Notes

Makes 18 pancakes
Serving size based on 2 pancakes 
In the video we made muffins and then used the rest of the batter to try out sweet potato pancakes. We have the recipe for that one also. Yummy! 
We added milk to our batter in the video, but have decided water would cut the batter, just as well, so in the interest of calories we used water to replace milk. 
Also we have found that adding the baking soda and baking powder to the flour and whisking them together works best- so we have altered the instructions and advise using two mixing bowls; which in the original video we did not. 
Either way they have been made these were so tasty they have been added to our Fall Meal Prep Rotation.

Sweet Potato Pie
We prefer a southern sweet potato pie over a traditional pumpkin pie. Perhaps it is because the sweet potato pie does not have all the added spice. This pie is sweet, more dense, and less custardy than a pumpkin pie. You can make the potatoes ahead of time which is a great meal prep.

Cinnamon Roll Pancakes
Yes, you read that correctly! I know it is hard to believe that all that cinnamon-y goodness could be packed into a pancake and still taste like a cinnamon bun with icing, but low and behold I made them and they were amazing!
These take a little bit more effort than just a regular old homemade pancake, but they are so worth it. I think this is a perfect treat for Christmas morning or any special occasion breakfast.
In the past, we have made our own cinnamon rolls and that requires you make and proof dough, however with the pancake version your family will have all the flavors of the cinnamon rolls without all that time and effort.
