Ingredients

  • 2 medium US sweet potatoes
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 360 ml milk
  • 2 eggs (beaten)
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 150 g Greek yoghurt
  • 110 g wholegrain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup walnuts (roughly chopped)
  • 2 tbsp date syrup

Instructions

1
Pre-heat the oven to 175°C.
2
Use a fork to prick the sweet potatoes. Place into the pre-heated oven for 20 to 30 minutes, or until soft. 
3
Once soft, remove from the oven and set aside until cool enough to touch. Peel off the skin and discard, then place the sweet potatoes into a blender and purée. Set the purée aside to cool. 
4
Mix the sweet potato purée with the oil, then add 120ml of the milk, the eggs, vanilla extract and yoghurt, and mix until smooth. Pour into a large bowl and then add the remaining milk, stirring to mix.
5
In a second large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, the salt and cinnamon. Add the liquid and mix, then add the chopped walnuts and stir through.
6
Place an oiled frying pan over a medium to high heat until hot. For each pancake, place 2 to 3 tablespoons of batter into the pan. Fry for 3 minutes on each side until lightly browned, then remove from the pan and serve with a drizzle of date syrup.
