Instructions
  1. Drain and rinse candied yams so you eliminate the syrup from the yams. This may sound crazy but it works. Mash well then add to mixing bowl.
  2. Combine all ingredients (except for the coconut oil) and mix until well combined, mashed and stirred into a pancake batter. Add 1-2 T. of coconut flour if you feel as if you need to thicken the batter.
  3. Preheat large non-stick pan to medium heat. Add ½ T. coconut oil and swirl.
  4. Pour ½ cup at a time into the pan. Flip to other side after 3-4 minutes or until the batter starts to bubble/small bubbles that come to the surface.
  5. Flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes until done. Set pancake off to the side and continue process until all pancakes are done.
