3/4 cup cooled, mashed sweet potato
2 Tbsp. canola oil
3/4 cup almond milk (or any other non dairy milk)
1/2 cup water
2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp each ground cinnamon and ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
pinch of ground cloves
1. Prep your potato. Heat your over to 350 and put the washed potato on the middle rack. Put a shallow pan on the bottom of your stove to catch any drips (we didn't have any). The potato is done when you can easily insert a knife into the center. Our potato was fat and took just about an hour.
2. Whisk together sweet potato, oil, almond milk, water, vinegar, sugar and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Add the flour, baking powder, salt, and spices. Mix until there are very few lumps, but be careful not to over mix.
3. Preheat a large heavy bottom skillet (we used our griddle) over medium heat for at least 3 minutes. You will know it is hot enough when a drop of water dances around the pan. Spritz with a light coat of cooking spray. Pour 1/2 cup of pancake mix and cook until the top looks somewhat dry (about 3 minutes). Flip and cook for another minute. Top with pure maple syrup.
