Calories: 240kcal


  • 1 ½ cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon flaxmeal
  • 1 medium sweet potato cooked in the microwave or roasted in an oven until cooked through. To microwave, pierce with a knife in several places, wrap in a paper towel and microwave first for five minutes and then for three, or until a knife pierced in the center goes cleanly through.
  • ½ cup applesauce
  • 1 ½ cups non-dairy milk
  • ½ cup orange juice


  • Mix together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and flaxmeal in a large bowl.
  • Blend the sweet potato, orange juice, applesauce and non-dairy milk in a food processor or blender until you have a smooth mixture.
  • Add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients, whisking or mixing with a spatula until everything is just combined. Do not overmix.
  • Heat a griddle and spray on some oil. Pour about ¼ cup of batter in the center and cook until the sides start to dry and bubbles appear on top. Work on medium heat and keep a close eye because the sugar in the sweet potatoes and orange juice can cause the pancakes to brown quickly.
  • Flip the pancake and continue to cook until the other side is golden-brown.
  • Serve hot with any syrup of your choice.
