Savory Vegan Jalapeño Sweet Potato Pancakes

November 26, 2018
I love the many ways you can cook with sweet potatoes. You can fry them, bake them, puree them, or in this case, mash them and turn them into fun sweet potato cakes. These delectable sweet potato pancakes come together with just 5 ingredients, plus salt. Top with guacamole for an irresistible, easy treat!
