Healthy Pancakes!

From the book Deceptively Delicious by Jessica Seinfeld

Sweet potato puree both sweetens and boosts the nutrition of this simple, quick breakfast.
Servings: Serves 4
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sweet potato puree
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice (optional)
  • 1 cup pancake mix
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil
  • Pure maple syrup , for serving
In a large bowl, mix the water, sweet potato puree, and cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice, if using. Add the pancake mix and stir just to combine—the batter should be lumpy.

Coat a griddle or large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set it over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add the oil, and spoon the batter onto the griddle or pan, using 1/4 cup batter for each pancake.

Cook until bubbles form on top of the pancakes and the batter is set, 2 to 3 minutes. Then use a spatula to flip the pancakes and cook them until golden brown on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes.
