Sweet Potato Waffles

If you follow me on social media, then you knew this day was coming…

Today I’m going to share with you my sweet potato waffle recipe from last weekend.
My tiny human and I had an incredible time making these and they were a hit in the flavor department. 

These waffles are great because they’re:

  • Low in calories!
  • High in Vitamin A (123% DV)
  • High in Vitamin C (132% DV)
  • AND honestly, they’re just delicious.

I made this recipe twice, testing the amount of liquid and the waffle iron temperature. If you’d like your waffles a TINY bit crispier, cut the amount of milk to 1/3 cup. Also, I recommend no higher than a temperature of 4 unless you’re going to put the waffles out early. 

You’ll need: 

  • 2/3c mashed sweet potato (cooked)
  • 1/3c light brown sugar 
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder 
  • 1.5-2 tsp cinnamon 
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 large eggs 
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup milk 

While the waffle maker is preheating, mix the ingredients together (I recommend mixing the first 6 ingredients well, then adding the flour and milk and mixing again).  

A few good toping options are: 

  • Nuts
  • Yogurt
  • Fruit
  • Whipped cream
  • Cream cheese

However, the G family found that our favorite is homemade honey-apple butter. ***If that sounds good to you, stay tuned because I’ll be coming up with a macro friendly recipe soon.***

Sugar Spun Run Biscuits!

This weekend the tiny human and I made homemade biscuits for biscuits and gravy and I promised everyone an update on how they turned out.

Well, they turned out well, were a hit in the our house and so much fun to make. One of us really loved cutting the biscuits so much that we made a baker’s dozen. 

A few of our biscuits came out a little on the thin side but we were in luck because Isaac likes them that way! 

This recipe was quick and easy to make and only requires 6 ingredients that you PROBABLY already have in your pantry.

And best of all…. No ROLLING Required

The recipe we followed was from a blog called Sugar Spun Run.
