Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Sweet Potato Pancakes

My oh my…. I have found my new favorite pancake recipe. It is amazing, melt in your mouth good. The best part is that it is not too bad for you! Made with sweet potatoes and whole wheat flour, I don’t even feel half bad eating a couple (errr um 10?) of these hotcakes.


I found the recipe on Pinterest and changed it up a little bit. I swapped the half white flour for all whole wheat flour and used vanilla almond milk instead of dairy milk. Speaking of substitutions, I have found this amazing conversion chart for Chobani yogurt on Pinterest.  It shows you how to swap fattening oil, sour cream, and mayo for healthy protein packed yogurt.

The original recipe comes from Eat Live Run. An amazing blog that I use all the time for recipes!


1/2 large sweet potato, baked then mashed with a fork

1 cup whole wheat flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 tbsp brown sugar

1 cup vanilla almond milk

1 egg, slightly beaten

1/2 cup (heaping) mini dark chocolate chips

butter to grease skillet

maple syrup for serving


Grease a large skillet with butter and head over medium high heat.

Combine all ingredients, mixing JUST UNTIL COMBINED and drop by quarter cups onto hot skillet. Cook for about two minutes each side then serve with warm maple syrup.
