Sweet Potato Pancakes

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time:
 15 minutes
Servings: 12 small pancakes
Age: 12+ months 


  • 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour (see notes)
  • 1/4 cup sweet potato puree (see notes)

  1. In a medium bowl, add all of the ingredients and stir until combined. If using cottage cheese, the batter will have chunks in it.

For small pancakes, add 1 tablespoon of batter to the skillet at a time and let cook for 3-4 minutes or until golden on the bottom and bubbles appear along the edges. Flip and let cook for another 2-3 minutes. Repeat with all of the batter.
  3. Serve and enjoy.
