One of the great things about being a teacher is the relationship you develop with students.
Sometimes I have some pretty personal in-depth conversations.
Other times things are light hearted and fun. People have questions for me or give me some tips.
Recently after one of my yoga classes my students and I were talking about losing weight and maintaining weight with healthy eating and exercise, including a regular yoga practice.
We talked about our go-to snacks and other things we love to eat.
We started talking about what I am calling produce pancakes.
Simple, healthy, delicious and filling.
The first recipe I tried were for the Sweet Potato Pancakes:
- 1 large sweet potato
- 2 eggs
I microwaved the sweet potato until it was soft enough to scoop out. Sweet potato “guts” went into a bowl with 2 eggs. Whipped everything together.
Depending on if you want sweet or savory you can add seasoning to fit your tastes. (Savory: garlic, salt, pepper, onion powder, etc. Sweet: cinnamon, pumpkin pie spices, etc.)
Sprayed some cooking spray into a skillet. Poured the “batter” in skillet.
The recipe made four pancakes.
The next day I tried the Banana Pancakes:
