These are, hands-down, my new favorite breakfast. I never liked sweet potatoes before I started eating clean, and even after 3 years of eating this way, I was still kinda on the fence. But this recipe single-handedly tipped me over. It’s official, I’m totally, completely, head-over-heals in love with sweet potatoes. And the best part is there’s no added sugar! Top with a little unsweetened apple sauce to complete the dish. Positively amazing. In fact, I’m lucky there are any photos at all. These disappeared really quickly.
Note: These are admittedly a little complicated to work with on a waffle iron. If you don’t want to mess with it or you don’t have a waffle iron, you can just make little patties and cook them in a skillet. I just thought it was fun to do it on a waffle maker.

Clean Eating Sweet Potato Waffles
(Makes approximately 5 waffles on a belgian waffle maker)
- 1 1/2 lbs peeled sweet potatoes, grated (about 2 large sweet potatoes)
- 3 whole, large eggs
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted or in liquid state (melted, organic butter or ghee will work too)
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- Unsweetened apple sauce for topping
- Mix all ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Be sure to mix well so everything is well combined or it won’t cook properly on the waffle maker.
- Cook in batches on your waffle maker the same as you would with regular waffle. But keep the waffles on the thinner side or they don’t cook well.
- Remove from waffle maker, top with unsweetened apple sauce and serve.
