Sweet Potato Waffles with Berries is a healthy and delicious breakfast treat that even the pickiest eaters will love. You won’t want to skip this for breakfast!
1 large sweet potato (1/2 cup boiled and mashed)
3 eggs, whisked
1 1/2 cups almond milk (or other plant-based milk)
2 tbsp butter, melted
1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
2 tbsp cornmeal
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp maple granules or light brown sugar
1 cup fresh blueberries
1 cup maple syrup
- Peel the sweet potato. Cut into large cubes and place in a small pot covered with water. Boil until fork tender – about 20 minutes.
- Drain water. In a large bowl, mash the sweet potatoes and measure for the amount needed. Place the leftover potato aside.
- In the bowl, combine sweet potatoes, eggs, almond milk, and butter. (If the butter is warm, add it to the milk first and then stir in.)
- In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, cornmeal, salt, baking powder, and sugar.
- Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, just until moistened – do not over stir.
- Heat waffle maker. Coat with neutral cooking oil spray. Pour batter and cook. A more extended cooking setting is recommended for the waffle to cook through for firmness.
- Heat maple syrup. Serve with berries on top and a drizzle of maple syrup.
