Yam Hashbrown Pancakes

In case you didn’t know, yams or sweet potatoes are fantastic – very nutritious and delicious. Also, unlike regular potatoes, yams are ‘low glycemic’, meaning that, when we eat yams our blood sugar is raised slowly which is very desirable and very healthy.

This is a variation of a recipe from Diana at Radiance Nutritional Therapy

1 medium to large organic yam or sweet potato, peeled and shredded
3 organic eggs
1/2 onion, chopped small
Sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper, to taste
3-4 tablespoons (or more) coconut oil or organic butter

  • Combine all ingredients, except oil/butter
  • Place coconut oil or butter In large skillet or on a griddle over medium heat
  • Drop large spoonful of yam pancake mixture into the pan; cook 2-3 minutes on each side or until lightly browned; you may have to add more oil/butter as you cook
  • Can be frozen and reheated in a toaster oven
  • Serve with Green Smoothie
