Healthy Breakfast – Yam Pancakes
Guest Post by Amy Roskelley, author of the blog, Super Healthy Kids.
Ingredients and Directions:
½ cup of cooked and cooled yam, scooped out of its skin (leftovers are perfect!)
1 cup low fat milk
½ tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. vanilla
Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth and runny.
Then put in a bowl:
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
Next, add the liquid ingredients to the dry. You can add more milk if you need to for the consistency of pancake batter. I like mine thin, so it pours easily and cooks thoroughly.
Then pour batter onto a hot griddle. Flip pancake when it begins to bubble.
Then EAT! MMMM!
