Sweet Potato Raisin Pancakes

As much as I would love to, I cannot take full credit for this creation. I was talking with a fellow fitness foodie and she mentioned how she makes a sweet potato, raisin, cinnamon combo…I thought that sounded like pancake perfection!

I was right!! 

The raisins add the perfect texture. A nice little chewy component with some added sweetness!

That syrup drip though…

I just cannot eat pancakes without syrup! Although these are sweet enough that you could probably eat them plain.  

I think some peanut butter or cream cheese would also be great on top!

They are gluten free, grain free, no sugar added, and full of protein.

You got sweet potato…you got raisins…you can basically get in your fruits and veggies before lunch!

Caramel, Vanilla, Cinnamon, or even Peanut Butter flavored protein would work great for these!
