Sweet Potato-Cocoa Waffles

Sweet Potato Cocoa Waffles

Sweet potato cocoa waffles make a wonderful breakfast. When you add some cocoa and you have incredibly tasty waffles.

With Stone Sour in my ears, I am ready to share a recipe for these delicious waffles.

One morning last week upon my waking, I could virtually taste the waffles. Maybe I was dreaming about them or something, cannot remember, but I have issues with cravings. When I crave it, I set out to make it.

See, I had this thought of making sweet potato waffles and here they are. I made 3 times before making a video with my baby boy, Daniel.

He had an idea to add cocoa, and I am so happy that he suggested because it gave these waffles another level of flavor.

These waffles are sweet, delicious and perfect any time of day. We had them for dinner, too, with different spreads laying around the table.

Isn’t breakfast for dinner the best idea? We do that often, actually. When it comes to waffles, I think the sky’s the limit.

We can add so many amazing veggies to boost them up; Carrots, potatoes, beets, etc., or make them plain, chocolate, savory or sweet.


We are still doing kitchen adjustments and I really cannot wait until everything is done. If you are subscribed to my blog, you already know how it looks.

I like sharing my thoughts and sometimes pictures that I don’t share here on my blog with my subscribers. Pretty soon, I will share it on my blog as well, so no worries! Now, let’s get back to the recipe.
