Paleo Sweet Potato Waffles

One of the hardest parts of going Paleo is the thought of never having Waffles or Pancakes again. Think back to all of your childhood memories you had running downstairs in the morning after smelling some lovely Waffles or Pancakes heat up on the griddle! Maybe thats just me……. but I’m hear to tell you that you don’t have to fear losing out on those memories again now that you are Paleo!

I’ve worked hard to create a Waffle that has the characteristics that a legit Waffle should have. Slight crispy outer crust, nice soft fluffy inside, slightly sweet cake like flavor and texture. This my friends…. was a HOMERUN! It was also pretty damn easy to make so hope you guys enjoy and I can’t wait to see all of your Paleo Sweet Potato Waffle creations!!!


Servings: 4-6 Waffles


  • 1 Cup Mashed Sweet Potato

  • 1 Cup Almond Milk

  • 2 Eggs

  • 2 tbsp Coconut Oil

  • 1/2 Cup Almond Flour

  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Flour

  • 1/4 Cup Arrowroot Powder

  • 1/4 Cup Monkfruit Sugar

  • 2 tsp Baking Powder

  • 1/2 tsp Salt

  • 2 Eggs

  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract (Use Vanilla Powder for 100% Paleo)

  • 1/4 tsp Cinnamon


  1. Start off by poking some holes with a fork in a large Sweet Potato then bake at 400 degrees until soft. This will take about 1 HR to 1 1/2 HR. It will be done when you could easily pierce with a knife. Knife should fall right out if you try lifting the Sweet Potato with it.

  2. Let your Sweet Potato cool then mash with a fork and measure out 1 Cup of it. Stuff your face with the rest! :)

  3. Start off by getting your dry ingredients sifted into a bowl.

  4. Now get the wet ingredients together. First, add the mashed Sweet Potato to the bowl with the Almond Milk, Coconut Oil, Vanilla, Monkfruit Sugar, and Cinnamon.

  5. Get a bowl and add the Egg whites from two eggs to the bowl and the yolks to the wet ingredients bowl.

  6. For the egg whites, beat until the peaks are stiff and set aside.

  7. Whisk up the Wet ingredients bowl until everything is combined and smooth.

  8. You could now slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients until everything is combined. Make sure not to overmix.

  9. Now lightly fold in your egg whites to the batter.

  10. It’s Waffle time baby!!! I used a Belgium Waffle Iron on high (mine is 1-3 heat setting) Once hot, I sprayed with Olive Oil spray then added 1/2 Cup of batter right in the middle and closed. I cooked it for 8-10 minutes flipping the Waffle Iron halfway through.

  11. Remove from Waffle Iron and spread with some Butter! I added on some Maple Syrup and was sent right to Waffle Heaven! You are going to love these!!!
