Happy Thursday! My name is Jennifer and I am the Chief Household officer at Savoring the Thyme.  For me, the Holidays mean snuggling up with my friends and family, sharing many laughs and tasty recipes.
One of my favorite homemade gifts to nibble on include Christmas Compound Butter  , Crunchy White Chocolate-Orange Cranberry Bark,  and Sweet Potato Gingerbread Pancakes.

Even better is giving a gift that the receiver can make to share with their loved one in a semi-homemade fashion.  Plus, this recipe has a healthy boost!

Sweet Potato Gingerbread Pancakes
Delicious Sweet Potato Gingerbread Pancake recipe by Jennifer
  • ¾ cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup 1% milk
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 sweet potato, cooked until tender, peeled and pureed
  • Cooking spray
  1. Prepare the sweet potato*
  2. Combine the contents of the jar and set aside.
  3. In another large bowl, whisk eggs and then add milk through vanilla and whisk well. Add the ‘wet’ mixture to flour mixture, stirring just until moist.
  4. Fold in the pureed sweet potato.
  5. Spray a skillet with cooking spray and heat the skillet over medium heat. Pour ¼ cup amounts in the pan and cook until you see bubbles start appearing. Flip the pancake.
  6. Cook the pancakes a minute or so longer, set aside and repeat. Top with some fruit and a bit of real maple syrup.
Sweet Potato Note:
  1. I pierced a washed and dried sweet potato several times with a fork and placed the potato on a plate. I microwaved it for 5 minutes, flipped the potato over and microwaved an additional 4 minutes. The potato was soft and when squeezed, could easily be mashed.
