Why It's Good For You:

What's not to love about sweet potatoes?! They are loaded with beta-carotene, which your body converts to an active form of vitamin A as needed. They're rich in vitamin C, manganese, copper, pantothenic acid and vitamin B6. Additionally, they're a good source of potassium, niacin, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, phosphorus, and dietary fiber. The almond flour and eggs add an extra punch of protein, while the coconut oil adds a touch of good fat. These gluten-free, grain-free waffles will be a new freezer favorite.

  4. Blend until smooth.
  5. Add all the dry ingredients in the food processor and blend until incorporated.
