Start your day right with these healthy paleo sweet potato waffles! This recipe is jam-packed with deliciousness! I’ve discovered it by accident while experimenting in the kitchen. I was actually looking for some new breakfast ideas to surprise my kids. These sweet potato waffles are perfect for those who exercise in the morning or need lasting energy for a hard day at work.
Rich in vitamins and antioxidants, this hearty breakfast will fuel your body first thing in the morning. It’s free of grains, flour, and dairy, and has just the right amount of sweetness. I use coconut flour because it’s high in fiber and protein, and doesn’t contain gluten or inflammatory agents. It also tastes much better than almond flour.
Sweet potatoes, the main ingredient in this paleo waffle recipe, are a great source of beta carotene. Over serving provides over 377 percent of the RDA of vitamin A, 15 percent of the RDA of vitamin B6, eight percent of the RDA of magnesium, and five percent of the RDA of calcium. The antioxidants in sweet potatoes neutralize free radicals, improve eyesight, and protect your skin from harmful UV rays.
These tasty paleo waffles also contain eggs, which are rich in protein. Cinnamon, another key ingredient, raises your metabolism and helps prevents blood sugar spikes. I’ve recently read that cinnamon relieves IBS symptoms, eases arthritis pain, and enhances memory. Its fat burning effects are backed up by science.
