Whole Grain Oats and scrumptious Sweet Potato meet unsweetened Almond Milk and a touch of honey in these dairy-free, healthy and heart healthy breakfast waffles.
Oh, and these waffles are real good news for everyone who wants to feed oats to their family ... and family is not ready! Trust me, I have similar picky-eater in my home too who will always say "no" to oats but will readily say "yes" to Waffles!
This waffle recipe is also good news for early-morning-time-crunch-yet-need-healthy-breakfast team.
First off, the Oats and Sweet Potato waffle batter takes only 5 minutes time. (You can even ready it at night). Then, just 10 minutes in waffle iron and fragrance of waffles drags everyone to breakfast table. (Saves you form trouble of calling everybody too. )
Then, no matter who does not like oats... if anyone likes Warm Golden Waffle Dressed in Mapple Syrup and topped with sweet sliced bananas? The breakfast is "This is THE Best Breakfast Ever"!
I have been waiting to bring sweet potatoes to make some healthy and dairy-free Oats Waffle.. A carton of unsweetened natural Almondmilk from Blue Diamond Almond Breeze fueled my thought to try these waffles last weekend.
The beautiful thing about this almondmilk is that it is unsweetened, all natural and tastes absolutely delicious. Also, what sounds better than a heart healthy breakfast for your loved ones which is packed with beta-carotene from sweet potato, whole grain oats, and is also dairy-free? To me it sounds like an awesome morning meeting with "health".
Actually, in my husband needs a special reason to eat oats. I mean, the simple oats and milk is not for him. I often make Oats Porridge with Quinoa and that he adores. I was surprised when one day he asked me to buy some pre-packaged oats cereal for breakfast. I did bought few and made for him for breakfast.
After just one spoon, he was like - Which brand do you make earlier? This tastes nothing like the one you gave me with cranberries and almonds?
And I started laughing... This shows my dear husband that you need to step into kitchen sometimes because that was homemade Oats and Quinoa Porridge. lol!!
Likewise these Oats Waffles were well received and I did tell him these are Homemade ;)
Actually, oats once blended with Almond Milk and Sweet Potato became very soft and almost disappear in the batter once waffles are cooked..... Leaving behind a little nutty texture and scrumptious sweet potato flavor. Also, if little texture is not okay, fine quick oatmeal can be used instead of rolled oats.
To make it, I just begin with combining cooked sweet potato, rolled oats and other simple waffle ingredients. There is even no need to pre-puree the sweet potato since everything is blended using my trusty hand-blender (if in very hurry) or in stand blender. I let the mixture stand for 10 minute while the waffle iron heats up. This time is also good for granola to soak in some liquid. (You can even blend the mixture at nigh and then just thin it out a little before making waffles.)
Just pour a portions size per waffle-iron (pre heated) (1/3 cup mostly works for my Waffle Iron).
Then close the lid, let the waffle iron indicator turn green. And then I check. If I want to crisp-up waffles a bit, I continue for 1 more minute. My trusty way to know waffles are ready is when steam stops escaping from sides of waffle iron.
Oh, and I usually pre-heat the oven at 300 degree and pop up the cooked waffles in until I'm ready to serve. Honestly, waffles are best when served warm. A cold waffle is no good.
Once ready, just serve it up with your choice of toppings. I love sliced banana or a some stewed strawberries.
... and then serve any day of the year.. Specially if your family loves sweet potatoes and not so willing to eat oats. ;)
Hope that these Healthy Oats Waffle glowing with sweet potato hue will turn'em to Healthy Breakfast Lovers too!

Looking for vegan waffles? 1) Just use an egg substitute and rest everything is already vegan. Or 2) Replace eggs with 1/4 cup chia seeds soaked in 1/2 cup water and use 1/2 tsp baking powder.
