Guilt Free Sweet Potato Waffles!

Sweet Potato Waffles

Hey Ascenders!


Did you really read that correct? Hell yes, guilt-free sweet potato waffles! Why not?!


I know what you’re thinking right now: Aren’t carbs in the morning a bad thing? Well, I want to encourage you to see the whole carb thing a little more in the grey zone instead of the black and white one. This means don’t get too crazy with your carbs and when you do, become aware and find your balance. 


“Don’t eat carbs in the morning” is more of a guideline than a rule because it depends entirely on your personal goals and lifestyle. Generally speaking, there’s nothing wrong with eating your carbs in the morning if you’re expecting a heavy workout that day (and for example if your major goal is gaining muscle or strength).


A lot of nutrition is of figuring out what works for you. That may mean eating a later breakfast (Around 9:30/10 am)! One thing is for sure: A sweet potato is absolutely the better option versus loading up your body with a bunch of grains in the morning. Not to mention it’s sweet! And who doesn’t like to start their morning off with something sweet without any guilt? 😉


The best thing about these waffles is you can enjoy them with whatever you want. Today I want to present you with two different options, a sweet and a savory one. You can decide what flavor to go with. And It’s actually not that complicated and time-consuming to make waffles, all my “I hate baking people” will be surprised :D.


Sweet Potato Waffles Recipe


Here are your ingredients for today:


  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup cooked, mashed sweet potato (or pumpkin puree)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 tablespoon melted coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup almond milk

For the sweet version:

  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • 1 cup of fresh blueberries


For your savory version:


  • 1 cup ham (diced)

  • 1 1 fried egg 

  • 1/2 cup of almonds


  1. Cook the sweet potato in salt water until it’s done (this process goes a lot faster is you slice the potato thin before you cook it). If you use pumpkin puree, you don’t have to prepare it.

  2. While the potato is cooking preheat your waffle iron.

  3. Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl (everything through the nutmeg).

  4. Whisk together all the other (wet) ingredients in a medium bowl.

  5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until combined.

  6. Let batter rest for 5 minutes.

  7. Pour the batter (it will be on the thicker side) onto the waffle iron and cook according to the directions on your waffle.

  8. If you do the sweet version: Add the honey and the blueberries on top. If you do the savory version: Fry an egg, add the diced ham and the almonds on top of the waffle and serve it together with the egg on top.
