that the low smoke point of coconut oil makes it not only a poor choice, but dangerous as when oi hits its smoke point they generally all release volatile harmful chemicals. I would love to be wrong, but the many scientific reviews show the same thing.

Could these be made in batches and frozen?

I haven't actually tried this yet, so I couldn't say for sure, but I've frozen regular almond-flour pancakes and waffles and they've been just fine, so I imagine these would work like that as well.

Forgot to add to the above, I would used coconut flour and when finished I would drizzle with a little coconut nectar or maple syrup.

I am on the hunt for a sweet potato (yam) paleo pancake recipe. I think if I were to try yours I would instead of shredding uncooked yams, I would bake them in the oven with coconut oil lathered on the skins until cooked and once cooled refrigerate then for use the following day. They could then be mashed and it would be more like a traditional pancake. Sounds good to me!

I just made these with 3 tbsp of coconut flour, and, um, I might eat the entire batch myself!! I used trader joes pumpkin pie spice instead of all the others, and it is such a welcome relief on day 22...so.many.days.of.sweet.potatoes. Thank you!
