I love making waffles, especially Protein Waffles.  These Sweet potato waffles were so fluffy on the inside and slightly crisp on the outside.  The first bite was such a pleasant surprise!

I actually have gone through 3 waffle makers in the past year.  I killed my first one by overloading it with batter, the second one was a piece of junk, and my 3rd one has proved to be amazing.

HOW TO MAKE SWEET POTATO WAFFLES

To get started with this recipe, you will need some already cooked and mashed sweet potato.  I like to microwave mine because it is so easy, but you could also bake them in the oven, boil the peeled and cubed sweet potato on the stove top, or cook them in the instant pot.

  • To microwave a sweet potato, simply pierce the skin of the potato a few times and place the potato in the microwave.  Microwave for 5-8 minutes until the potato can be easily pierced with a butter knife.
  • To boil a sweet potato, peel and cube the sweet potato, place in a sauce pot, and cover the potato with water plus 1 inch.  Cook over high heat until the potatoes can be easily pierced with a butter knife.  About 15 minutes.
  • To cook the sweet potato in the Instant Pot, follow this helpful tutorial.

Now that we have our mashed sweet potato, measure out 2 cups into a mixing bowl.  Now we add in the egg, a pinch of salt, cinnamon, and a little flour.

Mix the ingredients together with a fork to form a smooth batter.

We can now get our waffle iron plugged in and pre-heating.  I like to have the temperature set to medium-high.  Be sure to spray the waffle iron with cooking spray so the sweet potato waffles do not stick.

For each waffle I measured out 1/3 cup of the batter and put it in the center of the waffle iron.  This was simply for photo appeal and so I would have even sized waffles.  This batter could be used to make 1 whole waffle depending on how large your waffle iron is.

This recipe made 4 waffles about 4 inches in diameter.

Cook the waffles according to your waffle irons directions.  Mine has a green light that lets me know when they are done and it is pretty accurate.

When the waffles are finished, top them with a little maple syrup and walnuts.
