Sweet Potato Spelt Pancakes

A nourishing wholefoods twist on a traditional breakfast staple. Natural sweetness from sweet potato and a little maple syrup makes this delicious recipe a brilliant breakfast or an energy filled afternoon snack for when the 3pm munchies hit.


  • 2 cups wholemeal spelt flour

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/2 med sized sweet potato

  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • 1 1/2 cups milk of choice (I used organic soy)

  • 1 tsp vanilla essence

  • 1/2 cup organic maple syrup


  • Cook the sweet potato in the microwave until flesh is soft, scoop it out and mash in a bowl with a little of the milk until smooth

  • Sift flour and baking powder into a large mixing bowl and make a well in the centre

  • Whisk eggs, milk, maple syrup and vanilla together and add to the flour a little at a time until combined

  • Add the mashed sweet potato and beat with a mixmaster until fluffy - this is important as you’re not using self raising flour so it needs to have as much air as possible to make sure the pancakes are fluffy

  • Heat a large frypan and melt a little butter over medium heat. Wipe the excess butter off with a paper towel

  • Pour batter into the pan to desired size and cook until bubbles form on the surface, flip over and cook for around another minute

  • Serve with your favourite fruits and toppings. I love berries and Mayvers Cacao Super Spread
