Mini Sweet Potato & Banana Pankcakes


If I could have pancakes every morning, I would. But really, who has the time to make them every single morning? Not this mama - and with a little one to prepare breakfast for as well - I need quick and easy options. This easy homemade pancake recipe is one that you can make ahead of time, freeze and just warm up in the oven.


This particular morning, I wanted to make pancakes for Uriah because I love how great of a finger food they are, and he definitely loves them. I had a sweet potato on hand, so I decided to use that and add some other yummy additions such as banana (his favorite) and honey. 


I really loved how my recipe turned out. These are soft and creamy in the center because of all of that yummy sweet potato and crispy on the edges. They aren't too sweet, either. 


I drizzled maple syrup over them for photography purposes, but just served them to him plain. Before you put these into the freezer, you could also drizzle them with a little maple syrup or honey so that once you warm them up, they're already set without any need to add syrup. 


I also added a touch of poppy seeds because I think they're just fun and a nice subtle taste.


My oldest son also enjoyed eating these, so this recipe is not just for the little ones. Now let's get into this yummy recipe!
