Sweet Potato Waffle Recipe

Happy Sunday! I love Sunday mornings because I usually make a yummy breakfast and I’m so excited to share a sweet potato waffle recipe with you that I recently made! Today’s breakfast included two eggs, toasted whole wheat flax bread, and a super sweet, organic peach. (By the way, that whole wheat flax bread makes awesome toast. It’s so good with a little butter.)

These eggs were laid yesterday afternoon and I bought them about an hour after the egg (chicken loving, blanket crocheting) lady gathered them. Yes, they taste amazing and I can really taste a difference from the ones purchased at the store. The poke & spread method really allows the good flavor of the egg to shine.DSC_0920

I recently had some amazing sweet potato pancakes and I also just got a Belgian waffle maker. Well, I looked at a bunch of recipes online to break that waffle maker in and couldn’t find exactly what I wanted so I improvised. And it turned out pretty dang tasty. I think next time I might even double the spices and experiment with using all wheat flour or perhaps spelt in place of the all-purpose flour. (UPDATE: I haven’t yet tried this with gluten-free flour, but I plan to!)

    Those waffles look AWESOME! I have wanted waffles for forever – I really need to get a waffle iron ):

    I’ve always wanted to get a frozen hot chocolate, but every time I go to NYC I forget!! Terrible of me, I know. I’ll get there one day.

    Blueberry Lemon Creme Brulee please!!

    People keep posting DELICIOUS LOOKING WAFFLES lately! I know I couuuuld get a waffle maker (I see them for really cheap at Goodwill- I think people get them for wedding presents and just never use them) but I am kind of scared at my lack of counter space. But oh my God that looks so good!

    I loved the movie Serendipity, but never had the actual frozen hot chocolate myself. I have been to NYC several times and have somehow missed out. It’s on the Bucket List.

    I work at a Waldorf Astoria Hotel in South Florida, and we have a Serendipity in our hotel. This is very very bad and very very good….I get the frozen hot chocolates from my friends who work there all the time! They are so delicious!!
