Sweet Potato Waffles

I LOVE sweet potatoes and find myself mixing them into just about ANYTHING... mac & cheese, spaghetti sauce, ect.  I really think it is one of the GREATEST most FLAVORFUL vegetables out there and I love the fact that it is SWEET.  When I found this recipe on, I was SUPER excited!  It seriously made the BEST waffles and reminded me, a lot, like pumpkin waffles.  This recipe made probably about 6 full sized round waffles which meant I had some leftovers on hand, SCORE!  I froze what was leftover and for my son's breakfast each morning, I put 2 sections in the microwave for about 30 seconds, then pop them right into the toaster.  Who needs Eggos anymore when you have these sweet, delicious and nutritious waffles on hand? 



1 C whole wheat flour
1 C white flour
4 t baking powder
1 t cinnamon
1/4 t clove
1/4 t nutmeg
2 eggs, separated
1 1/2 C milk

In a separate bowl, mix egg yolks, milk, sweet potato and oil (wet ingredients).
Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients; stir until moistened.
Beat egg whites with mixer until soft peaks form; add sugar until stiff peaks form.
Fold egg white mixture into the rest of the batter.  
Pour mixture into waffle maker and you are done!
