Sweet Potato Pancakes

Ah, the sweet potato. While a favorite of the bodybuilder, the sweet potato can be enjoyed by anyone. They offer a great carb source after your workout and can be a staple for those looking to build muscle. Plus they’re very versatile-  you can bake them, mash them, and even turn them into some oven baked fries. In this case, you can scope out sweet potato pancakes as a post-workout treat. Just make sure to use some berries or a low sugar fruit spread to enjoy them (they do taste good plain). Avoid things like maple syrup and agave nectar – those will just mess with your blood sugar and negate all the hard work you put in on the training floor.

Give yourself about 30 minutes to make these bad boys. Enjoy!
