These sweet potato pancakes with whipped coconut cream are simply heavenly, and they include only clean ingredients! They take a little time and effort but would make a great brunch with the girls (just add mimosas), a fun date with your significant other, or a weekend activity to complete with your kids!…Make them clean the dirty dishes, of course.

(Makes 3 large pancakes): Peel and cut 1 small sweet potato into chunks and boil for 12-15 minutes, until soft. Drain, and mash potatoes with fork. Add in two eggs and stir to combine. Next add 1/4 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and 3 T almond flour. Stir or use an immersion blender to reach a smooth consistency. Pour 1/3 of the batter on a greased pan (I used avocado oil) and cook on medium heat for 2-3 minutes on each side. Turn down heat and add more avocado oil if needed for the rest of the remaining batter.

All you need to do for the “whipped cream” is put a can of coconut cream in your fridge overnight, then put the amount you want to use in a bowl and either whip with a fork or use an immersion blender to achieve a “whipped cream” consistency.

I added some banana slices, walnuts, and a tiny bit of organic maple syrup, and WOAH was this good. Add a cup of coffee (see yesterday’s post) and your sweet tooth and belly will be completely satisfied. Swipe for video tutorial.
