These healthy sweet potato waffles are light and crispy and great with sweet or savory toppings.  They're paleo friendly, gluten free, dairy free and unsweetened.




  1. Place a wire cooling rack in your oven and preheat your oven to 275 degrees F.
  2. Plug in your waffle iron to preheat it.  I used a mini waffle iron, but any type should work.
  3. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together mashed sweet potato, eggs and avocado oil.
  4. Whisk in tapioca starch, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt.
  5. Pour 2-3 tablespoons of the waffle batter onto the preheated waffle iron.  Cook until golden brown and crispy. You'll want to cook the waffles a little longer than normal to get them extra crisp (3-4 minutes).
  6. Remove the waffle from the waffle iron and place it on the wire cooling rack in your preheated oven to keep crisp.
  7. Once all of the waffles have been cooked, remove them from the oven and serve immediately.


*For the mashed sweet potato, cut an orange sweet potato into cubes and steam in a steamer pot until tender (using a baked sweet potato is fine too).  Cool to room temperature, then place the sweet potato in a large bowl and mash with a fork or potato masher.  You may remove the skin after steaming, but I did not.
