  • 250 g puréed sweet potato
  • 120 g plain/spelt flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 large egg
  • 250 ml milk I used oat milk
  • 50 g shredded spinach
  • 2 tbsp ricotta


  1. Beat all the ingredients together well or place in a blender to make it really smooth.
  2. Heat some oil in a frying pan over a low heat. Pour a little batter into the hot oil and cook over a low heat for 2-3 minutes on each side to ensure that the pancakes are cooked through.
  3. Keep warm in the oven or serve straight away.
  4. These freeze well. Allow to cool completely and then place a small piece of baking paper between each one to stop them sticking together in the freezer.
