21 Day Sugar Detox Sweet Potato Waffles

16 Nov

Breakfast for dinner!!! It’s one of my favorites. Perfect for a lazy night where I don’t feel like dirtying a bunch of dishes. Not. I dirty 50 dishes every time I enter the kitchen. I am a never ending dirty dish producer. Even having a dishwasher doesn’t help. It puts a mild dent in the situation.

As you know, I’ve been following the 21 Day Sugar Detox for the past two weeks. Last time I reported, I felt great. Yesterday, however, I hit a slump. I felt exhausted and had a headache…I never have headaches. I’ve been working out about 4 days a week but I never consider my workouts high intensity so I haven’t been supplementing with sweet potatoes, as the program suggests. When I read the daily email from Balanced Bites, it said to reevaluate your workout plan and if you’re suffering from fatigue to add in sweet potatoes. Bingo! I thought that I wouldn’t need extra carbs from working out, but it turns out I probably do. Plus I did quite a strenuous strength training workout Wednesday….I probably should have paid more attention to it all.

Sweet potato waffles to the rescue!!! They turned out amazing for my BRINNER ….I thought I’d share

Makes two large waffles

1/2 of a large sweet potato, baked and mashed (around 3/4 cup) I cooked mine in the microwave

2 eggs, separated

1 tablespoon coconut milk

1 tablespoon sun butter or almond butter

1 tablespoon coconut flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (or to taste)

For the topping:

1 tablespoon coconut milk

1/2 tablespoon sun butter

2 drops of vanilla

dash of cinnamon

crushed pecans

1. Whip your egg whites with a hand mixer until they form stiff peaks.

2. After cooking your sweet potato, mash it up and add it to the egg whites with the sunbutter. Mix until incorporated. Don’t over mix or the whites will flop.

3. Add your egg yolks, vanilla and coconut milk and mix until just combined.

4. Fold in dry ingredients.

5. Place half of the mixture in a sprayed/greased waffle iron. Cook until done!

6. For topping: Mix together everything but the pecans and microwave for 45 seconds. Pour on top of waffle with pecans. If you’re not on the sugar detox top that baby with maple syrup!!

    I think I may make these later! I love sweet potatoes and absolutely feel a difference in my muscles when I eat them on a regular basis (which I do, about 4 nights a week).

    Any excuse to add back in sweet potatoes would be a good one 🙂 Awesome recipe! Do you know what kind of waffle maker you have? I know you said large, but the last time I made waffles from another blog I had to double it just to squeeze out two. And the original version called for 3 “regular” sized waffles. Lol. So I always wonder if we just have an unusual-sized one.

      Well mine is about 6-8″ in diameter. But the waffles turned out a little smaller than the diameter. I don’t usually eat the whole waffle so I was fine with this. In the picture you can kind of see where it didn’t go all the way to the edge. I would say two servings for 2 moderately hungry people, or double it if you want more.
