Sweet Potato Pancake Recipe

Sweet Potato Pancakes


  • 6 cups peeled and finely shredded sweet potatoes
  • 1 cup finely shredded onions
  • 1 tsp. no-salt herb blend
  • 1 2/3 cup unbleached flour
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 cups finely shredded zucchini
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 1½ cups egg substitute
  • 6 tsp. canola oil, divided


Combine the sweet potatoes, zucchini, onions, lemon juice, herb blend, egg, flour, and parsley in a large mixing bowl.

In a large no-stick frying pan or griddle over medium-high heat, warm 2 tsp. of the oil. 

Drop a large tablespoon of the batter into the pan and spread it with a spatula to form a thin pancake.

Add more batter to fill the pan without crowding the pancakes.

Cook for about 2 minutes per side, or until golden and crispy.

Remove from the pan and keep warm.

Repeat, adding the remaining 4 tsp. oil as needed, until all the batter has been used.
