These Sweet Potato Waffles are kid-friendly and perfect for breakfast, pre-workout fuel or an afternoon snack. Add some peanut butter in the middle for a fun waffle sandwich!



2/3 cup cooked, mashed sweet potato
1/2 cup milk (dairy or non-dairy)
3 eggs
1/2 cup white whole wheat flour
1.5 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
topping options: nut butter, fresh fruit, yogurt, syrup, chocolate chips etc


  1. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Depending on how well you mash your sweet potato, you may have a few chunks. That’s fine. You could also put everything in a blender or food processor for a smoother batter.
  2. Grease waffle maker and cook 4 waffles.
  3. Top as desired and serve.


For my sweet potato I just poke some holes in a large sweet potato, microwave 5 minutes, let cool and mash with a fork.

Original recipe for 2 waffles: 1/3 cup cooked, mashed sweet potato + 1/4 cup plain yogurt + 2 eggs + 1/4 cup white whole wheat flour (or oat flour) + 3/4 teaspoon baking powder + 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon + 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
