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.
