Sweet Potato Waffles


We’re waffly excited about these guilt-free sweet potato waffles using no refined sugars or flours!



2 sweet potatoes (to yield 1 1/2 cups purée)
2 cups almond milk
3⁄4 cup coconut oil, melted
2 eggs
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 tbsp. pure maple syrup
11⁄2 cups whole wheat flour
1⁄2 cup buckwheat flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1⁄4 tsp. kosher salt
11⁄2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1⁄4 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg


Steam the sweet potatoes until tender, then remove skin and mash into puree.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the purée, almond milk, coconut oil, eggs, vanilla, and maple syrup.

In a separate large mixing bowl, combine the whole wheat flour, buckwheat flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and nutmeg.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until just incorporated.

Heat a waffle maker until hot.

Spread about 1 heaping cup of the batter over the hot waffle iron and cook for 3-5 minutes, or until the waffle is golden-brown on both sides. Repeat with remaining batter.

Serve with additional pure maple syrup.
