Whole Wheat Sweet Potato and Chocolate Pancakes

Sharing is caring!

So starting today in BM, this week I am starting a new series of Seasonal Fruits and Veggie. I thought of combining chocolate and seasonal theme together and dish out some yummy recipes. The good thing about this theme is that it makes you think out of the box and look for recipes you never have done. First I was looking for seasonal veggies or fruits and then how I can combine it with chocolate. Over the week you will see new combinations with chocolate but I assure you they are yummy options and healthy as well.

Whole Wheat Sweet Potato and Chocolate Pancakes

For the first dish, I decided to combine chocolate with Sweet potato. Now my son loves my Whole Wheat Chocolate Banana pancake , that gave me the idea to replace banana with sweet potato. I followed my same recipe but instead of adding banana I added some boiled and mashed sweet potato. I added very less Jaggery as sweet potato is already more on the sweeter side and specially the ones which we get here, they are orange to Brown in colour in the inside and much sweeter. I topped it up with a dash of honey before serving.

I had told my Son its pancake but didn’t tell that main ingredient was sweet potato. My son took the first bite and he was like what is inside….I was like oh no, looks the combination is not working. I said…mmmmm…cocoa powder……he was I like this dish. I was relieved. After he ate one or two more bites I told him there is sweet potato in that, by then he was happily finishing them all with some more honey. He always eats his pancakes with chocolate sauce or spread but this time it was all honey. So I had my two wins.

  • Let it rest for 5 minutes.
  • Heat a non stick pan with and grease it with butter. Pour a spoonful of batter onto the hot pan and spread it to the size and thickness as desired. If the batter is thick it becomes a little difficult to spread it out. In that case just add 1-2 spoons of batter and let it take the shape.
