1 large sweet potato, cooked & mashed
7.9 oz. egg whites
1 oz. vanilla protein powder
1.2 oz. ground flaxseed
2 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. pure vanilla extract
⅛ tsp. sea salt
⅛ tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tbsp. coconut oil, for cooking
2 tbsp. chopped pecans, for garnish
2 tbsp. maple syrup, for serving
How to Prepare
In a blender, add all the ingredients for the pancakes, except for the coconut oil, and blitz until smooth.
Add the coconut oil to a non-stick skillet and place over a medium-high heat. Pour ¼ of the pancake batter into the hot skillet and cook the pancake for 2-4 minutes, until bubbles start to appear in the center of the pancake. Flip the pancake over and cook for a further 2-3 minutes, or until golden-brown and cooked through.
Repeat the process with the remaining batter to make 2 large pancakes.
Serve the pancakes warm with the chopped pecans and a drizzle of maple syrup.
