Sweet Potato and Cinnamon Pancakes

We love pancakes! They’re a tasty treat that can be loaded up with savoury or sweet toppings and enjoyed for breakfast, brunch, dinner, or dessert.

But pancakes don’t always have to be made the classic way with flour, eggs, and milk. In this week’s Healthy Heart Programme, we’ve switched it up and made fluffy Sweet Potato and Cinnamon Pancakes, for a sweet and savoury treat your taste buds need to try!

For our recipe, we combine eggs and cinnamon with baked sweet potato to add a nutritious twist to our pancake batter, before flipping away the mixture in the pan.

The trick to the perfect pancake? It’s all in the flip! Remember not to flip the pancake until it starts to bubble, then you know it’s perfectly golden on the bottom.

Once you’ve got your perfect golden-brown pancakes, top them with juicy pomegranate seeds, crunchy walnuts, and creamy 0% fat Greek yoghurt and enjoy while warm!

These pancakes are packed with nutritious ingredients and provide 19g of protein per serving. They make a great alternative to standard pancakes or waffles for a weekend brunch.

  2. Blend to make a smooth pancake batter.
  3. Heat a frying pan to a medium heat and spray generously with low calorie oil spray.

  5. Reduce the heat to low.
  6. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side.
  7. Remove from pan once cooked and place under tin foil to keep warm.

Want to save time and bulk prep our Sweet Potato and Cinnamon Pancakes? Why not double or triple the ingredients and make a bigger batch of pancake batter. Simply cook the pancakes and then portion up and freeze for up to 6 months. Reheat from frozen to maintain the texture -- we recommend microwaving for 20 seconds for a single pancake or 60 seconds for 5 pancakes.
