Chia-Almond Sweet Potato Waffles

Posted Nov 19 2013 11:46am

When life hands you a lemon, make some waffles for breakfast.  Err, something like that- right? When you wake up and want the day to go as smoothly as posible, I say make some waffles.  And then make sure that you make enough so you can store some leftovers in the fridge to eat every day of the week.  It cures all of life’s problems.  It’s a proven fact. Also known as: treating yo’ self. 

I’ve been on a major pancake kick lately, and I have no idea where this is coming from.  But today I decided to be a rebel and make something entirely different from pancakes: waffles.  So different, right?  ;) Different as in the toppings really stick to the doughy little carb heaven more than a pancake.

Make these.  They are easy.  And good for you with all of the chia seeds, almonds AND sweet potatoes.  So many super foods in one waffle makes me so excited, I can hardly stand it.  Then topped with nut butter and a glorious drizzle of maple syrup?  Yup. And yup.

IMG_0165 These babies are nutty, yet sweet.  The outside crisps up perfectly while the inside is all ooey and gooey.  You know what I mean…the perfect waffle.  And then if you want the heavens to open up and start singing, top these babies with homemade cranberry sauce, Justin’s almond butter, cinnamon and pure maple syrup.  I can’t even. I just can’t. You must make these.

Chia Almond-Sweet Potato Waffles

adapted from Simply in Season cookbook

2 TB butter, melted

1 medium sweet potato, cooked and mashed (about 1 cup mashed) -can substitute with 1 cup pureed pumpkin

3 chia seed eggs (1 chia seed egg = 1 TB of whole seed or ground chia + 3 TB water)

1 cup almond milk

Stir all 4 ingredients together. 

1/2 cup flour (whole wheat works too)

1/2 cup old fashioned oats (finely ground in blender/food processor)

1/2 cup dark chocolate dusted almonds, finely ground (or any other nut you want to use: walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts, plain almonds…whatever floats your boat or whatever you have in the pantry)

1 TB baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

Sift all ingredients together into the sweet potato mixture.  Mix until combined and bake in a hot waffle iron.
