  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place sweet potato in a baking dish.
  2. Bake in the preheated oven until flesh is easily punctured with a fork, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Allow sweet potato to cool until easily handled; peel.
  3. Mash sweet potato and bananas together in a bowl using a fork or electric mixer until smooth; add eggs and vanilla extract and mix well.
  4. Whisk coconut flour, almond flour, baking powder, and cinnamon together in a separate bowl; stir into sweet potato mixture until batter is well combined and thick.
  5. Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium heat. Drop about 1/4 cup batter onto the griddle and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 4 to 5 minutes. Flip and flatten pancake with spatula and cook until browned on the other side, 3 to 5 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

These were excellent! My kids gobbled them up! They definitely have a more soft texture, but we didn't mind. I made a few changes: I only used half the recommended coconut flour (tends to make i...

Very yummy version of Paleo pancakes. I used less banana because I didn't want to taste it :) and I added water because my sweet potato and my bananas were not very moist. I think the texture wa...

The batter came out pretty thick. I added a little soy milk to thin it out. Other than that it was great. Next time I think I'll start with 1/4 cup coconut flour and add by the teaspoon if I nee...

Awesome. My 2 year old loves them. I didn’t have coconut flour so I subbed arrowroot & that worked great too.

LOVED these! I didn’t have coconut flour so I substituted Namaste gluten free flour. A few more carbs but lower fat this way. I also added 1/4t freshly ground nutmeg. Delicious and the family l...

These are fantastic! I actually made them as waffles to reduce the cooking time. Then they only need about three minutes on a low temp. Just make sure to grease the waffle iron first! (I used co...
