  • 1. Heat a Belgian waffle iron to medium high heat.
  • 2. Add oats to blender and blend until almost smooth.
  • 3. Add the rest of the ingredients to the blender and blend until just smooth.
  • 4. Put 1/2 tsp of coconut oil on the iron and flip it back and forth a few times to coat the iron in oil. Then scoop a 1/2 cup of batter to the middle of the waffle iron, close and flip. Let it cook for 5 minutes.

* You can substitute the oats with about 1 cup of oat flour.

** To make the cooked sweet potato, I simply peeled and chopped a small sweet potato and boiled it until tender, and drained.
