I came up with this recipe after attempting to make some sweet potato pancakes from cooking light. After looking at all the ingredients I realized there was a much easier way (they wanted you to make the batter from scratch). I chickend out at the last minute with the sweet potatoes though. The pancakes came out so good. You can't even tell it is low cal/fat. If your brave enough you can add a 16ounce can of sweet potato/yams after it is all sturred together. I'm sure they will be good. I just haven't tried it yet.
