Roasting sweet potatoes then making waffles?
Ain’t nobody got time for that!
Grating raw sweet potatoes, mixing it with a couple staples, calling it a paleo dinner and impressing your children without resorting to bribery?!
Nailed it!

Of course there are recipes around the interwebs for all types of sweet potato waffles, here’s my take on it. The marriage of the ‘protein intake disguised as food‘ version and the ‘pretending waffles are good for you when they contain vegetables‘ version.

2 cups grated sweet potatoes
1/4 cup almond flour 
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp coconut oil
Dash of cinnamon (to your preference)
1/4 tsp vanilla
Whisk in a separate bowl:
3 eggs
– Add eggs to sweet potato mix, mix all ingredients together well
– Cook on a heated, oiled waffle maker
– When cooked, use two forks to prod and lift the waffles of the waffle maker. Of course this is optional, but if you use this method it helps to pretend you are a giant who is operating a tiny waffle fork-lift (beep beep beep shooooooom…it’s called committing the role people!)
– Stop to question the possibility I have no authority writing recipes
– Serve hot (I don’t think these would be good reheated as they crumble easily)
– Enjoy and smile in realization that though I’m no cookbook author, I am your friend and only share the good stuff with you.
Recipe makes 5-6 waffles aka not enough for two toddlers and two adults, the kids will eat them all without threats or bribery. Dinner bliss!

Topping ideas:

Toasted pecans
Maple syrup 
Bacon (because bacon)
