Sunday AAFit Brunch - Sweet Potato Waffle

Updated: Apr 5, 2020


Figured we'd go ahead and give this a try for something a little bit fun, where every now and then we will bust out some things we personally do away from the fitness studio to mix it up when eating healthy.


First on the docket is the sweet potato waffle. Great thing about this guy is that it can be used either in a sweet OR savory fashion, depending on what you are craving. For savory, simply throw a perfectly cooked egg on top and pair with some turkey bacon or chicken breakfast sausage. BOOM, all the taste of a waffle but healthy! If you need something on the sweeter side, bust out some unsweetened pecans and a tiny bit of real maple syrup (as pictured), and pair it with a side of fruit. Versatility ladies and gentlemen.


So obviously you will need a waffle maker for this...but other than that, here's the recipe we used:


3/4 cup of cooked sweet potato (soft or pre-mashed)

1/2 cup almond flour

1/2 cup almond milk (reg milk works too)

1/2 cup oats

2 eggs

1 teaspoon baking powder

Cinnamon to taste (we used about 1 teaspoon)

1/4 teaspoon salt


If you don't know how to make a waffle you are probably a lost cause, but just blend all this up and pour about 1/2 cup of batter on your waffle maker (depending on its size), and let it do its thing!


Depending on your size waffle maker this usually makes somewhere between 4 and 6 waffles...so double up if you have more mouths to feed. Great thing about these is that they freeze exceptionally well, and are easy pop-in-toaster type morning on-the-fly eats.


Personal trainer approved!


Enjoy!
