What’s better than chicken sausage and pancakes?

Chicken sausage IN a sweet potato pancake!

Flour and Egg Free Protein Sweet Potato Pancake:
1 small cooked, mashed sweet potato
2 scoops AdvoCare Vanilla Muscle Gain (or any vanilla protein powder)
1 Flax “Egg” = 1 Tbsp ground flax seeds + 3 Tbsp water
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1/8 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp baking powder
Cinnamon and nutmeg
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix together. I used a hand mixer. Either make pancakes as is now or…..take them a step further.
Applegate Farms Chicken Apple Sausage IN a Sweet Potato Pancake:
Cut 1 sausage link in half lengthwise, then in half again; so you’ll have 4 pieces. Cook sausage in skillet for a few min. Then add pancake batter around the sausage and cook a few min more; flip pancake, repeat process and there you have it -a 2.0 Version of “Pigs in a blanket” 🙂 **Note: pouring the batter around the sausage takes some skillzzz**
