Is there a more precious food out there than little, baby, silver dollar pancakes? They’re almost too cute to eat! *Almost.*
These sweet potato silver dollar pancakes are one of my all-time favorite breakfast and brunch foods because they’re packed with flavor while being made with minimal ingredients. All you need is mashed sweet potato, eggs, and a flour of your choice. That’s it! Then it’s up to you as to what you serve them with.
I like to serve these sweet potato silver dollar pancakes to my toddler with some ghee and a dusting of cinnamon, but you could opt for any toppings you like. Traditional pancake toppings like pure maple syrup and berries would be delicious, as would coconut yogurt, chopped nuts, sliced fruit, or they’re so delish plain on their own!
tip! Not only are sweet potatoes nutrient-dense and naturally sweet, making them perfect for a dish like pancakes, but they're extremely healthy for your gut! They contain fiber and antioxidants that promote the growth of good gut bacteria for a happy microbiome. (source)
Best of all, you can make a big batch of these Paleo sweet potato pancakes and enjoy them all week long, or use them to stock your freezer with a healthy grab-and-go breakfast! Perfect for busy weekdays and relaxing weekend mornings alike.
Got a picky kid? You can even hide another veggie in here like spinach to make them green or sub the sweet potato for butternut squash to switch it up and get more vegetables in your routine.
Store any cooled leftover paleo sweet potato pancakes in an airtight container or plastic bag at room temperature for up to 4 days. Freeze if planning to eat at a later date.
Reheat them the same way you cooked them on the stovetop!
I like to top my sweet potato silver dollar pancakes with ghee and cinnamon, but pure maple syrup, berries, and cacao nibs would also be delicious. I also love adding more protein to the meal with a side of bacon or sausage. Here are more easy and healthy breakfast recipes to pair them with:
Do sweet potato pancakes taste like regular pancakes?
Yes and no. They have a similar texture and flavor, especially if you use the same toppings as you would with regular pancakes, but sweet potato pancakes are denser and have an earthier, nuttier sweetness.
How can I make sweet potato pancakes AIP-friendly?
For this recipe, I haven’t found a great way yet (but if you do, please comment below!) What I’d recommend is using my AIP Waffle recipe as pancakes instead (or waffles) — they’re delicious and very popular!
Will kids like these Paleo sweet potato silver dollar pancakes?
Absolutely! To them, they’re just pancakes, but better because they’re so small and cute. Plus, they can technically eat more pancakes because they’re so much smaller than standard pancakes. Kids can help you make them, too! (With your help, of course.) I make these regularly with different variations for my toddler.

Do you have any recipes with sweet potato flour?
Not for this recipe, I mean in general 🙂
I wanted to try it out and was wondering how to use it, as well as how it performs, if one can bake bread out of it, and so on.
I don’t actually, I haven’t tried the sweet potato flour but hope you find some good recipes with it!
