Sweet Pawtato Pancakes

I love cooking healthy alternatives for my family to enjoy, especially when I can share the meal with Gatsby and Daisy. These pancakes make a great breakfast or meal side. I used turmeric for its anti-inflammatory properties, but it pairs well with other spices and herbs.

Servings 6 pancakes


  • 3 sweet potatoes
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • coconut oil for greasing
  • Salt to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Poke holes with a fork in the potatoes and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silk pad.
  • Bake for 45-60 minutes, depending on the size of the potatoes. Let cool.
  • Peel the skin and then use a large cheese grater to shred the potatoes.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs, parsley and spice/s.
  • Mix in the shredded potatoes until well combined.
  • Heat a griddle or skillet with coconut oil over medium heat. Spoon the mixture onto the griddle as you would a pancake, 4-6 inches in diameter.
  • Cook pancakes 2-3 minutes per side.
  • Serve warm as a breakfast or side dish to your two-legged family members. Give as a treat to your doggy. (See note #2 below)


Store in the refrigerator for up to a week or freeze for future use.
  1. With the turmeric, you may also use a combination of 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon ginger for a sweeter flavor. Rosemary also pairs well with sweet potatoes.
  2. These pancakes can also be used in place of buns for burgers.
