What’s a celebration in the south without pecans and sweet potatoes?! This is just one of the recipes that I will be sharing to pay homage to these my new-ish southern roots. Typically, southern food means poundcake, fried chicken, cheese grits, and all things fried. These crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside vegan, refined sugar and gluten free pancakes are eaten in our home for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner…AND anything but fried, oiled and full of sugar. Anytime is a good time for sweet potato pancakes. My kiddos love them too. And my daughter eats them without the pecans. When I was a young mother fed my first born loved sweet potatoes as one of her first solid foods and I simply wanted her to eat and enjoy them as she did. So, I made sure she had her beloved sweet potatoes at least once per day. To the point where she actually did begin to turn orange. Oh my!! It was so cute…my little sweet tater. But I did ease up and gave them to her less frequently. I’m happy to say she has a wonderful tone (not orange) to her beautiful skin.
