I was first introduced to Sweet Potato Waffles by the Granola Girl before she was granola. I didn’t think I would like them because I didn’t like sweet potatoes. But I wanted to be nice and eat what I was served.  I ended up loving them.  I asked her how she made them and she had used a mix. I started buying the mix. But after moving out of Texas, I’ve had a hard time finding it except on Amazon.  I ran out of the last bag of mix that I had and happened upon a recipe for them.

So I decided to make it myself. And since I have never read the list of ingredients on the mix, there might be preservatives in it. Homemade is always better, right? 🙂 The homemade version was much better tasting anyway.

Marcia, while we haven't ever tried making these with almond milk, it seems like it would work fine. If you do try it, we'd love to hear how it goes!

These are delicious! I don’t make the purée. When I bake sweet potatoes for dinner I always make extra. I just scoop it out and use it in the recipe. I baked the potatoes cut in half drizzled with olive oil, and baked cut side down for 30 min at 400.

I've been buying the 10 lb. bag of sweet potatoes from Costco. I wash them, place on parchment paper on cookie sheet. Bake them all and cool. Then I put them in freezer bags.
