Vegan Sweet Potato Waffles
My favorite kind of recipes are the ones that you can throw into a blender and whip up. This recipe is one of those recipes! If you don’t have a blender, you can use a food processor or you can mash the ingredients together by hand.
GLUTEN FREE SWEET POTATO WAFFLES
The best part about these gluten-free sweet potato waffles is the simple reminder of Fall in each bite. The sweet potato blended with the cinnamon really add a cozy and warming feeling.
Yes, I know it’s the middle of Summer, however, these waffles taste great year round!
HOW TO MAKE SWEET POTATO WAFFLES
START WITH SWEET POTATO PUREE
You will need baked sweet potatoes for this recipe! I like to bake mine the day prior, and store them in the fridge overnight. Simply poke holes in the sweet potatoes and bake them in the oven at 400F for 30-40 minutes or until soft and tender.
PSA: You can also use canned pumpkin puree.
BLENDING THE INGREDIENTS IN A BLENDER
To make these waffles vegan, you can simply use a banana in the recipe as a binding agent. If you don’t have a banana or don’t like banana (and aren’t vegan) you can use an egg in the recipe instead! The options are endless.
In a blender, add in cooked sweet potato (skins removed), banana, oats, baking powder, milk, and sweetener of choice. I use Yacon syrup from Organic Traditions. Yacon is a root indigenous to the Andes of Peru and Bolivia. Also known as the Peruvian Ground Apple orÂ Sunroot. Â Yacon Syrup is a light amber colored syrup with a delicate, sweet floralÂ taste. It is the most incredible natural sweetener you have ever tried. Yacon Syrup is a healthy substitute for otherÂ conventional sweeteners such as sugar, honey, agave and maple syrup. If you don’t have Yacon syrup, then you can use any other liquid sweetener!
