Sweet Potato Blender Pancakes

Pancakes are the ultimate kid-pleaser, whether it's for breakfast or a lunchtime snack. Packed with healthy nutrients and a naturally sweet flavor, no kid will pass up on this fun meal. 

Makes approximately 2-cups of batter


1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (use gluten-free if needed)

1 cup Else prepared  with 1 cup water + 4 scoops Else

1 tbsp ground flax seed

½ cup steamed and mashed peeled sweet potato (about ½ large sweet potato)

½ tsp pure vanilla extract

½ tsp ground cinnamon

½ tsp baking powder

2 pitted medjool dates

Cooking spray, for greasing the pan


  1. Place oats in a blender and process until they reach a powder-like consistency. 
  2. Add prepared Else, flax seed, sweet potato, vanilla, cinnamon, baking powder, and dates to the blender and blend until smooth.
  3. Coat a skillet or griddle with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Lower heat to medium and ladle 2 tablespoons of batter for each pancake onto the pan. Cook each pancake 4-5 minutes, then flip and cook for another 4-5 minutes. Check a pancake for doneness and repeat with remaining batter. 
  4. Serve topped with nut butter, fruit, or your child’s favorite topping.

Note: Cooking these pancakes slowly over lower heat is preferred to prevent burning the pancakes.
