Notes

Created by Tina Haupert for the Almond Board of California

Ingredients

  • 1 sweet potato
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1/3 Cup almond flour
  • ½ Teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup

Directions

Peel the skin off of the sweet potato and then prick with a fork all over. Cut the sweet potato into quarters and place in a microwave-safe dish. Cover and cook in the microwave until soft, about 10 minutes.

Allow the sweet potato to cool slightly, then mash with a potato masher until smooth. Measure out ½ cup sweet potato and reserve any remaining for another purpose.

Preheat a skillet or pan on the stovetop on medium-high heat. Coat with nonstick cooking spray. Combine ½ cup mashed sweet potato and the almond flour, eggs, baking powder, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and maple syrup in a large mixing bowl or food processer until blended well.

Use a ¼ measuring cup to portion batter onto skillet. Use the back of a spoon to shape. Watch for bubbles on the pancake’s surface before flipping. Flip and cook for another 2 minutes.

Serve immediately with your favorite toppings, such as sliced almonds.

Maple Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Maple Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
