  • 1 1/4 cups | 120 grams almond flour

  • 3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the flour mixture and mix together until fully combined.
  4. Heat a large skillet on the stove top and a little coconut oil to grease the pan. Once the pan is hot, use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to pour the batter on the skillet. Cook for about 2-3 minutes or until the top of the pancake starts to form bubbles and edges look set. Flip, and cook the other side until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Repeat with the remaining pancakes.

To make buttermilk: add 1 tablespoon lemon juice or apple cider vinegar to your dairy free milk. Stir gently to mix together and let sit for about 5 minutes to let the milk curdle.

To make mashed sweet potatoes: Peel and dice one medium/large sweet potato. Bring a pot of water to boil, add the potatoes and cook for 20 minutes until the sweet potatoes are tender and easily pierced with a fork. Drain the water and mash the potatoes with a potato masher or electric mixer until smooth. To freeze for later: allow the pancakes to cool completely before packing away in a ziplock bag and storing for up to 3 months.
