Let’s Make Some Sweet Potato Waffles!
Sweet Potato has always been one of my little guy’s favorite foods. I have a great recipe for Sweet Potato Bites that he loves but I wanted to find new ways to use Sweet Potato so I thought it would go great in a healthy waffle recipe! These are soft and easy for my little guy to chew and with only a few ingredients they are super easy to make. This recipe makes a large batch so you can save the extras in the freezer or cut the recipe in half to make a smaller amount.
Why Sweet Potato?
Sweet Potatoes are an incredibly nutritious food, I give it to my little guy pretty much anywhere I can. Sweet Potatoes are a great source of Vitamin A and Vitamin C, both of which are extremely beneficial for supporting the immune system. Sweet Potatoes also have a healthy amount of Manganese, a mineral that helps your body to produce collagen which is great for bone health.
Two Large Sweet Potatoes
