Sweet potato waffles

I've been experimenting with other types of flour. I'm trying to be better with eating. Less gluten, less sugar, and less milk. Allergies and Asthma are excuse my language a bitch.

The problem is, is that Daddy doesn't like my experimentations. He'd rather me bake with all purpose flour, whole wheat flour, and cane sugar. The boys on the other hand do not mind at all that I experiment. They love to devour pretty much anything. I've read that eliminating some things out of your diet helps with environmental allergies. That explains why I'm trying to eat less gluten, sugar, and milk. I'm not perfect, but I'm trying.

This weekend I made Sweet Potato Waffles.

I also made a cranapple drink in the NutriBullet. Daddy bitched complained about the seeds from the cranberries being in the drink. It was an apple + a handful of cranberries + water. No sugar was added. Sorry he teases me about my experimentations, and I tease him about his lack there of in trying them. It's a mutual teasing that we have going on back and forth.

Both boys asked for more waffle. Daddy didn't like them. I thought they were pretty good.

Sweet Potato Waffles:

Preheat your waffle iron. Peel, cook, and mash your sweet potato. Mix the dry ingredients, then the wet ingredients in a different bowl, and combine. Whisk it all together. I spray my iron lightly with cooking spray, add in the mix, and poof there's the waffle when the light goes off.

My mom served sweet potatoes a lot when I was a kid. They were inexpensive, and we had them lots of ways. Baked with butter wasn't bad. But I never heard of waffles made of sweet potato. Sounds like a good idea.

I've been playing around with different foods myself. Trying to become dairy free right now and drinking more almond milk. Just wish it wasn't so expensive!

I think that is awesome your boys are behind your experiments and are willing to try new things!

I was looking at the recipe and I think I would be able to eat those. They sure do look delish.

I'm going to try these! My allergies are going crazy this year so I've decided to go gluten free. It also helps with my auto-immune, giving me more energy. I'll try these out and let you know if boys like them!

Oh no my comment deleted! Short version- I'm going to try these since I've decided to go gluten free too! We can be partners who dine 😉
