ee Gluten Free Sweet Potato Waffles: Rich, warming spices, and sweet potato are blended into an easy gluten-free blender waffle batter that is transformed into the perfect fall breakfast.
And I have a whole arsenal of easy, healthy breakfast recipes.
Yet, I have only shared one basic whole wheat waffle recipe.
So it is high time I give some waffles some love–especially since I love waffles more than pancakes myself. It is those crispy edges and pockets for syrup that get me!
So today I am sharing with you one of my fall favorites. And another Easy Sweet Potato Recipe.
The best part about these sweet potato waffles, other than their rich flavor, is how versatile they are.
I love to make them the day after Thanksgiving and sub out my leftover Sweet Potato Casserole for the sweet potato puree. But you could use canned pumpkin or even pumpkin pie –why not?!
It is as simple as gluten-free oats, sweet potato (or pumpkin or leftover Thanksgiving side dishes), a bit of milk (any variety), eggs and spices all whirled together in a blender and then baked to perfection on a greased waffle iron. I use a cheap waffle iron that has lasted for years I have tried a few fancier ones and they fail every time!
Then you just finish with bit of syrup and maybe a few toasted walnuts, and hello, breakfast!
Can you make these Sweet Potato Waffles with all-purpose flour?
Yes, in place of the 2 cups oats, you can use 2 cups all purpose unbleached flour. Just remember these waffles will no longer be gluten-free.
Notes on Sweet Potato Waffles:
- You can use gluten-free oats, old fashioned regular oats, or quick cooking oats for these sweet potato waffles. Do NOT use steel-cut oats.
- To make sweet potato puree–roast sweet potatoes at 400 degrees for 30 minutes, or until fork tender. Scoop out inside of sweet potato and mash or put in food processor and puree until smooth.
- Instead of sweet potato puree, you can use canned pumpkin puree and these would become Gluten-Free Pumpkin Waffles, instead of Gluten-Free Sweet Potato Waffles 😉
- Any variety milk works well in this easy waffle recipe.
Be sure to check out my Oats Recipes, as oats of all forms happen to be one of my favorite ingredients to cook with.
If you are looking for traditional gluten-free waffles, these Light and Fluffy Buttermilk Gluten-Free Waffles from Barefeet in the kitchen always turn out perfect and Gluten-Free Apple Cinnamon Waffles from Nutmeg Nanny are another fall favorite at my house.
