Paleo Sweet Potato Breakfast Waffles

You’ll notice a lot of sweet potatoes in Paleo cooking. Some people love them, and some hate them. No matter what camp you’re in, you can’t deny that they are a nutritious addition to any diet. 

They have potassium, Vitamin A, Vitamin B-6, and more! They’re also low in sugar and high in fiber. So if you’re not a fan, give this waffle recipe a try anyway to see how it goes. 


  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 TBSP coconut flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 medium sweet potato cooked, skin removed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 TBSP maple syrup
  • 1/2 TBSP coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup almond milk
  • Optional: berries or fruit of choice to serve alongside waffles


Bake sweet potato until soft all the way through. Let cool, remove skin. This part can be done the day before. Store in fridge if leaving overnight.

Preheat your waffle iron.

Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl.

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

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

Pour the batter onto the waffle iron and cook according to the directions on your waffle. Note the mix will be thick so use a spatula to spread the mixture. 

Alternatives: if you don’t have a waffle iron, you can make pancakes instead. Preheat pan on medium and use extra oil. Spread out the mixture into round disc shapes and wait until bubbling starts in the middle to flip.
