Ingredients

Instructions

  • Set waffle iron to preheat.
  • Place the cooked sweet potatoes, oats, flour, milk, eggs, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and orange zest into a blender. Blend until well combined and there are no chunks of sweet potatoes left.
  • Spray waffle iron with cooking spray. Pour ⅓ cup batter into preheated waffle iron. Cook until the outsides of the waffles are golden and cooked through, about 6-8 minutes. Serve with maple syrup and pecans, if desired.

Notes

Recipe: This recipe was adapted from Cooking Light.
Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight container. They will last about 3-4 days in the fridge. Reheat them in the oven at 350F for 5 to 10 minutes to warm them through.
Make Ahead Tips: You can easily make up the batter up to 2 days ahead of time. Blend everything together and then keep it covered in the fridge until you are ready to use it.
Substitutes: For best results, follow the recipe as is. However here are some common substitutes that would work well in this recipe.
  • Any variety milk works well in this recipe. Feel free to keep it dairy-free with almond milk or coconut milk or use regular milk if you prefer.
  • To make it gluten-free, replace the all purpose or whole wheat flour with 2 cups of gluten-free oats.
  • To make it keto-friendly, substitute the flour and oats for almond flour.
  • To use what you have on-hand, you can actually make these using leftover sweet potato casserole or any other type of sweet potatoes you have. They will also work well with pumpkin puree!
