  • 1
    Peel and chop the sweet potato into chunks, add to a pot. Fill the pot with just enough water to cover the sweet potato and boil until very soft. Using a potato masher or mixer, mash the sweet potato until achieving a smooth consistency. Add ripe banana, egg, baking soda, flour and cinnamon. Mix well.
  • 2
    Heat coconut oil on a frying pan over medium heat. Add a large spoonful of the sweet potato batter to the pan. Let sit until bubbles begin to form and pancakes become firm. Cook each side for approximately 2-3 minutes, making sure not to let any side burn.

    Serve immediately with maple syrup, if desired.

Expert Tips

  • If you don't have coconut flour handy and are not on a strict diet, regular or wheat flour can be used instead.
