This sweet potato banana pancake & strawberry glaze recipe was inspired by my need for quick recipes. For the past two weeks I’ve been busy, but to continue eating wholesome food I’ve been cooking quick breakfast recipes. Breakfast is quick to whip up and tastes even better for dinner. Since there is a growing popularity in gluten free recipes, I decided to put my own twist on the popular banana pancake recipe. My version features half of a leftover baked sweet potato and a homemade strawberry glaze sweetened with maple syrup. If you bake sweet potatoes this week, remember to save half of one for these deliciously light & nutritious sweet potato banana pancakes. Local produce is abundant at the Farmer’s Market this season & the local organic strawberries from Go Local Produce were the perfect topping for my pancakes. The strawberry glaze is so easy to make, but tastes like a fancy glaze at a five star restaurant. It’s so good that you will be putting this strawberry glaze on everything! If you manage to have left overs try it on plain yogurt, coconut ice-cream, & even cakes as a naturally sweet sauce. —rosy alexander
