Recipe: Sweet Potato Pancakes

14 May 2020 no comments Rachel Guerreiro Categories Uncategorized

Yes, we did say sweet potato pancakes! This sweet and delicious dish is the perfect breakfast option and go-to snack! We love these pancakes because they are quick and easy to make and can be topped off with any and all your favorite toppings: nut butter, fresh fruit, or even better, our new-tella spread (recipe to come).


Wet ingredients:

  • 3 Tbsps. ground flaxseeds (approximately 30g)
  • ⅓ cup/80g water for activating the flaxseeds
  • 80g cooked sweet potato, mashed
  • 2 cups/500ml of soy milk (unsweetened)
  • ⅓ cup unrefined, whole cane sugar, molasses retained, such as Succanat (brand name)

Note: Store-bought pre-ground flaxseeds usually don’t work as they are often roasted before grinding which is why they won’t gel and bind; we recommend to grind a month worth of flaxseeds using a spice grinder and store the powder in the refrigerator

Dry ingredients:

  • ½ Tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup/120g whole-grain spelt flour
  • ½ cup/60g white spelt flour
  • ⅓ cup/30g chickpea flour (also called Besan flour)
  • 1 Tsp baking powder


  1. Place the ground flaxseeds in a mixing bowl with ⅓ cup of water and let it rest for 10min; flaxseeds will form a mucus gel-like paste
  2. Add mashed sweet potatoes, soy milk, and whole cane sugar and mix using a whisk
  3. In the order listed, add the dry ingredients: baking soda, all flours passed through a sieve and the baking powder
  4. Mix to combine a thick pancake batter
  5. Heat a non-stick pan to low/medium heat (the preheating is critical as otherwise, your pancakes will stick to the pan)
  6. Using a ladle measure small portions of the batter and place it in the center of the pan
  7. When bubbles appear on top of the pancake, using a spatula, slide underneath the pancake and flip it on its other side
  8. Remove and dress with your favorite toppings: maple syrup, sliced bananas, blueberries, etc.
