Maple Sweet Potato Pancakes. These maple sweetened sweet potato pancakes are so thick and fluffy. Not to mention perfectly spiced and flavorful.
Hey everyone. Serene from House of Yumm back today with another seasonal recipe. Fall might be my all time favorite season, just because of the food. Like these Maple Sweet Potato Pancakes. Made with sweet potato puree, maple syrup, and loaded up with cinnamon and nutmeg.
The smell of these pancakes alone are enough to satisfy.
This recipe is one that is easy to toss together, even in the morning before the coffee has kicked in and little mouths are demanding breakfast. To make it easier you can use canned sweet potato puree. Or if you make your own, just make the puree the day before and store it in the fridge so you’ll be ready to go. It’s super easy to make and I’ve included some steps in the notes with the recipe down below.
Even though these pancakes are sweetened with some maple syrup. I highly recommend giving them a ‘little’ drizzle with more just to ensure you really get the full effect.

You can use pre-made canned sweet potato puree or you can make your own. To make your own peel the sweet potato and boil until softened. Then place the softened sweet potato into a food processor or blender. Pulse until completely pureed. Add water if needed to get desired consistency.
