Sweet Potato Pancakes with Oatmeal

Sweet Potato Oatmeal Pancakes

I have been craving these since the first time I made them. The original recipe came from Allrecipes.com for Louisiana Sweet Potato Pancakes. Now I have to tell you, I was raised in Louisiana, and I did not have the opportunity to try such a fabulous item. But I'm so glad I've found them now!

I loved how fluffy they were. And I loved that you didn't have to add extra sugar. A teaspoon of vanilla (see comments) accented the sweetness of the potato, and they were just perfect. Do they not look just perfect? The recipe made 18 pancakes. And between the three of us, there were only about 6 left at the end of the meal. Let me tell you, I had no idea my grocery bill would go up so much when Nora turned one. She's a big eater! But then, so are Paul and I. It's only right, I guess. Just hope she has our metabolisms, too.

Anyway, read the comments on the recipe. I do believe the oats made a huge impact on the fluffiness, flavor, and definitely on the nutritional value. I'd like to experiment with adding more oats in the future. Maybe I'll be brave. Or maybe I'll just be happy with these wonderful breakfast pancakes.

PS: I left out the nutmeg because I didn't have any.
