  • 3 cups oat flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk or your favorite milk
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup substitute with your favorite sweetener
  • 3/4 cup sweet potato puree canned or fresh
  • maple syrup and toasted pecans for topping (optional)


  • Preheat the waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, oil, maple syrup and sweet potato puree until well combined.
  • Add the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt to the wet ingredients and whisk well to combine. Let stand 10 minutes to allow the flour to absorb the liquid.
  • Spray the waffle iron with cooking spray, and cook the waffles according to manufacturer's instructions.
  • Top the waffles with pure maple syrup and toasted pecans, if desired. Serve and enjoy!


  • I love using olive oil for flavor, but any oil will work well in this recipe.
  • I use canned organic sweet potato puree for this recipe most of the time, but it's easy to use fresh as well.  Simply bake or microwave a sweet potato until tender, scoop out the flesh and mash it well with a fork or puree until smooth.
  • My pumpkin pie spice or chai spice are a great substitute for the cinnamon!
  • Freeze leftover waffles for up to 3 months.
