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
  • 2 eggs


  • 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.
