Easy Sweet Potato Waffles

Several days ago my friend, Kate, sent me a message on Pinterest with a link to a recipe for Sweet Potato Waffles… they looked fabulous!  But when I read through the ingredient list, I knew I wouldlikely never make them.

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.
