Sweet Potato and Pecan Flapjacks

Sweet Potato and Pecan Flapjacks

Sweet potato gives these pancakes a healthy dose of beta carotene, an antioxidant that also keeps eyes healthy. For convenience, roast a sweet potato the night before, or use canned mashed sweet potato. Drizzle with maple syrup and butter, and serve with a side of fresh fruit.
