sweet potato pancakes

Here's a somewhat savoury take on pancakes with a topping. There are those people who are completely repulsed by the idea of mixing sweet with savoury- You know, like pineapple on pizza: IT'S JUST WRONG- and then there are people like me who are really not.
There's a sweetness to this topping that compliments the pancakes perfectly but it's also not so sweet that you wouldn't want to eat it for lunch. Because that's when I ate the above, served with broccoli and cauliflower, spinach and soya beans as a late lunch that kept me full and satisfied for the rest of the day. Alternatively, with Shrove Tuesday coming up, why not have this for your dinner? You could start the day off with mini banana and peanut butter ones  and then settle down in the evening with these sweet potato kind. Yum yum...
To make, you will need..

200g sweet potato,
200g wholemeal flour,
200ml almond milk,
2 tablespoons honey,
rosemary for seasoning


1 small onion,
1 small handful green cabbage,
2 apples stewed,
1 tablespoon coconut oil

What to do...

Make sure your sweet potatoes are boiled beforehand.

Begin by preparing your topping. Peel and chop up two apples, place in a pan, cover with water and leave on the hob on a medium heat for about half an hour until soft and breaking apart. Drain and leave to cool for a little bit.

Next, chop up the onion and cabbage into small pieces and cook in a frying pan with the coconut oil. Once softened, add the apple and stir and mash together.

You could make the topping as you are doing the pancakes but if you are really clumsy when it comes to multitasking with food, like me, then it's fine to just leave to one side.

For the pancakes, all you need to do is blend the ingredients together in a food processor. For one pancake, I used about two heaped tablespoons and 200g resulted in six pancakes. Before cooking, I heated coconut oil up in the pan.

While forming your pancakes, leave the ones you have already made in the oven so they don't go cold. Also reheat your topping if you need to because it tastes much tastier warm.

Dish up, dive in, enjoy
