Sweet Potato Spice Waffles


  • 1 cup mashed sweet potato (about 2 whole)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • ¼ cup non-dairy milk of choice
  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • ½ cup tapioca flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ginger
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp cloves


    Do Ahead:
  1. Roast the sweet potatoes at 400° for 35-45 minutes, until they easily pierce all the way through with a fork. Let cool, then peel off the skin. Using a hand mixer or potato masher, mash the potatoes until mostly smooth. Store, covered, in the refrigerator until ready to use (up to 3 days).
    To Make the Waffles:
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flours, baking soda, salt and spices.
  2. In a large bowl, or the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the mashed sweet potato, eggs, coconut oil, milk, maple syrup, and vanilla. Beat together on medium-high speed until well combined. It probably won’t be perfectly smooth due to the sweet potato, that’s ok.
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the sweet potato mixture and beat on low-medium speed until combined.
  4. Ladle the batter into a preheated waffle maker, about ½ cup per waffle. Cook until desired doneness (approximately 3-5 minutes). Every waffle maker is different, so adjust accordingly. The waffles will be dark golden color and slightly crispy on the outside when done.
  5. Serve with toppings of choice: maple syrup, fresh berries, cooked cinnamon apples, greek yogurt, etc.
