It’s S U N D A Y ! A perfect day for pancakes…am I right?!

I’ve got one amazing recipe for the simplest 3-ingredient sweet potato pancakes topped with a delicious, fresh, sweet, and tart roasted berry rhubarb compote.

Yep. That’s a whole lot of tastiness on one plate!

This past week in my weekly SPUD delivery, I got a nice batch of fresh, local, organic rhubarb. I haven’t had rhubarb in ages so I was itching to get in the kitchen and put it to good use.

Rhubarb is actually a vegetable but is typically prepared and enjoyed like a fruit! It’s quite tart, but with some cooking it’s natural sweetness blooms and it pairs perfectly with berries!

Rhubarb is also a nutritional powerhouse! It’s packed with vitamins, minerals, and has a great amount of dietary fibre. Good for your brain and your belly!

I chose to roast the rhubarb with a mix of raspberries and blueberries and a generous drizzle of raw honey to cut the tartness and keep the compote wonderfully sweet.

The compote turned out precisely how I had hoped it would – thick, sweet, and perfect for smothering all over my sweet potato pancakes!

Ah yes… on to the pancakes…

In my SPUD order I also bought a can of organic sweet potato puree! The puree worked wonderfully combined with a tiny bit of coconut flour and eggs to make a smooth batter for my pancakes.

I opted to use a few drops of stevia for a little extra sweetness, but I realized once the pancakes were topped with my berry rhubarb compote that I could have probably gone without, as the compote was sweet enough for the entire dish!

The one drawback of pancakes with sweet potato and coconut flour is that they take a few minutes to cook up in the pan, so patience is required – but trust me, they are well worth the wait!

This recipe combines ample amounts of fibre with healthy complex carbohydrates, antioxidants, natural sweetness, and only 7 ingredients in total!

That’s a win, win, win in my mind!

The hubby was close by as I prepared this batch of pancakes and was kind of enough to help me make my second little video! Have a peek and be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel!

  • Hi, these sounds delicious but I’m wondering if you’ve ever substituted the sweet potato purée for pumpkin purée?!

  • Yup totally making these. My 10 month old loves sweet potatoes but I feel like I do the same thing ALL THE TIME. I may even make two batches, one sweet and one without the stevia/honey so I can serve with a fried egg on top. Love me some sweet potatoes and eggs. Thanks for thinking of such an awesome recipe!

  • The pancakes looks delicious. I was wondering about the sweet potato puree. You said you bought a can of it? I don’t think I have ever seen that. Is it in a regular grocery store? Can you cook the sweet potatoes and mash them?

    • Yes! It’s maybe not at all grocery stores. You can definitely use mashed sweet potato that you just cook! 🙂

  • All I can think about are these pancakes!! They look totally delish and I love how they are only 3 ingredients!!

    • Thanks Rebecca!! Have you made them yet?? You must – and you should totally do the Rhubarb compote with it too!

    • HI Ashley – you could try with another flour but the batter might be slightly runny as coconut flour is very absorbent. I believe it would still work though!

    • They do, don’t they?? I loved the pops of colour in the dish! Thanks for commenting as always Julie!

  • Sounds yummy…just had some cinnamon pancakes this am…maybe next one though! Question…how is this considered only using 3 ingredients…I count 7. I guess you are just counting the pancake part (minus the sweetner)?

    Thanks:))

    • Hey Shartran, yes it’s “3-Ingredient Sweet Potato Pancakes”…. less the optional sweetener, and the rhubarb compote is an addition to that – If you read through the whole post I do mention that the entire recipe is 7 ingredients total 🙂
