sweet potato spice waffles coverFall is my favorite time of the year and one of the reasons I like the season so much is because of all the delicious foods.  Pumpkin is typically my go-to fall flavor, however, this year I am a little obsessed with sweet potato.  Pumpkin pancakes have been my favorite breakfast treat for quite some time now, but after this morning’s Sweet Potato Spice Waffles, it may be tough for me to decide between the two recipes.  I made the Sweet Potato Spice Waffles completely vegan today and also added lots of cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin pie spice to boost the nutrition.  These waffles are thick and delicious, and are the perfect meal to wake up to on a Fall day.  Please try out this recipe and let me know which you like best–the Pumpkin Pancakes or Sweet Potato Spice Waffles… take my word, it is a tough decision.  Happy Fall and Happy Baking!

  • 2/3 cup Milk (rice, almond, cow etc.)
  • 1 Tbls Canola Oil
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 cup Sweet Potato Puree
  • 1 Tbls Sugar
  • 1 Cup Perfect Waffle Mix
  • 3/4 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1/8 tsp Nutmeg

Prep:

Plug in your waffle iron and let it pre-heat.

Make:

In a bowl, whisk together the milk, oil, vanilla and sweet potato puree.  In a separate bowl, whisk together the waffle mix, sugar and spices.  Slowly add the dry mixture to the wet mixture and whisk to combine.  Let the batter stand for 2-5 minutes.

Bake:

Pour about 1/2 cup of the batter onto the hot waffle iron.  You may need more or less batter depending upon the size of your waffle maker.  The waffles are done when the edges turn golden brown, however consult your waffle iron for best results.

Serve with granola, pecans, butter and/or agave nectar.  Enjoy!
