Sweet and Simple

Since going grain free, there are so many things I miss (muffins, cake, gravy, biscuits).  On a recent trip to Toronto, I was lucky enough to eat the best Belgian fries with maple syrup.  Since then, I was missing all the great vehicles to get maple syrup into my mouth.

I felt quite brilliant when I thought of simply using sweet potatoes and make them pancakes!

I've cooked them two ways, in a pan on the stove top and on a cookie sheet in the oven.  I'm happy to say they both worked beautifully and both taste heavenly.

Peel some sweet potatoes and slice into rounds.  You can either cook until brown on both sides in a skillet or frying pan with some Earth Balance margarine or lie them on a parchment lined baking sheet and brush with melted Earth Balance margarine and bake at 450 for about 15 minutes or until golden brown and delicious.

Serve with real Canadian maple syrup.  I also imagine nuts or nut butters would be a nice addition!
