Sweet Potato Pancakes

IMG_3877Are you wanting to sneak a few veggies into your kids meals without them knowing?  Or, want to jump start your day with some added fiber?  These sweet potato zucchini pancakes are worth a try!  I cook 1-2 batches at a time and then freeze some.  We eat them for breakfast or as a side dish for dinner.  They are good plain or with honey for a little added sweetness.


  • Pancake Mix (I use Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Mix)
  • 1 cup pureed sweet potatoes (about 2-3 potatoes)
  • 1 zucchini squash, shredded
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded


Peel and cut potatoes into 2 inch chunks.  Cover in a large pot with water and bring to a boil.  Cook approximately 15 minutes or until tender.  Drain water and transfer potatoes to food processor.  Blend until smooth.  Sometimes a little milk is needed to make it a smooth consistency.

Follow instructions on your pancake mix for making 8 pancakes.  Add 1 cup pureed sweet potatoes.  (If you have left over – its great with just a little bit of cinnamon on top).  Shred zucchini and squeeze into a paper towel to remove excess water.  Add zucchini and cheddar and stir.

In a pan over medium heat, cook pancakes 1-2 minutes on each side or until golden.  I cook mine in coconut oil.
