Savory Sweet Potato Waffles

Sweet potato waffles are the ultimate way to capture the light and crisp texture of regular waffles without added sugar or gluten. The sugars in the sweet potato get lightly caramelized to create a savory, crusty base for all your favorite toppings. And it gets better: This waffle is loaded with collagen peptides for a punch of gut-nourishing, skin-smoothing protein.

Waffle makers aren’t just for waffles anymore — you can use them to cook anything from omelettes to bacon. Sweet potato waffles are just one more paleo-friendly way to get more out of your waffle maker. Make them breakfast-ready with avocado slices and fried eggs, or load them up with grass-fed ghee and strawberry jam. Use them as a naan substitute for fish curry, or as sandwich bread for a hearty BLT. Make them sweet or savory — the possibilities are endless.

No matter how you stack them, sweet potato waffles make the perfect paleo breakfast or keto carb refeed.

Light, crisp, and full of flavor: Sweet potato waffles make the perfect base for sweet or savory toppings (breakfast time or anytime).

Notes on ingredients: All peppers are considered suspect on the Bulletproof Diet, and highly susceptible to performance-robbing mold toxins. To reduce your risk, omit pepper and/or grind black pepper fresh using high-quality whole peppercorns. Garlic is in the suspect category of the Bulletproof Diet, because it inhibits alpha brain waves and could affect your mood – and depending on where you get it, could be moldy. For that reason, it’s not recommended that you eat garlic often.
