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


  1. Peel the sweet potato. Cut into large cubes and place in a small pot covered with water. Boil until fork tender – about 20 minutes.
  2. Drain water. In a large bowl, mash the sweet potatoes and measure for the amount needed. Place the leftover potato aside.
  3. 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.)
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, cornmeal, salt, baking powder, and sugar.
  5. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, just until moistened – do not over stir.
  6. 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. 
  7. Heat maple syrup. Serve with berries on top and a drizzle of maple syrup.


Vegan version: You can make substitutions with recipe ingredients to be vegan and gluten-free. Switch out the butter for oil (or apple sauce); egg with a  vegan egg substitute; flour with a gluten-free flour mix.
