Lately, I’ve been smitten with healthy pancakes! My friend, Emily, of Sweets and Beets, got me started. I’ve never really been a pancake girl. I have NEVER been able to successfully make them, so I never really got too into them. I always end up with a soupy, splattered mess. However, about a month or so ago I gave her Big Sexy Vegan Pancake recipe a try. Still, I ended up with kind of a mess… I just can’t do pancakes!!! Admittedly, I also did not have the right “pancake tools” at the time – an awful spatula and a terrible pan. But what I DID end up with was still delicious. Despite my mess and lack of appropriate kitchen gear, it got me inspired!
Since, I’ve purchased an adequate spatula and pan and I’ve been trying my hand at a few different healthy recipes. You may remember my chickpea pancakes from a while back AKA my first successful pancake! I’ve also always been a fan of the two ingredient egg and banana pancakes. I usually end up with kind of a mess with those, but still edible. Today, laying in bed before actually getting up I was going over what I might want for breakfast and I though of those banana egg pancakes. Then, I remembered that I had some sweet potatoes that have just been begging to be used. And…. without further adieu…. I ended up with two ingredient SWEET POTATO and egg pancakes!
To my surprise, they were perhaps my most successful pancake yet. The “batter” was kind of runny, so I was immediately hesitant. But they cooked and flipped VERY well. All you need are….
And of course, whatever extras you would like!
I’m happy with my transition from a pancake flop to a pretty decent pancake maker! So now I’m throwing it to you….
Have you experienced any fun kitchen transitions? Do you have a favorite go-to breakfast?
