  • Summary

    These vegan sweet potato pancakes are so nice and fluffy, and they come together in no time. I used spelt flour, but you could also use all-purpose or whole wheat pastry flour for them. They can probably be made gluten free as well: try a blend of oat and teff flours like I did in this pancake recipe.

    Ingredients

    • 2 tbsp ground flax + 4 tbsp water
    • 11/2 cup whole spelt flour
    • 1/3 cup brown sugar or coconut sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • 2 tsp cinnamon
    • 1/4 tsp nutmeg (freshly ground)
    • 1½ cup soy milk (or another non-dairy milk)
    • 1 tsp apple cider or white vinegar
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp mashed sweet potato
    • 2 tbsp coconut, canola, or grapeseed oil + more for frying pancakes (or use Earth Balance to fry)
    • real maple syrup
    • vegan tempeh bacon (I used Tofurky brand. There's an even better recipe for vegan tempeh bacon in my book)
    • toasted coconut, nuts and/or seeds
