Our Little Sweetie Potatoes

Zeal is a big fan of pancakes, and especially waffles. Still, increasingly, I've been trying to cut back on wheat (and other glutens too) from his diet. This morning we made these sweet potato pancakes. It was an experiment in texture, and was a wonderful tactile, play dough type of "recipe", although we didn't use any particular recipe. Here's the ingredients in case you also want to try: sweet potato puree, potato starch, the equivalent of two eggs in Egg replacer powder, water (although I imagine milk would have added a nice creaminess) cinnamon, nutmeg, paprika, dash of salt.

We fried them in a tiny bit of vegetable oil.

And served with maple syrup.

This is the syrup we use, bought in bulk from Honey Heaven in Eugene.

Kinda like pumpkin pie covered in maple syrup for breakfast. They don't look particularly appetizing, but they were super yummy. And look mom, no wheat.
