Pancakes are great for little kids for many reasons – they’re portable in a hurry (without syrup, of course), they’re great for practicing fork skills, they reheat well and they’re easy to make!
This recipe (original was Pumpkin Pancakes) is from a fellow blogger Cooking with Two Vegan Boys, she understands what it’s like to feed little kids!! I’m going to try her Starbucks Pumpkin Scones next!
This is a little more sweetness than I usually serve for breakfast but it was a really nice treat! My toddler loved them plain.
Sweet Potato Coconut Nog Pancakes
1 c soymilk
1 cup So Delicious Coconut Nog
1c sweet potato
2T margarine, melted – I used the new Earth Balance Coconut Spread
2T ground flax
3T sugar – I used turbinado
2c flour – I used whole wheat flour
2t baking powder
1t baking soda
1/2t ginger powder
1 In a mixing bowl combine the dy ingredients, add the wet ingredients, gently stir to combine.
2. Lightly grease a skillet or griddle, pour 1/3c of batter (or more for larger pancakes) onto the griddle. *NOTE: These pancakes were thick and cake-like! I suggest flipping them a few times, pressing down lightly to smooth them down each time.
3. Cook until golden on both sides. Serve with warm maple syrup.
