Sweet Potato Apple Pancakes Are a Paleo Eater’s Dream Breakfast

It’s time to switch things up with your standard flapjack fare this Fall! This Paleo recipe features two seasonal staples I love to eat: sweet potatoes and fresh apples, which make for a potato pancake that’s rich in vitamin A ¡ª an essential nutrient to keeping your immune system working in your favor. It also turns last night’s mashed sweet potatoes into a satisfying and healthy breakfast. Far beyond the start of Fall, this recipe will definitely be making an appearance at my table during (at least) one night of Hanukkah this year.
