At first, sweet potato toast was my obsession… now it’s sweet potato in waffle form! When I visited friends and family in Atlanta last month I ate at many burger joints. When ordering a burger, I would have to order it naked (no bun). After the second burger joint, ordering a burger with no bun got boring real fast and I ended up loading on fries because I was so hungry.

But then I thought, why not combine fries into a bun that can be healthy, gluten-free, and fun?! And here we are ladies and gents… sweet potato waffles!

To be honest, I feel weird adding this recipe to the blog because it is just too easy to make. Made with only two ingredients, you literally can’t go wrong.

For a more savory sweet potato waffle, you can add seasonings like salt, pepper, garlic powder, and smoked paprika. For a sweeter waffle, you can add cinnamon, pumpkin spice, chai spice, and coconut sugar.

Either way, these waffles are very versatile. I like making two batches of this recipe so that I can freeze the leftover waffles and have extra on hand for #sundaymealprep. These waffles freeze beautifully and retain freshness after popping them in the toaster to reheat.
