Sweet Potato Pancakes

  • Prep Time 5m
  • Cook Time 5m
  • Servings 4 to 6 medium-size pancakes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp.  salt
  • 1 cup  soy milk (or any other nondairy milk)
  • 2 Tbsp.  vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup mashed sweet potato
  • 1/2 cup  vegan cranberry sauce mixed with 2 Tbsp. orange juice, for garnish (optional)
  • Chopped walnuts, for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. In a separate bowl, thoroughly mix the soy milk, vegetable oil, and mashed sweet potato. Add the wet mixture to the dry and mix until smooth.
  2. Lightly coat a skillet with oil. Heat to medium low and drop ¼ cup of the batter onto the heated skillet. Cook until bubbles begin to form on the surface, about 2 minutes, then flip over and cook another 2 minutes, or until golden brown on both sides. Repeat with the rest of the batter.
  3. Top your sweet potato pancakes with the cranberry sauce mixture and walnuts.

Let’s face it, the best part of Thanksgiving (along with a break from school) is the leftovers. Aside from being delicious, this pancake recipe is a great way to continue enjoying the flavors of the holidays. Give it a try! P.S. It’s also a great recipe to help you power through a Fur-Free Friday protest, and why not a little shopping as well? 🙂
