Healthy Sweet Potato Pancakes


These healthy sweet potato pancakes are fluffy and full of flavour! Perfect for a healthier breakfast or brunch!


Units Scale
  • 1 medium-sized sweet potato
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 egg whites
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/4 cup Greek yoghurt, unflavoured (fat-free is okay)


  1. Microwave the sweet potato for 5-8 minutes, or until soft. Allow it to cool slightly before removing the skin.
  2. Blend the oats until they resemble a powder. Set aside in a large bowl.
  3. Blend the sweet potato until smooth. Mix in the oats, egg, egg whites, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and Greek yoghurt to form sweet potato pancake batter.
  4. Scoop (using a ½ cup measure) the batter into a pan over medium-heat. Cook for 1-2 minutes. Flip gently, and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
  5. Do the same for the remaining batter. Serve up your pancakes, and add whatever toppings your heart desires!
