Preheat nonstick electric griddle to 375°F (190°C) or preheat large nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat. In large bowl and using wooden spoon, combine pancake mix, milk, sweet potatoes, egg, oil, rind and nutmeg, stirring just until large lumps disappear. Batter will be very thick.

Spray griddle or frying pan with cooking spray. In batches, drop batter onto griddle by ¼ cup (50 mL) amounts (about 45 mL), spreading out to 3 inch (8 cm) rounds. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until bubbles form on top and flapjacks are golden on bottom. Carefully turn; cook another 2 minutes or until other sides are golden. Makes 8 flapjacks.

Serve with maple syrup, if desired.
