Vegan Gluten Free Sweet Potato Waffles
This vegan gluten free sweet potato waffle recipe is a tasty treat you can share with all your friends. By using sweet potato, it is a great replacement for grains/flour. Sweet potato’s are packed with essential vitamins such as, beta carotene, vitamin C, and lots of fiber. Try this sweet recipe with your favorite toppings such as fresh fruits, nuts, and spices. I like to use coconut flakes as the complementary topping in my recipe.
