So lately I’ve been wanting breakfast breads, like waffles and pancakes. Since I’m dieting I have to find a different way to eat these things. So today after searching Pinterest, I’m trying something new, sweet potato pancakes.
Okay so this is what I use and its nutritional value:
-PB2 with chocolate, 2 tbsp: 45 cal 6 carb 4 g protein
-Cinnamon, to taste: 0 cal 0 carb 0 protein
-Stevia, to taste: 0 cal 2 carb 0 protein
-2 eggs: 140 cal 0 carb 6 protein
-2 medium sweet potatoes: 250 cal 27 carb 4 protein
This all totals: 435 calories, 35 carbs and 14 protein. Now this may sound like a lot, but you will only be eating a small portion of this. After making a large pancake for myself and smaller pancakes for my boyfriend I still have over half of the batter left.
Okay really quick, I want to talk about this peanut butter alternative. It’s called PB2. Basically, it’s peanut butter that’s been pressed to remove the oil which in turn reduces the fat and calories. And it’s still delicious. Look below, the proof is in the nutritional facts.
Now here are pictures of the other ingredients that I used.
First, cook your sweet potatoes either in the microwave or the oven. Then mash them in a bowl.
After mashing the potatoes, at all other ingredients.
Mix until you have sweet potato goop lol
Now cook your sweet potato pancakes just like you would normal pancakes. Flipping the pancakes can be a little tricky though, as they tend to fall apart pretty easily. Plus I suck at flipping pancakes anyway :?
I meet my boyfriend’s pancakes almost the same way. Instead of stevia, I use plain sugar. And I also made his pancakes smaller. They were a lot easier to flip.
And there you have it, sweet potato pancakes!!!
As mentioned in the title, this was a half win. My pancakes were a little thick, almost like cake texture. But my boyfriend’s pancakes turned out pretty good. I don’t know if it’s because I made his with sugar or if it’s because his were smaller. Next time I’ll add a banana to mine, or maybe more stevia. Give them a try yourself and tell me what worked and did not work for you.
Until next time!
