The recipe called for coconut oil, and as much as I like it, and do use it, I am not liberal with oils in my own baking and cooking. I try to limit them to a couple of teaspoons per day at the most. I prefer to get my healthy fats in food…nuts, avocadoes, eggs, olives, light cheeses, along with almond and coconut milks.
But I thought that Sweet Potato Waffles sounded like a great idea so I went ahead and made my own with just a couple of ingredients. And yes, I made them just for myself! Next time I will add some more spices… cloves, allspice, nutmeg and perhaps some ginger, too.
I dressed them with strawberries and some hemp seeds. But I bet nut butters or blueberries and bananas would be lovely, too.
