Savory Sweet Potato Waffles

Savory Sweet Potato Waffles

While this savory waffle may look like an indulgence, it's really the exact opposite! It's a clean recipe, created to add some variety to the basic prep-program. It can be used as a snack, featured as a bun to hold your turkey burger, or in place of sprouted toast served with a fried egg on top. Oh the possibilities are endless for this nugget. 

Sweet Potatoes... We all love them, and if you live a food-prep lifestyle, they are likely a cornerstone of your carbs column in the nutrition program. But, like any delicious (but clean) carb, you can tire of this same old standby. I worked on this recipe in hopes of finding a substitute for 1/2 cup of white rice in my meal plan, and this is REALLY close. Breakdown for this recipe is as follows, for 1 waffle:

Calories: 130 | Carbs: 19g | Fats: 3.7g | Proteins: 5.5g

White rice is a staple in ALL diets for clean eaters, like everyone. On the planet. So to come up with something that you can swap out without really having to think about it that isn't plain oatmeal can prove to be a challenge... while these waffles aren't an exact match, they are so close that it works. White rice breakdown for 1/2 cup serving is listed below for comparison:

Calories: 125 | Carbs: 25g | Fats: 0g | Proteins: 2g

So swap it out, enjoy something different, try this recipe with alternate spice varieties, turn it into a chicken and waffle dish.... try something new.

Savory Sweet Potato Waffles

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and grated (once cooked, 2 cups lightly packed, or about 385 grams)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup green onion, chopped
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp spicy Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

Wash and peel 2 medium sized sweet potatoes. Grate them into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 2 batches on high, for 5 minutes each. Set aside to cool. In a medium sized mixing bowl, beat 2 eggs, mix in 2 tbsp nutritional yeast, cumin, chili powder, black pepper, mustard, soy sauce coconut flour and baking soda. Combine well with fork until fully mixed. Pre-heat waffle iron. Chop green onions and mix them in with the sweet potatoes. Add your spice mixture to the potatoes, but only once potatoes are fully cooled; if you do this prematurely, you will cook the eggs. Mix well with fork until fully combined. Using a 1/4 cup scoop (70 grams per serving), place blobs of mixture onto waffle iron, press flat with a fork, and close iron; cook on high setting until golden brown. Repeat until all of the mixture is used up. This batch at 70 grams per waffle will make 7 waffles, just enough for 1 per day!  Cool fully on a rack, and store in an airtight container in the fridge. 

Chili Cilantro Dipping Sauce

  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 cup 0% Greek yogurt

Finely chop cilantro, combine all ingredients in a small mixing bowl; refrigerate before serving.
