  • Waffle maker


  • 4 cups sweet potato raw, about 2-3 sweet potatoes
  • 3 eggs
  • salt to taste
  • spray cooking oil or olive oil


  • Peel and grate sweet potatoes.
  • Use a cheesecloth and drain the excess water VERY well. Add egg and salt, mix well with the fork.
  • Spray waffle maker with cooking oil or grease with olive oil. Pour the batter into the waffle maker. (See Notes for amount.) Each waffle will take about 5 minutes to cook through. 


  • Batter amount: For a mini waffle maker, use about 1/3 cup of batter. For a full-sized waffle maker, use about 1 cup.
  • Draining notes: Make sure to drain the sweet potatoes EXTREMELY well or the texture of the batter will be too soft.
  • Topping suggestions: For sweet, you can top with butter and syrup or add a dash of cinnamon to the batter. For a more savory waffle, try a dollop of sour cream.
