These sweet potato pancakes are lightly sweet and full of sweet potato flavor. These paleo pancakes will keep you full for hours!
These sweet potato pancakes truly bring back all the childhood memz for me. Every other year when I was a kid, my whole extended family would get together to spend a week together in a big house on the beach in South Carolina. My sweet Uncle would make healthier whole wheat pancakes (he was into healthy ingredient swaps before it was cool) super early in the morning as we were starting to wake up. Being the little brat that I was, I informed him that I was not a fan of his “healthy” pancakes and had to drown them in syrup 😂. Now all these years later he makes a healthy sweet potato pancake recipe and I’m immediately like hand it over! This recipe, developed by my uncle, is so easy and delicious to make. You’re going to love it!

These sweet potato pancakes are lightly sweet and full of sweet potato flavor. They’re paleo, packed with protein, and will keep you full for hours!
- 1/2 cup sweet potato, mashed
- 2 eggs
- 3 tbsp almond flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- Mix together all ingredients until smooth (either by hand or with a blender)
- Lightly coat a nonstick skillet with oil and heat over medium low.
- Scoop the batter onto the skillet by 1/4 cup, and cook until bubbles appear on top (there will be minimal bubbles so keep an eye on it).
- Flip and cook until golden brown on the other side.
- Top with all your favorite toppings!
- There are several ways you could prepare your mashed sweet potato: boil, steam, or bake are the best options. Once the potato is cooked and tender, peel it, and mash the flesh.
- Toppings! A pancake is not a pancake without toppings. I like to top mine with maple syrup, fresh fruit, or my favorite nut butter.
