These are the yummiest healthy pancakes I have made to date!  They turn out pretty fluffy too!  I baked some sweet potatoes the other day, and I had one left over, so I decided to make some pancakes with it!  Sweet potatoes are SO good for you.  Check out the nutrition and health benefits they have to offer!

We see that not only are these pancakes great for you, but they are also DELICIOUS!  Every ingredient in these is good for you, so you can feel great about putting these into your body – oh, and did I mention they are gluten free?  Okay, enough selling – once you try them, they will sell themselves.  Here is the recipe!

3.) Mix well using a hand mixer.  If you want to add the blueberries into the batter, stir them in now.

4.) Melt about 1 tsp. of coconut oil in a frying pan over medium heat.  Pour 1/2 of the pancake batter into the pan and cook for about 3-4 minutes on one side until the pancake starts bubbling lightly.

5.) Use a spatula to gently flip the pancake over and cook on the other side for 2-3 minutes until the pancake is cooked through.

6.) Transfer to a plate and repeat these steps to cook another pancake with the rest of the batter, then transfer that pancake to the plate as well.

7.) Top with whatever you would like.  I topped mine with fresh blueberries, and it was great, but these are great on their own as well!
