Paleo Sweet Potato Waffles

The easiest pezziest recipe ever! It's a sweet potato take on waffles or hash brows. This recipe is Whole 30 approved! Sweet potatoes are a killer source of carbohydrate. Read this great article if you want more info on why sweet potatoes are such a fabulous fuel source How sweet potatoes can help your running by Runner's World.

**Fair Warning: I don't usually measure when I cook. I'm a firm believer of dash here and a spoonful there. If you notice it needs a little more oil, just had it! This is for a more savory version 
Love my helping hands!
Step 1: Wash & then grate one large sweet potato into a bowl. You can use any type of grater. I have this nifty contraption that grates into all different sizes 
Step 2: Add: 
-2 whole eggs
-1 Tablespoon of coconut oil (ghee will work too) 
-1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (basically a couple shakes of my cinnamon shaker!)
-1/2 teaspoon or a few shakes of Salt, pepper, and garlic powder (optional), nutmeg (optional) 
Step 3: Spray olive oil onto a heated waffle iron. I like mine heated to medium/high. 
Step 4: Give it a good mix in a bowl. Be sure it's evenly coated! 
Step 5: scoop about a cup (just cover the iron) of the mixture, close the lid, & cook till it's crispy & brown. Usually takes 6-8 minutes! 
**Topping ideas: My absolute fav is Almond Butter on top. Or you can try unsweetened applesauce. If you don't mind the extra sugar (syrup is not Whole 30 approved) then a little maple syrup is always delicious on top! 
I like to balance my meals with a healthy carb/protein/and fat. So a great side to your sweet potato is Applegate Chicken Apple Sausage fried in some Ghee, then scramble it up with some eggs. Top it off with wholly salsa & wholly guacamole.

Eat up! Let me know if you like it!
