Sweet Potato Apple Cider Oatmeal Pancakes + Q&A

Sunday Sunday, so good to me… (to the tune of Mamas + Papas “Monday, Monday”)

FYI: I <3 Sundays.

Maybe it’s because I have time to whip up the best breakfasts ever, like this one…

But before we get into that deliciousness, let’s do a quick recap of Saturday. Trust it will be quick – there are no food pics involved!  I only took pictures of these things…

In other words, my aunt, uncle and cousins were in town for a wedding.  Since these two darling young kiddos did not go, my other cousin and I happily brought them to the children’s museum.  I may or may not have had just as much fun as they did.

I also had my first workout since the marathon: a 75-minute Hatha Yoga class. Needless to say, I am a bit sore today, but it felt SO GOOD to stretch out my body and get a little winded.

Enough of Saturday.  It’s Sunday, which means the invention of Sweet Potato Apple Cider Oatmeal Pancakes!

Adapted from one of my all-time favorite bloggy recipes: Oaty Cakes by Ms. Polly, the inspiration came from this…

Just one of the bazillion gajillion reasons I love Target.

Then I realized I had just a bit of sweet potato puree left.  Between these two items, this beauty was conceived:

Sweet Potato Apple Cider Oatmeal Pancakes

1 cup oats
1 (6-oz.) container Archer Farms Apple Cider yogurt
1/3 cup sweet potato puree
1 egg
1 tbsp. canola oil
1/4 cup whole wheat flour (I only had white flour on-hand)
lots of cinnamon (I never measure cinnamon – I just douse everything with it)
1 tsp. baking soda
2 small (or 1 large) apple, diced
1/4 cup apple cider or apple juice
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 tbsp. agave

Mix the first three ingredients together until well-blended.  Then add the egg, oil, flour, cinnamon and baking soda.

Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat.  Scoop 1/4 cup of the batter for each pancake.  Cook each side for 3 to 5 minutes, or until golden brown.  In the words of Polly, “Scoop onto HOT griddle, flip, smoosh, brown.”

While the pancakes are cooking, put the diced apple, sugar, agave and a couple more dashes of cinnamon in a bowl.  Heat for 1 minute.  Stir.  Then heat an additional minute.

To serve, put the pancakes on a plate, top with Mighty Maple PB, scoop some apple mixture love over the top and devour the deliciousness of Fall!

Makes 6 pancakes (2 servings)

Sunday Sunday, it was all I hoped it would be…

Looooove the video! You look fab! Love the shades and the parking ticket and your voice.

I wanted to do a vlog before I left this weekend, but the upgrade is like $60 smackaroos! I wonder if I can avoid that since I did buy my own domain? Need to look into that! Not sure that whole schpeel belonged in your comment section, my apologies!

Thanks for answering my question! I don’t like mushrooms either, yuck. I also don’t have a fondness for cantelope, but I love olives!
