Feel free to use pumpkin meat, canned pumpkin, yams (without added sugar) or butternut squash instead of the sweet potatoes.
The bone broth protein is an optional ingredient but it adds high quality collagen protein and is flavored with stevia and monk fruit. If you add in the vanilla bone broth protein, than you would probably need less if any stevia added to this recipe.
Great toppings you could add to this include crushed walnuts or pecans, dark chocolate pieces, coconut flakes, grass-fed butter or berries. If you want syrup on the pancakes than try out this sugar-free syrup that is flavored with monk fruit.

This is a gluten-free, grain-free pancake recipe that is full of micronutrients, healthy fats and fiber. Your family will absolutely love the texture and flavor of this and it may just become a household staple for you!
This is not a keto recipe as the sweet potato does have a lot of starchy carbs. However, it could be a good recipe for someone who is cycling out of ketosis with a higher carb meal as it has anti-inflammatory properties and tastes amazing.
This seems like a lot of eggs for 4-6 pancakes, but anytime you are cooking with coconut flour, you will need a lot of eggs as coconut flour is much drier than most baking powders and absorbs a lot of egg and other wet ingredients in order to bake properly. If for some reason, you have a sensitivity to eggs, you can try one of these egg substitutions.
