It’s all about finding healthier alternatives to the things we love, right?! Either that or just a pain in the ass way to make everything we love with healthier ingredients. lol I swear I’m just being exaggerated and these sweet potato waffles aren’t that hard to make.¬†They really are a better way of eating and they fit perfectly into many diets and even are vegan friendly.
What I loved about them was how filling they are. If you notice in the ingredients there are a lot of items that you normally have in your home, especially if you’re an overnight oats kind of person (I’ll have some recipes up soon for these). You can always top it with just maple syrup, a homemade berry compote or even just eat them as is. They play on that savory role that you could even just have them for dinner. I mean…who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner?!
Try them! Whip it up, cook them up and eat them up! When you’re done making them be sure snap a quick picture and send it this way. Tell me what you did differently or how you liked it.
YASSS! DO IT!
Sweet Potato Waffles
Whether you want to make this vegan friendly or just have a healthier type of waffle, this sweet potato waffle wins!
Clean and peel the sweet potato skin. Then, cut into even chunks so it can boil evenly.
Bring water to a boil then place your sweet potato chunks in the water. Stir on occasion until you can put a fork in your sweet potato (roughly 12-18 minutes).
Drain the water then mash it and add the banana in the mixture to mash.
You'll then begin to add your wet ingredients. Mix your dry ingredients to the side and add it in.
Once everything is completely mixed you can pour some in your lightly coated (with either olive oil spray or coconut oil) waffle maker.
Be sure that you get them browned and/or crisp before serving. You can top them with bananas + maple syrup or a berry compote (recipe linked in recipe notes).
You can also use this recipe for pancakes.
Here is the recipe for the berry compote.
For flax eggs you'll need¬†one tablespoon of flax seeds and three tablespoons of water to replace one egg. Be sure that you grind the flax seeds before mixing it with the water.¬†Whisk it until it has a gelatin consistency.¬†If you already have ground flax seeds you'll use 2 1/2 teaspoons pre-ground with the same measurement of water.
