Recipe for Sweet Potato Protein Pancakes

High Protein Sweet Potato Pancakes Recipe!

In a moment of desperation to lose weight, and an on again-off again obsession with the fitness world, I paid good money for a weight loss meal plan. Although I didn’t lose much weight, I did get some great recipes! It was more than 10 years ago, and I can not find that meal plan or recipes anywhere. But, I remember it had protein sweet potato pancakes, and I remember loving them. I have scoured my files, my hard drive, and even the internet, and have not been able to find that recipe anywhere. So, I’ve been testing other sweet potato pancake recipes, and although I still haven’t found the original, I’ve created my own final two recipes that I think are the closest.

These two final recipes are both pretty tasty, and not that different in texture. But the flatter ones have equal protein to carbs because I used protein powder. The fluffier ones have more carbs because I used oats.
They are both worth trying, depending on your day, so I included them both!
