The truth about sugar cravings and how to fight them.
I had this for breakfast this morning(along with fruit). I love these pancakes; they’re the perfect combination of complex carbs, protein and fats to refuel after an amazing workout and topped with all natural almond butter these will make your taste buds sing.
You will need:
1 small sweet potato,
2 organic free range eggs or 4 egg whites
1 tablespoon of coconut flour (you can sub this with any flour of your choice or even protein powder)
Ground cinnamon and ground vanilla to taste
A little bit of water
Optional: stevia for extra sweetness
Prepare the sweet potato as you usually would (I like to steam or bake mine), then mash it up with a fork, add the remaining ingredients, mix well and cook in a non-stick pan with a little coconut oil on medium heat. Top with your topping of choice (highly recommend all natural almond butter) and enjoy. Have a lovely and healthy day guys.
