How to Prepare:

  1. Fill a small saucepan halfway with water and bring the water to a boil.
  2. While the water is boiling, peel the sweet potato and cut it into cubes.
  3. Add the sweet potato to the water and cook until the pieces are soft when pierced with a fork.
  4. Drain the water, and put the cooked sweet potato into a blender.  The sweet potato can be mashed with a fork if a blender is not available.  
  5. Add the 2 eggs, 1 scoop of protein powder, 1 tsp of sugar, and 1/2 banana and blend the ingredients.
  6. Grease the pan.
  7. Turn the stove on medium heat.
  8. Pour the batter into the frying pan.  When the batter has cooked enough it should be able to be flipped with a spatula.
  9. Cook the other side.
  10. Repeat for remaining pancakes.
  11. Optional Step – Spread 1/2 tsp of almond butter across the top of each pancake. This will help keep the blueberries from rolling off when building your pancake stack.
  12. Add several blueberries on top of each pancake then stack the next pancake on top creating a sandwich type effect.
  13. – Optional Step – Sprinkle cinnamon on top.
  14. Slice the remaining half of banana and use it to garnish the plate.
  15. Enjoy!
