    • 1/4 cup Maple Syrup (plus more for topping, optional)
    • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
    • 2 cups Almond Flour
    • 2 tsps Baking Powder

    • Boil the sweet potato until it’s fork-tender, roughly 10 minutes. Drain and set aside.
    • In a food processor, add the cooked sweet potato, eggs, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Process until blended. Add the almond flour, baking powder, and cinnamon and process until fully combined.
    • Coat the waffle maker with some of the coconut oil and add enough batter to cover the bottom of your maker. Cook for 5 minutes or until golden brown. Repeat the process until all the batter is cooked.
    • To serve, top with almond butter, raspberries, figs, pumpkin seeds, cocoa nibs, coconut ice yogurt or ice cream, and maple syrup if using. Enjoy!


    • Leftovers? Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to three days. Freeze for up to two months.
    • Serving Size: One serving is one waffle.
    • Additional Toppings? Add additional berries or nuts.
    • No Waffle Maker? Make them into pancakes on a pan instead.
