Sweet Potato Pancakes (Veggie Update)

A couple weeks ago I shared my efforts to introduce more veggies into our diets (especially mine).  For the first 2 weeks of the "project" I used only carrots.  We have eaten an entire bag of pureed carrots without even tasting them, sweet!

Next I am going to try sweet potatos and cauliflower.  Last night I roasted and pureed some sweet potatos.  This morning we had sweet potato pancakes and they were amazing!  I don't think I will ever make regular pancakes again.  I couldn't taste the sweet potato but I put a lot of syrup on because I didn't want to.  John loves sweet potatos so he just put a regular amount of syrup on and he could taste the potatos a little and he liked the flavor, I think the addition of cinnamon to the batter helped.  So here's the recipe...

 Sweet Potato Pancakes

1 cup water
1/2 cup sweet potato puree
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup pancake mix

Mix all ingredients.  Coat griddle or large pan with non stick cooking spray.  When pan in hot add 1 tablespoon of canola oil (or vegetable oil).  Then just cook your pancakes!  I made sure to twist the pan so that the canola oil hit all the edges of the pancakes making the edges cripsy.  They were delicious!
