Sweet Potato Waffles
1/2 a large sweet potato
1 cup + 2 tbsp milk of choice
2 Tbsp maple syrup
2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp cloves
1 Tbsp avocado oil
Cook your sweet potato on high in the microwave for 4 minutes (or alternatively, roast it in the oven for 45). Discard the outer peel. In a large measuring cup, combine the inside of the cooked sweet potato, milk, and maple syrup. Use an immersion stick blender to puree. Set aside.
Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl: flour, baking powder, spices. Use a whisk to combine. Then, add in the sweet potato puree, avocado oil, and 2 eggs. Stir with a fork until combined.
Heat your waffle maker per owner instructions. Lightly spray cooking spray into iron and then add just enough batter to cover and cook.
