These easy and simple waffles are made of just two ingredients – egg and spiralized sweet potato – and are a healthy, nutritious spin on everyone’s breakfast favorite. Pumpkin spice gives them a little extra flair, for a satisfying and whole foods friendly breakfast!
Pumpkin Spice Sweet Potato Noodle Waffles
If you’ve never tried a spiralized sweet potato waffle before, you need to add this Pumpkin Spice Sweet Potato Noodle Waffle to your list of must-makes. With just two simple ingredients (sweet potato and egg), you can make a waffle that’s gluten-free, Paleo-friendly, keto-friendly, and a tasty, clean eating friendly way to enjoy waffles.
Spiralized sweet potatoes are subtly sweet, which makes them the perfect noodle to make into a waffle. With a drizzle of maple syrup, you won’t believe how delicious these are. They’re kid friendly too, my son loves them!
You can make these waffles with just a pinch of cinnamon, you can add some fresh berries (like blueberries) or even some chocolate (try these chocolate waffles!)
I recommend using a Belgian waffle iron, because the deeper the grooves, the easier it is to really pack in the noodles and make sure they bind well together. I also recommend letting the waffle sit in the iron for a little longer than you would with a regular flour waffle, until it browns a bit.
Make these waffles this holiday season with friends or family and they will be a hit!
