Sweet Potato Waffles – the most tasty way of incorporating healthy veggies into your diet.
I made these Sweet Potato Waffles two times in last two days. They were so good! First time I put some pumpkin spice in them. They tasted good, but had darker color. This time I used vanilla instead of pumpkin spice so to keep their beautiful orange color.
This is the most tasty way of incorporating healthy veggies into your diet. There is one full cup of pureed sweet potatoes (from about 1 large steamed, cooked or baked sweet potato) in 6 waffles.
The batter may seem a bit thicker, but don’t allow that to bother you because thickness comes from sweet potatoes and not from flour. When they cook, they will be very soft.
I used brown sugar which you can substitute with sweetener of your choice, but know that it does give a nice molasses flavor to waffles. I don’t recommend substituting oil (butter) with applesauce as there is already a lot of vegetable puree inside.
