Chocolate Sweet Potato & Almond Butter Pancakes

Hello beautiful beings, it has been a hot minute since we posted a blog - we have been busy, busy, busy!

But we are back at it with a passion and are ready to publish some more recipes, informative blogs and all the rest.

So here we are with a oh-so-delicious recipe from the wonderful Maria from The Healing Root :

Let’s talk pancakes for a moment.

In need of a deeply nourishing, comforting, nutritious & super flavourful stack of pancakes? I’ve got you!


1/3 cup of gluten-free flour

1/4 cup packed sweet potato mash (I used the orange sweet potato, which I peeled, boiled & mashed)

1/4 cup of mashed banana (which was one medium-large banana)

4 tablespoon cocoa powder (you can use cacao or cocoa, I used regular cocoa as it was what I had on hand)

1/2 cup + 2 tbsp soy milk

2 tbsp raw turbinado sugar or coconut sugar

3-4 tbsp chocolate, chopped (depending on how chocolate-y you want it!)

1 tbsp nut butter (I used almond butter - peanut butter is also great!)

1 scoop of Wazoogles Vanilla Sky protein powder (or the Chocolate Moondust protein powder)

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp pine pollen (can also substitute maca powder and/or cinnamon)

1/2 tsp Ashwaghandha

pinch salt


1. In a bowl, mash the banana. Add in the mashed sweet potato, the vanilla essence, the nut butter of choice, the salt, sugar and the chocolate chips. Mix well. Now add in the soy milk & mix again.

2. Add in the Wazoogles powder, the cocoa powder, the pine pollen & ashwaghanda (if you are using), the gluten-free flour mix and the baking powder. Mix well until a thick pancake batter emerges.

3. Using a non-stick frying pan, or some oil if you don’t have a non-stick, bring your pan to heat. Using a 1/8 cup measure for smaller pancakes or a 1/4 cup measure for bigger pancakes dollop the batter into the pan and flatten/round with the back of your spoon to form your circular pancake. Cook on a low-medium heat so that they cook all the way through. Flip & cook on the other side until golden brown & lucious.

4. Stack, drench in maple syrup/honey/agave, extra nut butter, top with Wazoogles chocolate snack pack, some other bits and bobs like roasted nuts or coconut flakes & some fresh fruit.
