In the video we made muffins and then used the rest of the batter to try out sweet potato pancakes. We have the recipe for that one also. Yummy! 
We added milk to our batter in the video, but have decided water would cut the batter, just as well, so in the interest of calories we used water to replace milk. 
Also we have found that adding the baking soda and baking powder to the flour and whisking them together works best- so we have altered the instructions and advise using two mixing bowls; which in the original video we did not. 
Either way they have been made these were so tasty they have been added to our Fall Meal Prep Rotation.
