Family Thoughts:

These pancakes turned out so moist and delicious and they are jam packed with goodness from the sweet potato! My son couldn't eat enough of these, however my daughter said that while she liked them, she much prefers plain pancakes.

You can freeze pancakes to reheat for fast and healthy breakfast on another day!
