It’s fall y’all! Nothing tastes better than a short stack of sweet potato pancakes with some fresh berries on top. This is a recipe I’ve been using since I first started bodybuilding almost a decade ago. It’s one of those healthy foods that doesn’t taste “healthy”; it just tastes yummy.

It’s a cleaner version of a standard pancake recipe because I’ve substituted oats for flour, egg whites for whole eggs and Stevia for sugar. (It tastes good, I promise.)
