Sweet Potato Waffles ( vegan, gluten free)

Yet again sweet potatoes take over my recipes. Apologies to any followers who don’t like sweet potatoes, as you can now see I love everything about them and will be making numerous sweet potato recipes. Can I just say my waffle maker was such a good investment and I love making homemade waffles!

To think for most of my life I lived off high amounts of processed foods. My waffles growing up consisted of heavy amounts of butter and doused in cinnamon and sugar. That’s all changed to healthier versions.

These are super easy to make and quite yummy. I like getting creative with toppings so I made a yummy almond butter syrup. I’ll post that recipe as well. Seriously I truly hope others enjoy my creations as much as I do. I do have to say my recipes are healthy and if it’s not something you are used to the taste may be bland.

Ingredients for waffles:
1 small sweet potato peeled
1 flax seed eggs  ( 1 tablespoon flax meal 3 tablespoons water)
2 cups gluten free oat flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon nutmeg

1 teaspoon cinnamon

Optional 2 medjool dates or other sweetener of choice.
1/4 teaspoon sea salt

I boiled my sweet potato then mashed it with a fork.

Grind oats into flour add to a mixing bowl. Add all ingredients and mix well. If using dates you can add the batter to your blender to blend.

Heat your waffle iron to setting 3 and pour on batter. There’s enough batter for 2 waffles.

As waffles cook prepare almond butter syrup.

Almond butter syrup recipe:
1/2 cup almonds
1 teaspoon coconut oil
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon coconut syrup
Almond milk ( about 1/4 cup pour in as it runs to get a creamy sauce consistency)

Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend add in the milk as it runs.

Once waffles are done top with the syrup and fresh or thawed frozen blueberries and enjoy!
