Sweet Potato Waffles:

 Makes about 6 waffles

  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 can (13- or 14-ounce) coconut milk
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 1/4 cups pureed sweet potatoes (or pumpkin, or other winter squash)

In one bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, powder, salt, ginger, orange zest, and sugar. In a large bowl, whisk together the melted butter, eggs, coconut milk, water and pureed sweet potatoes. Then, stir in the dry ingredients just until smooth.  Follow your waffle iron's direction for making a waffle and cook until crispy (about 5 minutes) or make into pancakes.
