Sweet Potato Waffles🍠🍂🍁

I’m a HUGE sweet potato fan. It’s definitely one of my favorite vegetables, even if it’s on the starchy side. I impulse bought a waffle maker earlier this week because I wanted to make some sweet potato waffles. It did take me a couple of tries to get the recipe down, but now that I did it is so easy to make and you can do soo much with it. I’ve made both sweet and savory revisions of sweet potato waffles and all that you have to vary is what you season them with and what you add as toppings. I’ll show both a savory and sweet version of sweet potato waffles that I made so you can get some ideas.

Savory sweet potato waffle breakfast sandwich:

This sweet potato waffle is seasoned with salt and pepper. I used the half the batter to make one medium waffle. I then topped this waffle with egg, sliced avocado, and hot sauce (not pictured) to make a breakfast sandwich. It was soo good!

Sweet sweet potato waffle recipe:

This sweet potato waffle is seasoned with cinnamon and nutmeg for a little extra sweet flavor. I cooked half the batter twice to make two medium sized sweet potato waffles. I topped this with coconut cream, pecans, and maple syrup.

Below is the general recipe to make the waffles:

Ingredients:

  • Coconut oil or avocado oil to create a nonstick surface
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 2 eggs
  • Seasoning: salt and black pepper for savory flavors, cinnamon and nutmeg for sweet flavors

How to Make Sweet Potato Waffles:

1. Turn on waffle maker to warm it up.

2. Coat the waffle maker with coconut oil or avocado oil. Make sure it is evenly distributed throughout so the waffle doesn’t stick to the waffle maker.

3.  Make a small cut in each sweet potato and place in microwave for 5 minutes or until it has completely softened. Allow the sweet potatoes to cool.

4. Remove the peel from the sweet potatoes and mash the sweet potatoes into a medium sized bowl.

5. Add eggs and seasoning to the bowl and mix together.

6. Distribute the contents of the bowl evenly throughout the waffle maker. You can either make 1 large or 2 medium waffles with this batter, depending on how large/small or soft/crispy you want the waffle. For smaller, crispier waffles, split the batter in 2 and only cook 1/2 the batter in the waffle maker at a time.

7. Allow the waffle to cook for about 10 minutes, depending on the desired crispiness level. Ignore the light if the waffle maker says it is ready earlier. Cook for longer if you used the full batter for a larger waffle or if you’d like a crispier waffle.

8. Top waffle with desired toppings!
