This week we’ll try something new because we like to think outside the box.
Today’s breakfast topic is sweet potatoes -- famous for pies, muffins, and bread, so why not pancakes?

Uh-huh, sweet potatoes. They are rich in anti-oxidants, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, iron, dietary fiber, vitamin B6, potassium and a very good source of vitamin C and niacin. So why not try these?
Sweet Potato Pancakes
In a large bowl, mix the water, sweet potato puree, and cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice, if using. Add the pancake mix and stir just to combine—the batter should be lumpy.
Coat a griddle or large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set it over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add the oil, and spoon the batter onto the griddle or pan, using 1/4 cup batter for each pancake.
Cook until bubbles form on top of the pancakes and the batter is set, 2 to 3 minutes. Then use a spatula to flip the pancakes and cook them until golden brown on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. From the book Deceptively Delicious
