These are NOT "healthy" "guilt free" "clean" "sinless" pancakes. Why not? A couple of reasons: 1. Calling something "guilt free" is kind of ridiculous. Food and ingredients do not contain guilt. What makes you feel guilty is the mindset surrounding said food and ingredients. Guilt cannot come from food - it comes from your mind. And I'm a firm believer that you should never feel "guilty" or berate yourself for eating the damn cookie every once and awhile.
2. Food either does or does not support whatever your goals are. There is no room for making yourself feel bad because you ate some ice cream, or vice versa, feeling all mighty because you ate a salad.
3. These pancakes have sugar and milk and deliciousness. YES, sugar. I promise, it will be okay.
Truthfully, I had a massive pancake craving that could not be shaken and I haven't made pancakes in quite awhile so, voila - pancakes. Super easy to make pancakes (especially if you already have pureed sweet potato on hand). Delicious pancakes. Probably some of the best pancakes I've ever made.
You could also replace the sweet potato with pumpkin or banana probably - two very delicious options. I highly recommend making a big batch and eating them throughout the week....or just eating all of them, because you know, Mondays.
A big stack of these after pressing/deadlift medleys and all is right with the world.
