Sweet Potato Protein Pancakes

Leave a comment

While I was at Kelly’s bachelorette today, Mat made sweet potato protein pancakes. However, all he told me was that there was a surprise waiting for me in the fridge.  I love my husband.  🙂

Since I didn’t eat much at the brunch, I definitely needed a pick me up.  I ate three of the four pancakes he left for me with peanut butter and pumpkin smeared on top and sliced the nectarine I had brought home from San Diego (Vanessa is so awesome – she went to the grocery store and bought a bunch of snacks).


You want the recipe?  I thought so.  🙂

Sweet Potato Protein Pancakes


1 large or 2 medium sweet potatoes, microwaved for 5 minutes and cooled)

2 scoops protein powder (ours is chocolate)

2 tsp baking powder

1-2 tsp sugar or stevia

1 cup egg whites

2 tbsp flaxseed meal

1-2 tbsp vanilla extract


Mix all ingredients together.  Cook pancakes on griddle until done, like you would any other pancake.

Ta da!!
