Savory Sweet Potato Pancakes ~ yum!!

Oh, these are so good I can't quit eating them!!
I roasted the sweet potatoes on 400 last night so that they'd be ready this morning. While you're at it, you could substitute regular whole grain flour for the sprouted flour by mixing the yogurt and flour the night before. That way the flour would have all its nutrients available, and its phytate anti-nutrients broken down.
1 large onion ~ chopped small
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp cumin~ toasted, then ground
1/4 cup sesame seeds ~ toasted
1 cup sprouted spelt flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
3/4 cup whole yogurt
1/4 cup filtered water
1.5 medium-sized sweet potatoes ~ roasted
3 eggs
3 tbsp butter ~ melted
whole yogurt
Saute' the onions. While you're doing this, toast the sesame seeds in a dry skillet on medium-low heat. Then toast the cumin, and grind (if whole). Add the toasted items, plus the red pepper flakes, to the onions and fats. Saute' till the onion is soft but not brown.
Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. In another bowl, mix wet ingredients. Add wet to dry and mix just until blended.
Fry 1/4 cup blobs in coconut oil and serve hot with whole yogurt on top.
So tasty!

I have heard that a person can be called "addicted" when they want not just any drug, but a particular one, and not taken just any way, but a very certain way. Well very urgently I have become addicted .

I need cherries. Not just any cherry ~ I need Bing cherries; don't give me Rainier or even Brooks. Bing cherries from Kashiwase Farm at the farmers' markets. I need them three times a week. And if there is a pound bag in the shopping basket as I'm leaving the Kashiwase stand, half the cherries could be gone by the time I make it home. I can't stop myself. I eat one right after another.

What am I doing typing? There are still a few left in the bowl from our trip to the market last night! I'll seek treatment if I fight Anjali for the last one...! ;-)
