Morning friends!

It’s officially begun. The part where summer flies by in the blink of an eye after the fourth. The 13th already?!

I’ve been trying to enjoy these warm and sunny weekends as much as I can since I know as soon as I’m done this cup of coffee it will already be November.

This weekend started bright and early (5 AM) to help out with the Old Port Half Marathon.

Me and about seven other gals rocked out and played water cup jenga all before 7 AM. The neighbors must have loved us.

It was great to see all those runners killin’ it in the 80 degree heat, but I am so glad I wasn’t one of them. I did however get the itch to sign up for my next race sometime in the near future!

The rest of the day was spent with my man-friend who came up to visit for the weekend. We did a whole lotta exploring, which included a random man playing the drums in a field….for hours, a hidden speakeasy, and the most gorgeous and absolutely amazing meals. But you’ll have to wait until Wednesday to hear all about that 🙂

I did however find some words I can live by.

After a quick brunch with my friendly man before he hit the road, I spent the rest of the day studying for law school.

Until I convinced myself that running in the 90 degree sun was a good idea.

 

 

It’s not. I somehow managed to do 3 miles, until I thought my face was going to melt straight off my head. Us runners, we crazy.

I found it only appropriate to reward myself with a cool post-run treat.

And then it was time for breakfast!

And since I teased you about them last week on Instagram, I couldn’t let my pancake reputation become tainted.

I first fell in love with sweet potato pancakes when the Southern roomie and I took a road trip to Nashville, and waited an hour to experience the Pancake Pantry.

And since I never want to take the time and effort to make pancakes with more than a handful of ingredients, I found a way to get my fix with only two.

Two I tell ya! I suggest jazzing them up with some cinnamon, because it makes them all the more delicious, but who am I to tell you how to eat pancakes.

Having this little smoothie blender sure came in handy. If you have one, or one of the single-cup options with your blender I suggest using that. It made it getting these pancakes into my pie hole that much faster.

And a little butter never hurt a pancake. Peanut or regular. 😉

  2. I made this, but instead I made them savory by using some paprika, a little chili powder, fresh minced/diced jalepenos, and green onions! I liked the flavors, but I mashed instead of blended. It would have been fine if I had freshly cooked the sweet potato then mashed/whipped but I was using half of a cold left over.

    • I haven’t tried it with flax eggs before, but I don’t think they would hold up their shape without eggs. I’ll give it a go and see if it works, or let me know if you give it a try!

  4. I love the look of these, I want to make them, but I need a blender or food processor, any brand recommendations? I love the looks of your bright green one! I just stumbled on to your site, I love it! I am gluten, and dairy free, so shopping recipes! Especially for tortillas or wraps!

  6. Hi Emily,
    I am doing the same receipe, but just egg whites, for my meal preparation of the week.
    I was wondering how long do you think those pankakes would last in the fridge?

  7. The eggs didn’t seem to cook along with the potatoes, so there was a raw egg taste. Maybe i’m doing it wrong? Potatoes ‘pancake’ eventually, but not before some heavy crisping.

  8. These look yummy and I will be trying them tomorrow! How would I adjust the recipe to make them into waffles? I like pancakes, but I adore waffles. Any ideas? Thank you 🙂

    • Hmm.. I’ve never tried making them into waffles before, but I love the idea! I’m thinking it might work if you just pour the batter into a greased waffle iron? Not 100% sure if it would work though. Definitely let me know if you give it a try!

  9. Im so happy I came across this! I’ve had banana pancakes many times but never sweet potato! I think I’ll try this we recipe this week but in muffin form. I’ll let u know how it turns out 🙂 thanks for posting this
