Flourless Savory Sweet Potato Waffles

  • Author: Katja from Savory Lotus
  • Yield: 3 waffles 1x


  • 1 tbsp ghee, butter, or coconut oil
  • 4 cups shredded sweet potato (about 2 medium sweet potatoes)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 12 cloves garlic (crushed) OR 1/4 tsp garlic powder (like this)
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • ghee, butter, or coconut oil for greasing the waffle maker


  1. Heat one tablespoon fat of choice in a skillet on medium heat.  Add sweet potatoes, salt and garlic.  Stir to combine.  Add 2 tablespoons of water and saute until sweet potato begins to soften – about 5-6 minutes. Be sure to stir often to ensure even cooking and to prevent sticking.
  2. Remove from heat and scrape into a large bowl. Preheat waffle maker.
  3. Once waffle maker is hot, add beaten eggs to cooked sweet potatoes.  Stir to thoroughly combine.
  4. Liberally brush melted fat on waffle maker. Spoon about 3/4 cup of the mixture onto hot waffle iron.  ( Each waffle maker will vary in size.) Press down gently on the mixture with the back of the measuring cup to spread it out a bit.  Cook until golden brown. Serve hot.


  • To freeze: freeze in single layer or separated by parchment paper.  Simply reheat gently in oven or toaster oven.
  • I’ve attempted this recipe without cooking the sweet potato first.  It does work, but I prefer the texture when I pre-cook it.  It also takes much longer to waffle it if the sweet potato is not cooked.
