3-Ingredient Dark Chocolate Spiralized Sweet Potato Waffles Recipe

First there was the pumpkin spice sweet potato noodle waffle.

Then there was the parsnaffle.

Now, there’s the spiralized dark chocolate sweet potato noodle waffle.

There’s something amazing about spiralized waffles, and I’m so happy to have been the first person to bring them to the Internet!

I’m a lover of all things breakfast – pancakes, French toast, maple syrup, waffles, granola, oatmeal, Taylor ham egg and cheeses (#jerseygirl), I love and want it all. My fondest memories from elementary school are when they’d serve “Breakfast for lunch.”

I was always first in line. Guess I’ve always loved food! Or, carbs?

I could devour a box of dry cereal in a sitting. I’ve done it.

Luckily, now that I’m a mature, sophisticated woman (hehe), I’ve upgraded from Lucky Charms to spiralized waffles! Not only are these waffles clean eating friendly (they’re THREE ingredients), they are packed with flavor.

The sweet potato noodles cook with cinnamon first, so they’re infused with that subtly sweet, fragrant taste and then they’re packed into a waffle iron with dark chocolate for a sweetness that’s not overwhelming, just all kinds of right.

And they’re only THREE ingredients!

If you’re looking for an affordable waffle iron, I love this Krups belgian waffle iron – it gets the job done!

I made these with ALOHA’s superfood chocolate – specifically, their Original Dark Chocolate flavor. What I love most about ALOHA’s chocolate is that it’s vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO, soy and dairy free. Plus, while you’re eating chocolate, you’re packing in those antioxidants and nutrients!

The ingredients for this chocolate bar are as follows: Peruvian Fair-Trade Raw Cacao Nibs/Beans, Balinese Coconut Sugar, Ecuadorian, Raw Cacao Butter, Daily Good Greens Chocolate, Philippine Raw Coconut Flakes, Vietnamese Raw Cashews, Tahitian Vanilla Bean.

It’s no secret I love ALOHA, and these waffles are just another reason to love them. Actually, last week, I came home and really was craving some chocolate, and I broke open their Macadamia-Coconut bar and ate half of it and didn’t feel a sugar-high or any of the bloating you feel when you eat, say, a thick, sugary milk chocolate bar. I just felt my sweet tooth satisfied!

Heck, it’s the holidays! What better time than to treat yourself or gift someone some delicious, thoughtful, healthy chocolate?

I am totally making these waffles for my family on Christmas morning this year, or sometime during that holiday week – I’m so excited! I think I may start a family tradition once Lu and I have kids.

Chocolate Chip Sweet Potato Noodle Waffles + ALOHA giveaway

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Total Time30 mins
Servings: 2


  • 1 large sweet potato peeled, Blade D, noodles trimmed
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 2 tablespoons chopped dark chocolate I used two rectangle pieces from ALOHA’s Superfood Dark Chocolate
  • cooking spray
  • optional to top: maple syrup, blueberries, pecans, etc.


  • Preheat a Belgian waffle iron.
  • Place a large skillet over medium heat and add in the olive oil. Once oil heats, add in the sweet potatoes and season with salt and cinnamon. Toss and cook for about 10 minutes or until noodles are cooked through. You can cover to cook more quickly.
  • Transfer the noodles to a large mixing bowl and add in the egg and chocolate. Toss to combine.
  • Spray the preheated waffle iron with cooking spray and pack in the noodles carefully. You may have to play around with the noodles to get them to fit in all of the grooves.
  • Cook the waffle according to your iron’s settings.
  • When done, carefully remove the waffles and transfer to plates. Top with any toppings you’d like, but don’t forget the maple syrup.

these look very good
Ronda says:
I love chocolate every way! But I have especially been looking for healthy chocolate for my health issues since most chocolate is full of soy and/or GMO. I would absolutely love to try Aloha chocolate!! It sounds like "just what the doctor ordered!"
Kathy says:
In a little way, I agree with Janet T but if it hadn't been for Ali and the spiralizer Blog and info, I would not have found out about this new way of eating. I was never a great fan of courgettes (zucchini) but now I buy them every week plus sweet potato, turnips etc and I now also look out for other veg like kohl rabi which I had never tried. I eat more chicken and fish now because I can make more exciting dishes as sides with my spiralizer. I still use my favourite recipes but replace most of the old carbs. So although I understand where Janet T is coming from, I will still continue to print out the recipes and use them because they work for me.
Sarah says:
I totally need to try this! What a brilliant idea!
Kristin says:
With peanut butter!
Sabra says:
Can't wait to try! Have to go with chocolate covered strawberries!
diane says:
I have to admit that I love junk chocolate, although I'm always willing to eat it healthy if that's what I have. But, here's a comment/question about this recipe... Do remember haystack 'cookies'? That was chow mein noodles with chocolate or butterscotch. Do you think this recipe could convert to those cookies? They were always a huge hit, but so unhealthy. But if this would work...
Karen says:
Mmmmm chocolate -- love it! Super dark is sooo good and I love it with ginger so good! This waffle recipe sounds divine!
nstandley says:
Love my chocolate with cheese and baby dills.
Nara says:
My new favorite way is melted dark chocolate on gluten free crepes. With whipped coconut cream.
Susan says:
I love chocolate plain or with fruit and in winter I love a cup of (dairy-free) hot chocolate, even better with marshmallows!
I have been really loved cacao nibs sprinkled on everything lately! Greek yogurt, oatmeal, apples and PB, smoothie bowls....
Carly Sears says:
Can you use a flax egg in place of the egg?
Meaghan says:
Give it a try! We haven't used a flax egg before with this recipe but it should work! We always encourage experimenting! Let us know if you do!
Could you do this recipe without the chocolate? If so what would you recommend for a replacement or none
Meaghan says:
We would just recommend not putting it in!
Anonymous says:
These are amazing I’ve made them so many times!! Is there a way I could sub the egg to make them vegan?
Meaghan says:
We haven't give that a shot but if you try, please let us know!

we’re flying back to new jersey on friday and already starting to miss it here in florida ☀️ the weather’s nice, but I’ll most miss all the time spent with our family together 🙏🏼 for the past (almost) 2 years, we’ve spent a lot of time in florida with my family and that’s been the silver lining of the pandemic 🙏🏼 right now, my grandmother is here and that time is extra special. I don’t think I’d ever have the chance to be with her for this amount of time otherwise, and I am so, so grateful for it 👵🏼💓 photos by @karlakorn 📸 ...
