Sweet Potato Walnut Waffles

Submitted by: COVEREDNPRAYING

Introduction

I took a basic recipe off Recipezaar.com and tweaked it to make it healthier. Next time you are baking sweet potatoes for dinner, bake a couple of extra, peel them and put them in a zip top bag. Then mash around in the bag and treat your family to these delicious waffles. Great topped with unsweetened applesauce and sliced banana. If you don't have wheat germ, just add the extra 2 T. of white flour. If you don't have ground flax meal, just add 1 T. unsweetened applesauce. You can also use regular sugar in place of Sugar in the Raw. Healthy cooking doesn't have to mean difficult cooking, Please note that different waffle irons mean different yields. The orginial recipe yielded 12 waffles but my iron yielded 20. Keep that in mind when counting nutritional information. I took a basic recipe off Recipezaar.com and tweaked it to make it healthier.

Ingredients

    1 c. whole wheat flour
    1 c. MINUS 2 T. white flour
    2 T. wheat germ
    4 t. baking powder
    1/2 t. cinnamon
    1/2 t. ground cloves
    2 eggs, separated
    1 1/2 c. skim milk
    1 c. pureed cooked sweet potato
    1 T. olive oil
    1 T. unsweetened applesauce
    2 T. ground flaxseed meal
    1 T. Sugar in the Raw
    1/2 c. finely chopped walnuts

Directions

In a large bowl, mix flours, baking powder, wheat germ, and spices. In a separate bowl, mix eggs yolks, sweet potato, milk, oil, flax, and applesauce. Pour wet ingredients over dry and mix only until moistened. In an electric mixer beat egg whites with sugar until soft peaks form. Fold egg whites and walnuts into batter. Pour batter onto a heated, nonstick lightly greased waffle iron. Cook until golden brown or until iron stops steaming. This will depend on your iron but the flax will make these brown quicker than not, my iron takes about 3 1/2 minutes. These freeze well, lay in a single layer on a cookie sheet to flash freeze. When ready to eat microwave for 30 seconds then toast on a light setting.
