Yam it up.





Yam Pancakes
  • I took one leftover yam from dinner (you can leave these in the flesh, and put them in the fridge.  They are great as leftovers or to use in recipes)
  • I used
    • 1/2 cup of the cooked yam scooped out from it’s skin.
    • 1 cup low fat milk
    • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
    • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
    • 1 egg
  • I blended all ingredients in a blender (Magic Bullet Actually), until it was smooth and runny.
  • Then I put in a bowl:
    • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
    • 2 tsp. baking powder
    • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • Then added the liquid ingredients to the dry.  You can add more milk if you need to for the consistency of pancake batter. I like mine thin, so it pours easily and cooks thoroughly.
  • Then pour batter onto a hot griddle.  Flip pancake when it begins to bubble.
  • Then EAT! MMMM
