These gluten-free Chocolate Sweet Potato Oatmeal pancakes are a great naturally-sweetened breakfast made from whole foods!
These pancakes are not paleo since they contain oats, but they are gluten free and delicious, and made with natural, whole foods. I still eat grains and rice, and David and I are trying to get in more carbs, so these pancakes were a good source of healthy, complex carbs. And they were tasty without having to add a bunch of artificial sweeteners or refined sugars. These are sweetened naturally with honey.
I kept this photo because if you look, you can see Wallowitz’s little head in the background on the right 🙂
Top it off with natural, pure maple syrup if you would like a little extra sweetness! Although I ate mine on their own and they tasted great without too!

Combine the oats and almond milk in a large mixing bowl and stir. Let sit for about 5 minutes to let the oats soften a bit.
Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl, and mix well with a mixer until everything is thoroughly combined.
Heat butter or oil in a skillet over medium heat. Drop the batter by 1/4 cup into the skillet and cook for about 1 1/2 minutes on each side, flipping when the edges are dry and cooked, and you see air bubbles releasing through the tops.
Serve with desired topping (I like to use sliced bananas or pure maple syrup) or eat plain. Enjoy!
Hope you enjoy!
