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.

Servings 2


  • 1 large sweet potato peeled, Blade D, noodles trimmed

  • I'm a purist, like my dark chocolate straight.

  • I love chocolate melted and drizzled on fruit!
  • What can be used instead of a waffle iron? They're not very common in the uk and quite pricey
  • I've been noticing Aloha online lately but didn't know much about it. Now that I've read your post I've gotta find me some! (Or win it! Hehe). It sounds perfect since it's sweetened with coconut sugar. Thanks for the info!
  • Hi Ali, My computer is running very slowly these days and I've just sat here for 5 min. watching the cookies from your site load on to mine. I've enjoyed your blog so much, your creativity , your healthy attitude, your enthusiasm. Really, you are such a pleasure. But things have changed. The huge amount of cookie are a problem, even your header: the inspiralizer, the cookbook, "Shop", get started on YOUR machine. I purchased a spiralizer because of you and your blog, but since your version came out it's harder to follow the recipes because they're focused on your own product. Your site has become a merchandizing technique, and your blog reads like an ad. I have been so impressed by your daily recipe. What a lot of work you must do, because they're all GREAT! But there are clear differences between merchandizing sites and blogs and you've changed sides. I'm sorry to see that.
    • Sorry to hear you feel that way! If you don't feel like the information I offer anymore isn't for you, feel free to remove it from your bookmarks! I work extremely hard to bring brand new recipes each week, while offering a product that far out-performs the rest for a much better spiralizing experience (as I'm having). If it wasn't for things like ads or sponsored posts or my products, I wouldn't be able to bring everyone this fresh content so frequently - these are sources of living for me, which make it possible for me to continue this blog. Sorry to hear you won't be enjoying the site anymore!
      • I love the food; I love the website. That's all.
  • Yay!!! I don't think I've ever had chocolate for breakfast..........yummy!
  • I enjoy eating my chocolate by itself, or with a cup of coffee. And chocolate chip cookies are my weakness! Can't wait to try these waffles - such a creative recipe!
  • Who would have thought? Sweet potatoes and chocolate? I'm totally trying this :)
  • I'll eat chocolate in any way, shape, or form!
  • I love chocolate at the end of a stressful day. Ally, Also on another note, I love your recipes, but always have to write the nutritional info on them. Have you ever thought about adding it to the bottom of the recipe like a few other blogs do?
  • these look amazing! my favorite chocolate is dark chocolate, 85%, with a small glass of red wine, usually about an hour or so after dinner. definitely going to try these though!
  • I can't wait to try these at Christmas time! Not just chocolate for breakfast, but chocolate combined with spiralizing, my boyfriend's family are in for a treat!!
  • These look so yummy and I know my kids would enjoy them as much as I will :)
  • I'll eat chocolate any way I can get it, though it does have to be good quality chocolate. Peanut butter and chocolate is a personal favorite :)
  • I love chocolate WAYYY too much to choose which one I like the best!! Although this recipie may be a new favorite ;) will try soon!! Looks soooo good!
  • Waffles and chocolate are the perfect combination! I would love to try this chocolate!
  • I love my chocolate organic and VERY dark. Also chocolate covered candied ginger!
    • Chocolate covered candied ginger sounds amazing! Thanks for sharing!
  • What a super clever idea! I think some chocolate fudge sauce would be ace )but also negate any health benefits!)
    • Haha!! That added ingredient can be our little secret. ;) But these waffles will make eating healthy fun and rewarding. No chocolate fudge sauce required.
  • I love chocolate in cake! Or brownies!
    • We love a good chocolate brownie. Have you tried the zucchini noodle muffins with chocolate chips? It sounds like you'd love it!
  • My favorite way to enjoy chocolate is OFTEN!
    • Right?! This recipe was made for you!
  • I love dark chocolate! I eat chocolate sparingly, but I love to add dark chocolate cocoa powder to oatmeal, smoothies, pancakes, waffles, peanut butter...pretty much anything I can.
    • Smart! We love quick and healthy ways of getting something a little extra sweet in our life. Thanks for sharing.
  • I like my dark chocolate straight up plain or with a swipe of peanut butter on top.
    • Yum! The ultimate open faced sandwich!
  • I love dipping a chunk of chocolate in the peanut butter jar!!
    • Yes!!! We love this. No spoons required.
  • Eating it straight up - letting a square just melt in my mouth, the darker the chocolate the better!
    • Totally agree!! Letting a square of dark chocolate melt on your tongue is heavenly.
  • I eat a square of dark chocolate every night before bed! It satisfies my sweet tooth but doesn't weigh me down. I'd love to try Aloha!
    • You would LOVE Aloha!! It's a must, especially for those of us who love our chocolate.
  • I am totally making this tonight!
  • these look very good
  • 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!"
  • 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.
  • I totally need to try this! What a brilliant idea!
  • With peanut butter!
  • Can't wait to try! Have to go with chocolate covered strawberries!
  • 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...
  • Mmmmm chocolate -- love it! Super dark is sooo good and I love it with ginger so good! This waffle recipe sounds divine!
  • Love my chocolate with cheese and baby dills.
  • My new favorite way is melted dark chocolate on gluten free crepes. With whipped coconut cream.
  • 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....
  • Can you use a flax egg in place of the egg?
    • 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
    • We would just recommend not putting it in!
  • These are amazing I’ve made them so many times!! Is there a way I could sub the egg to make them vegan?
    • We haven't give that a shot but if you try, please let us know!
