Recipe: Sweet Potato Breakfast Pancakes

The perfect early morning sweet treat...

For some other tasty healthy breakfast options, our Blueberry Quinoa Parfait and Breakfast Burrito are also worth a look.

These sweet potato pancakes are the perfect healthy treat for a fuelling breakfast or mid morning brunch and, are a great alternative to ordinary breakfast pancakes.

Adding fruits or vegetables to your pancake batter is a great way of adding more vitamins and minerals into your diet. We’ve made these ones with a little sugar, but they taste just as great without!

Ingredients (for 6 small pancakes):

  • 2 chopped sweet potatoes
  • 250ml of milk
  • 100g of flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 40g of butter
  • 10g of sugar


Peel and steam the potatoes until soft, mashing them up in a bowl with the milk.

In another bowl, sift the flour, adding in the eggs and sugar. Then fold the mashed sweet potatoes into the mixture.

Heat up some oil in a frying pan and ladle the mixture into the pan, cooking them until they turn slighty brown in colour.

The healthy bit:

Sweet potatoes are a great source of Iron and Vitamin C and D, great for fighting of colds and boosting your immune system.

The calcium from the milk helps to maintain strength in your teeth, nails and bones.
