Sweet Potato Protein Pancakes

I absolutely love pancakes! It was imperative that I find a healthy recipe so I can feed my pancake addiction 🙂

Let’s jump right into the ingredients!

You will need:

  • Two medium sized sweet potatoes
  • Cinnamon
  • Two eggs
  • Vanilla extract
  • Whole wheat flour
  • Your choice of protein (I kick ass with a group in Team beachbody which gives me access to the awesome Shakeology! It’s the healthiest meal of the day! 🙂 )
  • Non stick spray


Bring water to a boil and cut small pieces of sweet potato, if you are making these the same morning it will cook them faster. To save time you can always cook the potatoes the night before and store them in the fridge.

Boil the potatoes at medium heat for about fifteen minutes. Use a fork to test if they’re ready, you’ll know when they either break apart or the fork slides right out.

Get your pan ready by putting it on medium heat, oil it up with non stick spray, my preference is coconut oil 😉


While your pan heats up, get to mixing!

Drain the water, add two egg whites, a dash of cinnamon,one tablespoon of whole wheat flour, half a teaspoon of vanilla extract, and one scoop of protein. Mix that magic up with an electric mixer. If you don’t have one handy, a potato masher will do.

With a large spoon, scoop (should measure up to about half a cup) mixture onto pan and cook for about three minutes on each side.

This recipe makes about six or seven pancakes.


I like to use maple syrup but honey or agave will do just fine as well. 😉 A little goes a long way! These pancakes are moist and don’t soak up the syrup like other recipes do.

Here is the finished product. Delicious healthy pancakes!
