Recipe: “Yay Mom!” Sweet Potato Banana Pancakes

Image0 2 2When preparing food for my family, I have certain goals I try to reach. To summarize, the food should be:
* Nutritious
* Delicious
* Easy
* Fast

These pancakes check all the boxes as well as a couple ‘bonus boxes’:
* Budget Friendly
* Gluten Free
* Dairy Free

Healthy foods are fabulous if they are eaten. A big pile of leafy greens is only going to be nutritionally valuable if it’s actually consumed. If not, we just wasted a bunch of money and the idea of feeding my girls that beautiful, healthy food remains an idea! Bummer.
I don’t consider myself a culinary person but am super happy to share this recipe with you! Every time I tell the girls this is what I’m making it goes something like this:
“Girls!  I’m making sweet potato…”
Give it a try, see if you like it.
