This sweet potato waffles recipe is, 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-heels 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. They’ll be more like hash browns that way. I just thought it was fun to do it on a waffle maker.
Leftover Sweet Potato Waffles
If you have leftovers, place them in a food-safe container with an air-tight lid and store in the fridge for up to three days. To reheat, you can microwave these for a few seconds or you can reheat in a lightly oiled skillet.
