Sweet potato waffles are such a tasty weekend brunch idea!
‘Tis the season for all things pumpkin. But, as I perused the grocery isle searching for those cans of pumpkin, I couldn’t help but reach for a can of sweet potato puree too. My mind started racing. It was like one of those flip books where you thumb through it and the sequence of pictures moves so fast that it’s like a mini movie.
Except, instead of a movie, my mind was flipping through recipe after recipe of sweet potato possibility. It’s so creamy and dreamy and silky smooth. What if people get tired of pumpkin and want to try for something else? What if someone’s baby moved on from pureed sweet potato and still has a giant stash of ice cubed shaped pureed sweet potato in her freezer (asking for a friend 🤷🏼♀️).
There are a bunch of ways to use sweet potato in your life, and I couldn’t help but think the pureed sweet potato takes the back seat in basically every scenario. Guess what peeps. I’m turning the tables. I’m giving purred sweet potatoes their time to shine.
Ok, I know I already have these fun spiralized sweet potato waffles on the blog. AAAND if you’re super into waffles like me (nooks and crannies, you get me), check out these perfect vanilla ones, these coffee bean ones, and these pumpkin spice ones!!

These waffles are incredibly light and fluffy. They’re super kid-friendly, well family-friendly, really.
I love them for an easy weekend brunch. They’re so delicious topped with a dollop of whole milk yogurt, some granola, and fresh berries. Whether you’re topping it with tons of goodies or doing the traditional butter and syrup route, these waffles do NOT disappoint.
