Easy gluten free sweet potato waffles

I realise that I over-promised and under-delivered waffle recipes galore when I first purchased my waffle maker. The struggle with waffles, though, is that I'm generally so ravenous when I wake up that spending 20 minutes making breakfast just isn't feasible. The next issue, then, is whether second breakfast is a good idea for 10 days in a row. The answer, as provided by my waistline, is no.

However, fear not, because you have three options here: 1) suck it up and spend 20 minutes getting breakfast sorted 2) eat waffles for lunch/dinner instead or 3) (my personal favourite) have breakfast while you are making your breakfast waffles. Crisis averted.

INGREDIENTS - makes four waffles 

1 cup of sweet potato puree (I steamed half a large sweet potato, skin off, and then mashed it)

1 cup milk
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 tablespoons maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter

METHOD

1. V V simple. Chuck all your ingredients into a bowl and mix them up until a light orange batter has formed. Use your waffle maker according to the instructions. I spray mine with some olive oil before using, and generally take them out a little bit before the machine dictates that they are ready.
