Thanks to Samantha Quinn of Mumma Love Organics for this wonderful recipe

These nutritious pancakes are ideal for breakfast, lunch, dessert…Your kids will devour them – no persuasion required!

Makes 4 mini pancakes

Prep time: 30 minutes

Cooking Time: 5 minutes


100g sweet potato

75g coconut flour

1 tsp vanilla essence

2 beaten eggs

1 banana

75ml milk

15g butter


Peel and dice the sweet potato and then steam cook it for 15-20 minutes until tender. Drain and mash the cooked potato and then set aside.

Place the milk, butter, eggs and banana into a food processer and blend to a smooth paste. Add the sweet potato and blend again.

Sift the flour and cinnamon into a medium bowl. Blend in the sweet potato and banana mixture to form a batter.

Preheat a little oil of your choice in a frying pan over a medium heat. Using a big serving spoon, place a quarter of the mixture into the pan. Use the spoon to make a circle with the mixture. Cook for around 2-3 minutes on each side, turning once with a spatula when the surface begins to bubble.

Mumma Love Organic’s Tip: If you need a chocolate hit, add a handful of chocolate chips into the mixture!
