[Foodie Friday Recipe] Paleo Sweet Potato Waffles
Enjoy this comforting fall breakfast with a twist – Paleo sweet potato waffles! Here’s how to make them…
Mmm…waffles… One of my favorite comfort foods is a plate of hot waffles with homemade butter and a drizzle of real maple syrup… Or fresh, sliced strawberries and a dollop of whipped cream… Or…these amazing Paleo sweet potato waffles!
Enjoy these gluten-free waffles either savory (as listed below), or sweet – with jam or maple syrup. They are super easy, delicious, and healthy. The sweet potato adds tons of fiber, lovely color, great flavor, and a hint of sweetness. These are perfect for a hearty fall breakfast topped with an egg for some healthy protein and fat!
(Note: If you don’t have a waffle maker, you can use the same recipe but cook them as pancakes on a griddle or in a cast iron skillet.)
Paleo Sweet Potato Waffles
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: 20 Minutes
- 2 sweet potatoes (about 1.5 cups peeled and grated)
- 4 large eggs (divided)
- 4 tablespoon coconut flour
- 2 ripe avocado
- 4 green onions (finely diced)
- 2 lime (freshly squeezed)
- 4 tablespoon fresh cilantro (chopped)
- hot sauce (optional)
- sea salt and pepper
- coconut oil cooking spray
Preheat waffle iron. In a large bowl, stir together grated sweet potato, one egg, coconut flour and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
Spray waffle iron generously with nonstick spray. Spoon one half of the sweet potato mixture into the center of the waffle iron. Close the lid and cook for 5-8 minutes, or until the waffle begins to turn medium golden brown. Remove waffle and repeat with second half of the batter.
While waffles cook, poach or fry eggs. Peel and pit avocado. Mash together with diced green onions and lime juice. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Drizzle with hot sauce, if desired.
