Sweet Potato Apple-Cinnamon Pancakes

What to do with leftover Sweet Potato from your Healthy Eating & Weight Loss Coach


I don’t know about you but I always look for recipes that help keep me healthy on the weekends.  I get my meal prep done on Thursdays for the week and freeze a lot of food.  The weekend though (when I feel lazy) and I look for something quick and easy can be where my commitment drops off.  So, I use this recipe for my Friday night Sweet potato and then I have it fresh on Saturday morning and ready for Sunday morning.

I cook for myself so I often have to deal with grocery store packaging and how to deal with leftovers.  Until they start packaging food for one person that is gluten-free and paleo friendly I will use recipes like this!

Let me know what you think!
