Fool Your Family Friday!

Welcome to Fool Your Family Friday!
This is a weekend favorite in our house.

The sweet potato helps stabilize kids' blood sugar levels by providing soluble fiber. Sweet potatoes are also good for skin, eyes and all-over good health because they're rich in beta carotene and other antioxidants. I make the batter on Saturday night so we're ready to go on Sunday morning. PANCAKES

1 cup water
1/2 cup sweet potato puree
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice (optional)
1 cup pancake mix
Nonstick cooking spray
1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil
pure maple syrup, for serving

1. In a large bowl, mix the water, sweet potato puree, and cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice, if using. Add the pancake mix and stir just to combine - the batter should be lumpy.

2. Coat a griddle or large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set it over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add the oil, and spoon the batter onto the griddle or pan, using 1/4 cup batter for each pancake.

3. Cook until bubbles form on top of the pancakes and the batter is set, 2 to 3 minutes. Then use a spatula to flip the pancakes and cook them until golden brown on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes.

Yum Yum Yum

I'll be back tomorrow with a color challenge from Lauren.
See you then!
