Sweet Potato Salted Caramel Protein Pancakes


Ingredients

Protein Pancakes
2 egg whites
¼ cup unsweetened almond milk
2 oz. cooked sweet potatoes, mashed
½ tsp. baking powder

Salted Caramel Cream Sauce
¼ cup plain greek yogurt

Method

1.  Place all protein pancake ingredients in a blender (I used a magic bullet) and mix. Stop and scrap the sides of the blender if necessary and mix again until all of batter is smooth.

2.  In a small bowl, whisk together greek yogurt and Torani syrup. Set aside.

3.  Heat a non-stick skillet on the stove-top over medium heat. Pour about ¼ cup pancake batter onto skilling and cook about 2-4 minutes on each side. For me, this made 8 small pancakes total. To serve, drizzle the salted caramel cream sauce on top of pancakes. Top with almond butter and pecans, if desired.

Makes 2 servings // 1 serving is 4 small pancakes with ½ of the cream sauce

  1. Hi, I see you're affiliate with Quest.I love Quest!
    Ok, because I'm assuming we have similar tastes, i was hoping you could recommend a GREAT tasting protein powder. I would prefer something I could drink and bake with. Something with no funky aftertaste. Any suggestions?

  2. I love Quest also :) I definitely have some recommendations for you. I have been using Giant Sports Delicious Protein Powder from the beginning. I almost never stray from their products. They have 5 flavors and all are outstanding. Both to drink and to bake with! You can order it from the Vitacost link on the right side of my blog that will save you $10 if you sign up as a new Vitacost member. I also recently discovered ARO vanilla casein which is Vitacost's brand. I bake with that also. It is a bit thicker than Giant Sports protein powder but it bakes nicely. Hope this help!! Feel free to email me at proteintreatsbynicolette@gmail.com if you have any other questions!
