So we've all heard of those healthy "two ingredient" pancakes consisting of literally only one banana and a couple eggs. We think, "yay, so healthy!", then proceed to whip them up only to find that eggs combined with banana really only leaves you with some soggy, banana-y eggs. That's not to say I don't love a healthy and easy pancake, and as you've probably gathered from this article's title, I do. I just prefer mine to not be soggy pieces of eggy bananas. But that's just me.
Actually, I like my pancakes made with, wait for it... vegetables. I'm really into sneaking vegetables into any food possible, and these pancakes do just that with tons of sweet potato. It's basically the same thing as carrot cake, right? These pancakes offer more than just vegetables, though. They're low in sugar, flourless, and paleo. That means no dairy, grains, soy, or sugar. Instead they're full of sweet potato (good carbs) and eggs (healthy fats + protein) giving you a nutritious boost and long lasting energy, without the sugar crash, and especially without that sogginess.
I originally made these pancakes as a recipe for my own blog, The No Grainer, but their "student-budget" friendliness makes them totally Spoon-worthy.
Easy Veg Filled Paleo Pancakes
- Prep Time:10 mins
- Cook Time:5 mins
- Total Time:15 mins
- 1 medium sized sweet potato cut into chunks
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbsp. coconut flour
- 1/2 tbsp. honey or more if you like them sweeter
- 1/4 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp. coconut oil or butter
- Cinnamon to taste
These simply pancakes are best enjoyed straight away, but can totally be put in the freezer and reheated when you're feeling the urge to pancake. If you find they're not sweet enough for your sugar-trained tastebuds (which I actually like about them!) feel free to add more honey or maple syrup to the batter.
Enjoy these super-easy, super-healthy alternative to conventional pancakes. They'll for sure leave you feeling healthy and happy and are just as satisfying as Bisquick.
