Sweet Potato Waffles

Sweet Potato Waffles

The Sweet Potato Waffles are done and are currently taking turns on sheet pans in the freezer. Once they're all frozen, they'll get stored in a zip-top freezer bag 'til Sunday morning.

I couldn't find a recipe for vegan sweet potato waffles, so I had to get creative. I started with the Banana-Nut Waffle recipe from N'con (because we've made it a lot and know it's a solid recipe) and made the following adjustments:
  • replaced 2 average-size bananas with 2/3 cup sweet potato puree 
  • increased nutmeg to 1/2 teaspoon
  • replaced walnuts with pecans
They came out perfect! This planning ahead thing is nice. Plus crossing items off To Do Lists feels pretty great. So, here goes...
  • Sweet Potato Waffles with Maple Cream
  • Mac n' "Cheese"
  • Baked Apples
  • Toasted Brown Rice Tea
  • Winter Solstice Cocktail
Hooray!  Oh, and that's our tree in the background of the photo above.  Isn't it pretty?  I'll try to post more pictures of it soon.

i see your tree peeking around those waffles of yumminess! ooooooooh, yay! :) i have yet to make waffles as a vegan - and i think i'm gonna have to give your sweet potato waffles a go. i especially love that you've got some pecans in 'em. soooo scrumptious - and they look perfect, Marni!
