Sweet Potato Blinis with Ricotta & Dates
(yield: 14 blinis, about 3 servings)

1/3 cup cooked sweet potatoes, pureed
1/4 cup plain, low-fat yogurt 
1/4 cup milk
1 egg
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/8 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
Pinch of salt
Vegetable oil, as needed
1/3 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
1/4 cup dates, chopped

In a medium bowl, whisk together sweet potato puree, yogurt, milk, and egg. In a 
separate, small bowl, combine next 4 ingredients. Add dry mixture to sweet 
potato mixture, and mix well to form a smooth batter.

Heat 1 tbsp of vegetable oil in a large, non-stick pan. Place tablespoonfuls of 
batter into the pan, and cook over medium heat, about 3 minutes per side 
(adding more oil to the pan if necessary). 

Allow cooked blinis to drain on a paper-towel lined plate. Serve with a dollop 
of ricotta, and some chopped dates over the top.
