Sweet Potato Almond Pancakes with Banana and Honey

In a mixing bowl, whisk the dry ingredients together. Whisk the wet ingredients in another bowl and add the wet to dry and stir just to combine. Depending on the thickness of the batter, you can thin it down with a little more milk. Set the batter aside and allow it to rest for 5 minutes. 

Heat a non-stick griddle over medium heat. Spoon batter (2 Tbsp) and top with sliced almonds and cook until bubbles form, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook until other side is golden, about 2 minutes. Serve immediately with sliced bananas and honey. 

Tip – They freeze beautifully, so double the recipe and freeze them for mornings when you’re pressed for time.
