Sweet Potato Banana Pancakes

Rated as 4.75 out of 5 Stars

"I fell in love with the sweet potato pancakes at Cracker Barrel®. I decided that I wanted to come up with my own, healthier version. This is what I put together, and it has been a hit every single time I have made them! Not only are they delicious, but they are also very good for you. Win win! These pancakes are loaded with all-around nutrition and tasted delicious with pretty much any topping. After you are done, just add the topping of your choice. I like honey, agave, or the Maple Agave Syrup from Trader Joe's®. Enjoy!"

  1. Fill a pot with water and bring to a rolling boil. Stir in sweet potato and return to a boil. Cook until sweet potato is tender, 7 to 10 minutes; drain.
  2. Mash sweet potato in a small bowl with a fork.
  3. Mix 1 cup mashed sweet potato, eggs, milk, oat flour, protein powder, flax seeds, pumpkin pie spice, and baking powder together in a bowl. Stir in banana, almonds, pecans, and walnuts until batter is combined.
  4. Melt coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat. Pour enough batter into the skillet to create a 4- to 6-inch pancake. Cook, flipping once, until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes per side.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You may opt to use some vanilla extract to taste if you decide not to use vanilla protein powder.
  • If you prefer, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger, and 1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg can be substituted for the pumpkin pie spice.
  • Almond milk can be substituted for the milk if desired.
