Chocolate Chip Sweet Potato Pancakes

I made these pancakes again this morning and I’m so addicted! I have a gazzilion sweet potato recipes on my blog but in my opinion there’s no such thing as too many. Plus, when you pair it with chocolate…um heaven! If you’re like me and eat a ton of sweet potatoes it’s likely you’ll have some left over in your fridge at some point. So put it to good use and mix up a batch of these for your next weekend breakfast!
