There is nothing like fluffy flapjacks in the morning, right? Our Sweet Potato Pancakes are definitely a recipe you’re going to fall in love with!


Toppings of choice, such as:


  1. Add all ingredients  into a high speed blender and run until smooth. Allow it to sit for 5 minutes, and in the meantime, preheat a skillet over medium heat.

  2. Add batter into skillet, 1/3 cup at a time, and fill with as many pancakes as you can comfortably fit. I can do 3 in my skillet.

  3. Cook on each side on medium-low heat for about 3 minutes. Flip when the center starts to bubble. Place cooked pancakes onto a clean plate which you can keep warm in the oven at its lowest setting. Complete with the remaining batter.

  4. To serve, top the pancakes with anything you’d like! We chose almond butter, maple syrup, coconut flakes, goji berries and cacao nibs.


  • If you don’t have oat flour, simply take 1 1/2 cups rolled oats and process them alone in a high speed blender until a flour like consistency is reached.
  • To bake sweet potatoes: Thoroughly wash and prick your sweet potatoes each 2-3 time with a fork or knife. Wrap them in parchment paper and then with foil, then place them directly on the oven rack in the middle of the oven. Turn the oven on to 425F and bake for 40 minutes or until sweet potatoes are soft. Cool completely before using.

    Yum! I love the idea of sweet potato pancakes. I’m going to have to give this a try!

  5. Sweet potatoes are my go to ingredient in autumn. Never really crossed my mind to make sweet potato pancakes! So smart! Can’t wait to try them ;

  6. Cassie says:

    Hmmm, if I make this recipe of pancakes, I just might eat the entire batch! Whelp, what can you do. It’ll boost my vitamin A immensely! LOL!

  7. Audra Post says:

    So delicious! Thanks for the recipe—gluten free pancakes that the whole family actually likes!

  8. Fareeda says:

    I made these pancakes yesterday for breakfast. They were so fluffy and delicious.

    I omitted the maple syrup. I also had to add an extra 3/4 cup milk, as the batter was quite thick. I slathered on peanut butter on one pancake and tahina on the other. Then I topped the pancakes with loads of blueberries and sliced kiwis. Heavenly!!!


  9. Ashley says:

    Made these this morning, I am in love! The whole time I was cooking them, my kids kept asking if I was making cinnamon rolls, haha! Which to me they totally tasted like one. Thank you for what’s most likely going to be a weekly staple in this house!

  10. Mimi says:

    These pancakes are fantastic – by far the best vegan pancakes I’ve ever had! Perfectly spiced, sweet, and gooey. I topped mine with sautéed cinnamon apples and pecan butter and they were divine. Thanks for the great recipe!

  11. Elisabeth says:

    I tried these and the batter was great, but they didn’t bubble and were so mushy and sticky and I couldn’t flip them… it turned into a giant mess in my pan. Something is not right with the ratio of this recipe. I measured everything

    • Chris Petrellese says:

      So sorry to hear this! What kind of pan were you using? If it wasn’t non-stick did you grease the pan before adding the batter?
