Gluten Free Sweet Potato Waffles

While I was up in Leavenworth, WA last weekend teaching yoga, Tyler and I stopped by The Hunter’s Wife Health Bar,  for a snack. First of all I love everything on their menu, they have a wonderful selection of fresh juices, smoothies, bowls and some fun waffles, as well as a variety of Kombuchas on tap. One item in particular stood out on our visit, however. Tyler got the sweet potato waffle and it was amazing…so I of course was inspired to recreate it when I got home! There’s quite a few different recipes out there and the thing I liked best about the one at the Hunter’s wife was that it had banana and a lovely mix of spices in it so I put together the following recipe and it turned out great. This is a super healthy and yummy recipe that is perfect for fall, I hope you enjoy it!

Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene). They are also a very good source of vitamin C, manganese, copper, pantothenic acid and vitamin B6. They are also a good source of potassium, dietary fiber, niacin, vitamin B1, vitamin B2 and phosphorus. (All good stuff!)

Ingredients (serves 4-6)

  • 1 1/2 cups Sweet Potato Puree
  • 1 Mashed banana (the riper the better)
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Cups Gluten Free Waffle/Pancake mix (I like Namaste and Bob’s Red Mill best)
  • 1 Tbsp Honey
  • 1-2 tsp Cinnamon*
  • 1/2 tsp Nutmeg ground*
  • 1 cup Almond milk (or whatever milk you like)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract

*If you’re a pumpkin spice lover, you can substitute it for the cinnamon and nutmeg.


  1. Pre-heat waffle iron
  2. Separate the egg whites from the egg yolks and in a large mixing bowl blend/wisk the egg whites until they are fluffy (best to use an electric mixer) This step makes for light fluffy waffles.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients including the egg yolks to the fluffy egg white and blend until smooth and uniformly mixed.**
  4. Pour 1/3-1/2 cup of mixture into waffle iron and cook until golden brown on each side
  5. Serve with Maple Syrup, or Yogurt or whatever else you like with your waffles. I Had mine with honey greek yogurt and peaches and my son had his with butter, syrup and whip cream.

**If you want to boost the protein content you can also add a scoop of your favorite protein power during step 3, I use Vanilla Isalean from Isagenix.
