  • ¾ cup Sweet potato flour (100g)
  • 1 cup gluten free oats (82g) instant or rolled oats
  • cup sorghum flour (40g)
  • teaspoon baking powder (6g)
  • 2 teaspoon psyllium husk powder (6g) or xanthan gum works too
  • ½ teaspoon pink salt (3g)
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg (1g)
  • 4 tablespoon applesauce (30g)
  • cup almond milk (295ml)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (4g)
  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup (40g) optional agave works too
  • 3 tablespoon dairy free butter (42g) melted


  • Add all of the ingredients to a blender.
  • Blitz on high speed to make a smooth batter (the batter should be more on the thick side).
  • Preheat the waffle maker and lightly spritz with olive oil.
  • Ladle the batter onto the waffle iron.Cook the waffles until they are golden brown (this should take a few minutes).
  • Use an egg spatula to carefully remove the waffle and repeat the above 2 steps.


  • You should get 2 waffles with this mixture.
  • Keep in mind that the waffles WON'T BE EXTREMELY firm, there will be slight softness which is normal for the ratio of flour to liquid.
  • This is the recipe that you need for the Sweet Potato Flour.
  • Be sure to spray the waffle maker iron with cooking oil, each time that you make another waffle.
  • I recommend using a high speed blender .i.e Vitamix or Blendtec to puree the waffle batter as it will be quite thick.
  • The waffle batter should be more on the thick side, don't be tempted to break down the texture too much or the overall result will be soft.
  • Waffle machines may vary, when using yours be sure to follow the manufacturers guidelines.
  • You can use a Flax Egg in place of applesauce.
  • You must make these waffles with another "flour" or "flour substitute. If you use sweet potato flour by itself the waffles will be soft and fall apart.
  • For best results, I recommend eating the waffles immediately, if you need to re-heat them I would suggest using a grill/broiler to retain their crispiness.
  • Sweet potatoes are naturally sweet, therefore it's not essential to add any additional sweetener unless you choose to.
  • This is a blender friendly recipe, you don't need to separate the dry and wet ingredients first, simply placing everything in your blender works just fine.
