Cooking: GF sweet potato waffles

This is an alternative to the GF waffles I made previously; they use sweet potato to help give a better texture. They work surprising well!


This will make 6 waffles

  • 1x large sweet potato, roasted and mashed
  • ½ cup Gluten free self raising flour
    I used Doves Farm Gluten free white self raising flour for this – its a blend of rice, potato, tapioca, maize & buckwheat flours, combined with some raising agents and xanthan gum so it’ll hold its structure
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • 1tsp cinnamon
  • 1tsp nutmug
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • ½tsp salt
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1tbsp butter, melted



  1. The day before, roast the sweet potato at 180C / GM5 for ~hour. I insert a metal skewer through it to help cook the middle faster
    Leave to cool and then remove the skin
    Mash well and put in the fridge
  2. Pre-heat waffle maker at High
  3. Put all ingredients into a blender; blend well
  4. Cook for 2-3 minutes per waffle


End result

These worked better than the previous ones I made; the texture was much better and they felt more filling.

That said, they were quite high in calories so its definitely not something I’d have very often!
