How To Make Sweet Potato Pancakes

gluten free pancakes

I previously shared a recipe I learned in Costa Rica for making Grain-Free Yucca Buns. Also on that trip to Costa Rica I came accross sweet potato flour. This is a grain-free (gluten-free) alternative to traditional pancakes. And the sweetness of the flour makes what I think is a far superior pancake to the old-school flapjacks. Try this recipe at home, you won't be disappointed!

Sweet Potato Pancake Recipe


1 cup sweet potato flour

1/3 cup all purpose gluten free flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp fine sea salt 

1/2 tsp cinnamon

2 eggs

1/2 cup almond milk (or other type of milk)

2 Tbsp Olive Oil

Whisk together all dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, whisk together wet ingredients. Combine the two and whisk until smooth. Add more milk if necessary to keep the mixture pourable. On a medium-hot griddle, ladle out pancakes in large spoon sizes. When bubbling, flip. Let cook thoroughly as the sweet potato is denser than other flours and takes a few more seconds.
