Sweet Potato Rye Pancakes With Blueberry Honey Sauce

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by PaulaG

Dark, moist, slightly spicy pancakes. No one would ever guess the ingredients list. I served these with fresh blueberry/honey sauce. Probably would be wonderful served with glazed, cooked apples.

Had these uniquely enjoyable pancakes the other day, & right off, I have to say, this recipe is definitely a keeper! The multiple flavors are really nice! One change I did make was to mash up a generous half cup of blueberries & added that to the prepared blueberry & honey sauce! Thanks so much for sharing this unusual recipe!
