Sweet Potato-Pecan Pancakes

(6 servings)

  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 cups pecans (chopped and toasted)
  • 2 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (or cinnamon) 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup fat-free milk
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs (beaten)
  • 3/4 cup sweet potatoes or yams (cooked and mashed)
Spoon flour mixture into dry measuring cups and level with a knife. Combine flour, 2 Tbsp. pecans, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice mix and salt in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, combine milk and next four ingredients (brown sugar through eggs) then add to flour mixture, stirring until smooth. Stir in sweet potatoes.

Spoon mixture (about 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake) onto a hot nonstick griddle. Turn pancakes once the tops are covered with bubbles or after about 90 seconds. Cook an additional minute until golden brown.

Sprinkle pancakes with 2 Tablespoons of pecans and top with real maple syrup and serve!
