Sweet Potato Waffles

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by LUv 2 BaKE

Sweet potato gives these waffles a nice golden peach color and wonderful flavour. They are crispy on the outside and soft in the inside. Sweet potatoes provide almost half the recommened daily allowance of Vitamin C and two to five times the recommened amount of Beta Carotene!

I just got a new Belgium waffle maker and went in search of some recipes to try it out. I printed off five (out of over 900 posted here!). My husband said this one sounded the most interesting, so I tried it first. Yummmm! And they're a healthy version too. If you are used to using a boxed mix, this may seem like a lot of work. But it goes together pretty quick and is well worth the effort. Thanks so much for sharing. This one goes in my best loved file!
