Sweet Potato and Pecan Pancakes | Delish D'Lites

Did you know that Sweetpotato is one word? A sweetpotato is not simply a “sweet potato.” It’s actually an entirely different vegetable from a potato and has a totally different set of nutrients – it has more than a day’s worth of vitamin A.  Sweetpotatoes  work in everyday cooking because they are so versatile in the kitchen. You can prepare baked, mashed, steamed, pureed, roasted, and even grilled sweetpotatoes and they can be enjoyed in both savory and sweet recipes.

Sweetpotatoes have bold flavor on their own and also pair beautifully with just about any flavor combination.  These sweet potato and pecan pancakes capture the delicate sweetness and fluffy texture of a sweetpotato! It’s the perfect combination of sweet and spice, and everything nice.  Even my hubby, who’s not a fan of sweetpotatoes, loved this recipe for sweet potato and pecan pancakes.  If that’s not a solid endorsement, I don’t know what is. 🙂
