What others are saying
Erin Rettke says:
Wasn't a big fan of the flavor balance or texture. I followed the recipe to the t but was sadly disappointed. I'd recommend a dash of salt and using small blueberries. Also, be sure that your sweet potato noodles are super cooked before mixing in the egg and vanilla!
Sam Dalton says:
These reminded me of sweet potato hash browns with blueberries, in the shape of a waffle. With that said, it was really good and I will definitely make again. I don't have to feel bad about feeding these to my kids because it's healthier than store bought frozen waffles.
Jessica Scott says:
These waffles are so good, I've made them twice already! Once with blueberries, and again with chocolate chips. Maybe next time I'll try them with banana?! Yum!
Greg Jones says:
This recipe was pretty good! I used frozen blueberries instead of fresh and had no problems. Next time I will try doubling the recipe to make more. Sweet potatoes are so versatile and this was a cool idea!
Alexis Pearson says:
I've had sweet potato waffles before, but this was my first time trying it with spiralized sweet potatoes. Not bad! I used frozen wild blueberries and they worked out nicely.
