Sweet Potato Waffles

I love making a big batch of waffles on the weekend. It just feels like a 'special' breakfast and the best part is that they freeze so well, they make a great quick breakfast or snack during the week. This morning, I was sneaky and tucked a little sweet potato into the batter. The kids didn't even notice. It gives it just a touch of extra flavor. I hope you enjoy!

3 1/2 c whole wheat flour
2 T sugar
2 T brown sugar
2 T baking powder
1/2 t cinnamon
4 eggs
1 3/4 c milk 
1 3/4 c water
1/2 c pureed sweet potatoes (boiled or baked and mashed OR you can cheat like I do and use a jar of baby food!)
1/2 cup oil or melted butter
2 t vanilla

Mix together dry ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk together wet ingredients in another bowl. Add egg mixture to dry ingredients and stir just until moistened. Pour batter into lightly-oiled waffle iron and bake until done.

As they are done, I transfer them either to the oven to stay warm for serving or to racks to cool if freezing. This recipe made enough for us to feed 3 adults, 3 children and still have 2 gallon size ziploc bags full of waffles for future meals! They reheat well in the microwave or toaster. Enjoy!
