Here's a great healthy breakfast recipe that you're sure to love!


  • 6 cup(s) sweet potatoes or yams, shredded
  • 1/4 cup(s) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 Tbs. honey
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1/2 cup(s) light brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1/3 cup(s) walnuts, chopped
  • 1 Tbs. orange juice
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 2 baking apples( MacIntosh or Cortland) , peeled, cored, and thinly sliced


1. In a large bowl, combine sweet potatoes, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, honey, egg, and egg whites and stir with a fork until mixed well.

2. Coat a large non-stick skillet with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Drop the batter by about 2 tablespoonfuls into hot pan to make several pancakes. Flatten slightly with a spatula until about 3 inches across. Cook the pancakes until golden on both sides. Transfer the pancakes to a warm large plate and keep warm. Repeat with the remaining batter, coating the skillet with cooking spray, as needed.

3. To make the topping:
In a large skillet, stir together brown sugar, walnuts, orange juice, and cinnamon. Add the apples and cook over medium-high heat, stirring, until the apples are tender and the brown sugar has melted to form a syrup. Serve with the pancakes.

Makes 4 servings.
