    1. I’m cool with people using white potatoes for these as I think white potatoes are probably pretty harmless in moderation (vs a standard American fries-with-everything approach).

      Under eggs is great! That’s how I had them too!

      1. did i miss something , didnt you say you dont eat sweet potato some where else or were you just making this for a recipe,is sweet potato harmless in moderation ,cause thats what ive turned to over regular white potato

        1. I don’t personally eat them often. I was eating them more when I first went paleo but I find that I need a lot fewer carbs in the day to feel good, less hungry and to keep cravings for sweets away. These pancakes were awesome, but I CHOWED too many of them… it’s SO easy to go back for more of them since they’re sweet, you know? ;o)

  1. I just happen to have two massive sweet potatoes in my fridge and I was hemming and hawing over making them as I have the last few months – mashed w/ lots of spice and butter. Now, of course, as I write that, I want it again, but I want to try this as well! I’ve done latkes with many things, but never sweet potatoes. This sounds heavenly! I wonder what a good topping could be? Our traditional reibekuchen are served with sour cream or applesauce. I’ll have to ponder on that for a bit. Maybe spiced whipped coconut milk? Does CM whip? Thanks for this idea! Can’t wait to try!

  2. Do you think we can bake these instead of frying? I’m not much of a fryer even though I do have coconut oil. I just think it’s still too greasy. What do you think?

    1. Just found your website today and tried the Sweet Potato Pancakes. They were FANTASTIC!!! We drizzled a little local honey over the top and then paired with over-medium eggs – yum.

      This is definitely a new family favorite for breakfast.

      Question – has anyone tried freezing the left-overs? I would love to make a large batch and freeze them for future “quick” breakfast treats.

      1. I have frozen them and then taken them camping / reheated over a camp stove & added the over med egg and some sausage. Totally a camp favorite of ours!

  3. You said you recommend coconut flour to replace regular flour. Do you ever use almond flour? I might try these with almond flour since I just bought it the other day, and I’m not sure I’ve ever seen coconut flour in the stores near me.

  4. I’ve been wanting some sweet potato pancakes, but savory, not sweet. I couldn’t really find any paleo savory ones, so I used your recipe and subbed out all your spices for 2 Tbsp homemade taco seasoning (1/2 T chili powder, 3/8 T cumin, 3/8 T paprika, 1/4 T onion powder, 1/4 T garlic powder, 1/2 t oregano, 1/8 t red pepper flakes, 1/8 t sea or pink salt). I used ghee to cook them in and they were incredible and just what I was wanting. Absolutely delicious.

  5. Is there an egg-less way to make these? They are listed on the Autoimmune meal plan in Practical Paleo (which is all egg-less recipes) and I couldn’t find a substitution in the book. I’m desperate for grain-free, egg-free, nut-free, dairy-free recipes for my toddler and if there is a way to make these without eggs they would be great! Looking through the Autoimmune meal plans, this was the only recipe that caught my eye as something she might enjoy. Thank you.

      1. Noticed the same problem with the sweet potato recipe! Some of recipes in the autoimmune conditions meal plan contain things to be avoided. I wasn’t sure if its still permissible since its a relatively small amount…assuming you don’t eat an entire batch of sweet potato pancakes in one sitting. Likewise the advice on p 132 to avoid high quantities of insoluble fibers like leafy greens but then salads and spinach included in the meal plan. I just got out from under a rock and noticed you already wrote a second edition! Excited to buy it.

          Hi Jenny- the notes about things to avoid like leafy greens are meant to be “in excess.” Spinach isn’t a problem, but copious amounts of raw veggies in general can be problematic. The meal plan includes a really great mix of cooked and raw foods to avoid this issue. The notes in the add/avoid about food are really more for folks who aren’t following the 30 days but are going their own route! But I think the sweet potato pancake recipe has a note to make it as a hash perhaps you have a super early printing of the 1st edition where I missed adding that note? The 2nd edition is a vast improvement, so pass that to a friend and grab it, I promise you’ll be glad you did!

  15. I am reading through this recipe and wondering if the sweet potatoes are cooked when you shred them or do they cook in the oil?
