Uh, okay… hold on a sec.

Did we really just say two ingredient sweet potatoes waffles??

Yes.

Yes, we did.

And they are SO SO good with crispy edges and truck loads of flavor.

I’m talking better than Eggo or regular waffle good.

Because, they are super quick and easy to make; literally, all you have to do is prep these and toss them in the freezer and you have breakfast all week long. πŸ™‚

I love cooking with fresh ingredients and usually I like making something with vegetables when I first wake up.

This recipe is so rad, because I can jump out of bed and have waffles and still feel good about the ingredients I am putting in my body.

Yahooo!

Now, you can feel free to top these waffles with any of your favorites, but this morning I was feeling the salad vibes.

I got my tahini drizzle going and loaded up the sides with arugula, blueberries, and chia seeds.

It was unexpectedly fresh, delicious, and comes highly recommended!

I was so stoked when the mail came yesterday, because I have been waiting to get my hands on this mini waffle iron that is just so so cute and pumps out the prettiest waffles ever.

Like ever.

A friend on social media had shared some waffles and I just had to buy myself one of those cute $10 waffle irons.

It’s pocket size, dorm room size, and all around perfect.

And no, this is not a sponsored rave- I just really like waffles. πŸ™‚

    Hey Kaylie, how do you think this recipe would work if you made pancakes with the batter rather than waffles? Our waffle maker isn’t functioning properly

    Hi Kaylie,
    I’m a Mom to a college junior trying to get him to eat a healthy breakfast🀞🏼- He loves waffles… so it looks like you did not peel the sweet potato…I’m thinking that would be kinda tough tasting… your thoughts?

    Kaylie, have u ever tried making these with Hannah Yams(?) They are a member of the sweet potato family but are off- white flesh and tan skins and cook quick, like the orange sweet potatoes.

    You can put them in the freezer, and then can you just put them in the toaster like a normal frozen waffle? Does that leave the inside still slightly frozen?

    Hi! Would this recipe work with regular potatoes? I was thinking of also shredding onion and adding it to the mix. Do you think it’d cook the same? Your recipes are AMAZING! πŸ™ŒπŸ» Thank you!

    The pancakes didn’t really work out for me πŸ™ they never got crispy enough and tasted a bit eggy. I’ll have to try with a waffle machine. I’m sure the extra surface area makes a big difference in terms of crispiness. Will report back when I try the waffles!

    Hey there Kaylie! Do you pop the sweet potatoes in the oven for a bit before grating or can you just rinse them and go?

    Hi Kaylie! This is our second and another failed attempt at making the sweet potato waffles. :/ First time we used a regular sized waffle iron…way too big and the sweet potato wasn’t cooking all the way through (in the middle). Second time around we picked up the waffle iron you recommended and we still had the same problem…approximately how long do you cook the waffles for? And it looks like (after watching your video) our sweet potatoes aren’t holding together in a ball before we put them into the waffle iron. We thought our ratio was correct, but not getting great results. Any advice?

    Kaylie, I find these taste very eggy so upped the amount of potato and added some nutmeg, but still very eggy…any suggestions? Thank you πŸ™‚

    Do you think it would be possible to do this just egg yolks? I’m doing the Autoimmune Protocol Diet and right now I’ve only reintroduced the yolks so far successfully, and would LOVEEEE to make this recipe! πŸ˜€

    I was excited to see these waffles, they looked really tasty and crispy in the pictures. However, after purchasing the mini waffle iron from the link on Amazon and making the recipe exactly as stated I disagree that the edges get crispy at all. I left each one in the mini maker for 5-7 minutes and while they did develop a golden color they didn’t get crispy by any means. I had to put them into the air fryer to get them crispy-ish. A little disappointed but still used them as buns. Also adore the little waffle maker it doesn’t take up much room and is a great little addition to my kitchen.

    I just tried making these and it was a complete disaster. I think I put way to much sweet potato mixture in waffle maker. Maybe if you try to make a very very thin waffle it would work better idk. Now excuse me while I go try to get pieces of grated sweet potatoes off anything within three feet of my grater lol

      Hi Ruth, it depends if you want savory or sweet… avocado and bacon for savory or an egg. For sweet, homemade fruit compote or sliced bananas and almond butter are good!

      Hi Tiara, it will probably work, but they won’t turn out the same, because a normal waffle maker turns out thicker waffles, then this mini… that’s what makes them crisp. πŸ™‚

    Hi there! I bought the waffle maker and was curious how much of the mixture you put into it at a time? I see your scoop on the video but wasn’t sure how big it was! Thanks

    Hi how many waffles per serving? You say it is 158 but for how many waffles? On your turkey burger with 2 waffles and an egg you say it is only 168 cal per serving so I am confused.
    Thank you for your help in understanding

    Just made these hung over. Yup they are that easy and come out perfect. I was worried my hubby wouldnt like them as much as the gluten filled waffles but he really digged them. Thanks for the recipe.

    I am trying to make a crepe or tortilla with the sweet potato… as a BATTER, not dough.
    Do you think I could grate then puree in blender, maybe with just one egg, and small amount of water and non gluten flour?

    I wondered approximately how may potatoes equal 4 cups. I’m on a budget and need to know how may potatoes to buy. Oh, and I love, Love, LOVE the waffle iron. I got it to make regular waffles and it works like a dream. Thank you.

    Hey kaylie, The sweet potatoes available in India are very hard to cut or peel Is there a possibility of boiling the potatoes and making a puree instead of grating them?

      Kaylie

      Hi Amulya, that could work, there might be a higher liquid content however when boiled, so I would suggest maybe adding some coconut flour to offset that. πŸ™‚

    That turned out excellent and super easy. First batch I followed your directions, using Japanese Sweet Potato and added nutmeg and cinnamon. Loved the unique texture and taste. Second batch I boiled and blended some SP with egg and coconut milk then added that to the grated mixture. Topped with Cashew Cream and Pomegranate Seeds. Lovely

    How do you prevent the waffles from sticking to the waffles iron? I tried more oil, then switched from olive oil to ghee. The waffles stick very strongly to the iron and comes out in crumbles, only. Do you have a hint?

      Kaylie

      Hi Alex, I haven’t had any issues with them sticking and i’ve made them so many times, so I’m sorry to hear that is happening for you! My only suggestion would be more oil and maybe more egg?
