Healthy Sweet Potato and Oats Waffles

This recipe is a sweet, healthy and nutritious. They are made from a whole food source of carbohydrates: sweet potatoes; protein from the eggs bumps up the nutrient density; they’re rich in vitamins and minerals (unlike most gluten-free flours and pancake mixes); they come together pretty easily – and unlike regular waffles, these are pretty filling. Best item to start off the day for children, and takes no time at all.
