Paleo Sweet Potato Waffles made with four essential ingredients and a low FODMAP option | Gluten Free, Dairy Fee, Sugar Free
So how are we feeling about 2017 so far? One week in! Before I know it I’m going to blink and it will be 2018. Gah! Someone should kick me in the shins just for saying that. Here’s to living in the moment in 2017!
I love January.
I love fresh starts and feeling inspired to actually get sh** done. Last week I downloaded a free trial of You Need a Budget and now I’m feeling excited about tracking expenses and saving receipts. It sounds boring as anything but it feels so empowering to know what’s going on with my finances.
My physical spaces are getting a little make over too. There are three giant trash bags sitting in our room to be recycled, donated, and thrown out because I’m all about letting go of things that no longer bring me joy. It’s amazing how much clutter can build up in no time.
And of course, January and clean eating go hand in hand. Now that Christmas is safely behind us, along with all the sugary sweets. I’m ready for some monster salads, hearty soups, and clean dinners. And breakfasts! My sweet tooth is ready for a little break (I give it a couple of weeks) which means it’s time for more savory, uncomplicated breakfasts. Enter: these savory paleo sweet potato waffles!
Just before the new year I went into my website analytics to see what was the most popular in 2016. The idea was to get an idea of what’s popular/what kinds of foods trend well so that I could create more similar recipes. It turns out that you guys really like paleo & low FODMAP dinners & paleo vegan desserts.

About this recipe: Paleo Sweet Potato Waffles
The paleo sweet potato waffles require only 4 essential ingredients (plus salt, pepper, and garlic powder is optional) and only one bowl to make.
The batter is made up of grated sweet potato, scallions – only use the green parts to keep this low FODMAP – eggs and coconut flour.
These don’t take long to make which makes them great for quick breakfasts or brunches. You can even make and store these in the fridge for a few days to warm up in the morning. I haven’t personally frozen these yet, but I imagine you can pop a few in the freezer and reheat as you need.
