Sweet Potato and Apple Pancakes

Sweet Potato and Apple Pancakes

I like variety for breakfast, so I have quite a few recipes that I rotate between! Depending on how I feel, determines what I have for breakfast. Perhaps why I like CrossFit…constantly varied breakfasts! Sweet Potatoes are rich in Vitamin B1, 3, 6 & 9, Iron, Calcium, Potasium and Magnesium, lower in starch than regular potatoes and are low Glycemic. Combine these pancakes for breakfast with some avocado and a fried eggs, voila!….a balanced, nutritious breakfast or eat them cold as a pre-workout snack!
