Sweet Potato Waffles

Sweet Potato Waffles

These Sweet Potato Waffles are kid-friendly and perfect for breakfast or brunch. Made with oatmeal flour, sweet potatoes, cinnamon and a touch of sweetener.

If you follow me on social media (which you should: @marianadiezcoach). You probably saw how much I bragged about my new waffle maker. I had been wanting one for a while but Adrian kept saying that we don’t have enough storage space at our kitchen for all the things I have. I have to be honest our kitchen is not the biggest and it definitely doesn’t have a lot of cabinets. And, well I do have a lot of kitchen utensils and appliances. But even though Adrian says some of them are useless I promise I use all of them. I just enjoy too much cooking and baking and if you like it too you probably know how important is to have this or that piece of equipment right? hahaha

How to Make Sweet Potato Waffles

Anyway, just to prove my point that I was going to be using my waffle maker a lot, just kidding, The truth is that I am obsessed with waffles (you can read more about my obsession on my previous post:) I have been testing lots of different recipes using my waffle maker. Some of them have not been quite that good, but some of them like these sweet potato waffles turned out delicious!

For this particular recipe I used oat flour but I think it might also work with almond flour for those of you who are on the keto diet. (I am not sure though. I haven’t personally tried it).
I sweetened them with a little bit of agave since the sweet potatoes add sweetness to them. Plus, you will probably be serving them with honey or maple syrup so you don’t need them to be that sweet.

I hope you enjoy them! And if you have any ideas or suggestions on a new waffle recipe please let me know! I would love to experiment and come up with something new. Until next time!
