Sweet potato waffles (no flour!)

‘Tis the season for all foods orange, am I right? Carrots, pumpkins, yams, sweet potatoes, etc. If you’re like me, you appreciate a good sale at the grocery store. Enter: sweet potatoes. I found ’em for only 29 cents/pound, at my local Food Lion.

After Thanksgiving, most individuals are looking for ‘lighter’ meals, and other low calorie meal options. Look no further! This sweet potato waffle recipe is not only nutritious, it’s delicious! (Sorry, I couldn’t help myself🤣) What’s even better, it only contains FIVE ingredients. Win-win. I’ll save you any further reading, and let you get to what really matters: making these suckers pronto!


  • 2/3 cup mashed sweet potato
  • 1 banana, peeled and mashed
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter, heated in microwave
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon


Preheat waffle iron and coat with non-stick cooking spray. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until well combined. Spoon half the batter into waffle iron (I used an ice cream scoop to evenly disperse batter). Cook until done. Top with additional warm peanut butter if desired!
