Yam Pancakes

I grew up in a very European home and one thing we would have is kartoffelpuffer also known as potato pancakes. They are amazing but I choose to no longer eat potatoes due to the added toxins they carry that I don’t want in my body.

Well I wanted some kartoffelpuffer that I could eat! I found this recipe which was originally made with sweet potatoes, I am sure just as good! I just happen to prefer yams.

These are super filling, easy to make and taste amazing!
