Hippie Moms Aren't Crazy

Sweet Potato Pancakes (with Einkorn Flour)

I know I need to hire a professional food photographer… it’s just not in me. I had already taken a bite and remembered I needed a photo! Whatever, they are delicious no matter how good… or bad the photo is šŸ˜‰

These are AMAZING sweet potato pancakes! I finally found a recipe I could post on my blog.

I tend to always top off anything laced with honey or maple syrup with high fibre and Omega-3 filled little nuggets, such as chia and hemp seeds… oh and walnuts!

It’s just my thang.

I found a recipe and made it my own (it’s how it works around here)… I subbed white bleached flour for my new love, Einkorn flour. ThisĀ ancient and antioxidant-filled wheat I coupled with the sweet and savory flavor of sweet potatoes… Ā šŸ™‚

Einkorn contains higher levels of protein, essential fatty acids, phosphorous, potassium, pyridoxine (B6), lutein and beta-carotene (lutein). The Einkorn flour is characterized by high protein, high ash, a very high carotene content, and small flourĀ particle size when compared to the modern bread wheats. (Source)

Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene). They are also a very good source of vitamin C, manganese, copper, pantothenic acid and vitamin B6. Additionally, they are a good source of potassium, dietary fiber, niacin, vitamin B1, vitamin B2 and phosphorus. (Source)


A nutritious and delectable breakfast… or dinner šŸ˜‰ Come on, who doesn’t like breakfast for dinner. It’s so FUN!

Add in blueberries or if your kids have been good, dark chocolate chips! Awwww chocolate.

Sweet Potato Pancakes (with Einkorn Flour)


  • 1 1/2 cupĀ einkorn flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder (aluminum free)
  • 1Ā teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon saltĀ 
  • 2Ā large eggs
  • 2Ā cupsĀ nut milk (make your own here!)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoonĀ maple syrup or raw unfilterred honey
  • 1 1/2 Ā tablespoonĀ coconut oil / grass fed butter
  • 1 1/2 cup sweet potato puree


  1. Peel and cut about three small sweet potatoes into 1/4 inch squares. steam or boil until soft. Blend or place in food processor to create puree. (Have extra? MakeĀ these sweet potato Einkorn brownies)
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the einkorn flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients.
  4. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Over stirring will create dry pancakes so mix just enough to combine ingredients.
  5. Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat and lightly coat with butter or coconut oil.
  6. Pour about 1/8 cupĀ of the pancake mixture onto the pan, making as many pancakes as will fit (drop in blueberries or chocolate chips) and cook for 2 minutes, or until bubbles begin to form.
  7. Flip the pancakes and cook for one minute longer.
  8. Boom, heaven.
