Waffle irons are great! I love how they nicely put orderly and symmetrical miniature squares into food, while cooking from both sides. That is, regular waffle irons. We had a Bugs Bunny novelty waffle iron, and everything that came out of it was flat. No fluff anywhere! Not at all as I imagined Bugs Bunny being like in real life, unless he became roadkill. So I got rid of it-good riddance. Last night my MIL gave me their old waffle iron (they had replaced it with a belgian-style iron), after I mentioned that I needed to look into getting a normal one. I was very excited, and these are the result of my first adventure with a regular waffle iron.
These sweet potato waffles are good. I topped them with butter and cinnamon for the boys this morning, but my imagination is running wild with many variations.
1 med sweet potato, peeled and shredded (use larger shred size if choice between two)
1.5 TBSP coconut flour
1.5 tsp baking powder
Grease and preheat you waffle iron. Combine all ingredients in a bowl- batter should be a little wet, but not swimming.
Spoon into waffle iron. Cook for four minutes, or until slightly browned.
*A future variation I'm going to try will be with pumpkin pie spices and topped with freshly whipped cream, chopped bacon and sprinkled with cinammon and nuts. "Oh yeah!" (Think Kool-Aid guy) ;o)
