Sweet Potato Pancakes

I know it's been a while (A whole year and a couple months) but I'm back to blogging now!
I have a great recipe for sweet potato pancakes. Here's what you'll need:

2 Large sweet potatoes

2 eggs
1/2 cup of oats (Steal cut or old fashioned) If you use the old fashioned you will not need to cook them.

1/8 cup of unsweetened cashew milk (Or any milk of your choosing)
1 tsp of vanilla extract
Optional -1 teaspoon of Cinnamon and nutmeg (or as much as you want)
4 1/2 TBS of Coconut oil
1 fresh plum

This serves between 2-4
                                      Boil 2 large sweet potatoes until they are soft enough to mash.

In a bowl mix 2 eggs, vanilla extract, cashew milk and seasonings if you choose to use cinnamon and nutmeg then mix in the oats. 
                                       Then add the mixture to the mashed sweet potatoes.

               Heat a pan on medium heat and instead of butter use 2 TBS of coconut oil to the pan.
                                          Using a large Spoon, scoop the batter into the pan.
  Cook the pancakes 3-5 minutes on each side. Try using 2 spatulas when you flip the pancakes, because they can fall apart easily.
 Core a plum and warm them in a pan with another 2 and a half TBS of coconut oil. If you want you can season them with cinnamon and nutmeg as well.

When they are soft top the pancakes with them. Also drizzle the coconut oil the plums were in over the top of the pancakes instead of syrup.
