Gluten Free Sweet Potato Waffle
We have been LOVING this gluten free sweet potato waffle recipe, a savory little gluten free delight! Gluten Free, Dairy Free & Lower Carb. The dash of cumin adds such a nice earthiness to the flavor profile and goes perfectly with the sweet potatoes. We enjoyed ours with a dollop of plain yogurt, some green onions, and Mama Lil’s Peppers. If you have not tried these peppers I highly recommend! You can also make these waffles sweet with some butter and maple syrup; add any topping of choice and enjoy! This is a fun twist on our classic gluten free waffles and especially great if you are embracing a lower card diet. Enjoy Josie

Why Sweet Potatoes and not any other potato?
Well, let me tell you about the incredible health benefits of sweet potatoes, my friends! These colorful root veggies are like nature’s little treasures for your body. First and foremost, they’re chock-full of beta-carotene, the stuff that turns into vitamin A, and that’s like a superhero for your eyes, skin, and immune system. Sweet potatoes are also packed with fiber, which keeps your tummy happy, aids digestion, and helps maintain steady blood sugar levels. And who doesn’t want to feel full and satisfied after a meal? I know I do!
Now, let’s talk about the other goodies in these beauties: vitamin C, potassium, and manganese. These vitamins and minerals are your heart’s best friends, they support your immune system, and they’re essential for overall well-being.
Oh, and here’s a little secret: the natural sugars in sweet potatoes are like a slow-release energy boost, so you’ll have energy to tackle your day without those sugar crashes. Sweet potatoes are also kind to your joints, thanks to their anti-inflammatory properties.
