Buckwheat Sweet Potato Waffles
I have been wanting to switch things up for breakfast as I find myself sticking with the same options every day which usually consist of overnight oats or smoothies. Lately I have been feeling like a more savoury breakfast! So I experimented with my new buckwheat flour and came up with these savoury sprouted buckwheat sweet potato waffles. Sprouted buckwheat flour is easier on the stomach for digestion and is a great gluten free flour option! It is great for baking, and for making waffles and pancakes!
These waffles are definitely my new favourite breakfast go-to! My trick is I make a large batch of waffles and I freeze the leftovers. I place the leftover waffles individually in ziplock bags and then I freeze them for later! When I pull out the waffles from the freezer I let them thaw and then I stick them in the toaster! This is the perfect way to make the waffles fresh and crispy!
I then love to top them with avocado slices and fried eggs with green onions and everything bagel seasoning. Another one of my favourite toppings is bruschetta mix with avocado, salt, pepper, balsamic glaze and parmesan cheese.
When making waffles it is very important to put enough oil on the waffle iron to prevent the waffles from sticking. To keep the waffles fresh and hot, I always turn on the oven when I start making the waffles and then place the cooked waffles in the oven to keep hot until all of the waffles have been cooked. Keeping the oven on higher heat will keep them hot and crispy.
