Sweet Potato Pancake


These 2-Ingredient Sweet Potato Pancakes by registered dietitian, Amanda Sauceda, are flour-free, full of gut-friendly fiber and include a serving of orange vegetables. Perfect for cool fall mornings!

The flax egg holds everything together and the result is a pancake that’s crispy on the outside and soft and tender on the inside. We hope you enjoy them!
