Produce pancakes

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:
