These flourless, real food waffles have become a Sunday morning staple in our house! They can be savory, they can be sweet, they can be a vehicle for all of your breakfast dreams! 

We have been on a waffle kick in my house lately trying all sorts of different ways to magically turn vegetables into something well... more magical. And If I do say so myself this is by far one of my favorite ways to enjoy waffles!

 This recipe consists of two ingredients. Yes. You read that right....only TWO ingredients: sweet potatos and chia seeds! No flour, no added sugar, no gums.... just real stuff. real stuff that makes you feel all happy and tingly on the inside.

I love any recipe that is going to make me feel like I am indulging and will satisfy whatever nostaglic craving I am having in the moment.  

You can turn these delightful beauties sweet with fresh berries, maple, and coconut butter or go savory with avocado and bacon. I am telling you... the possibilities are endless. I may go a little bananas and throw some fried chicken on there if I am feeling fancy!

2 Ingredient Flourless Sweet Potato Waffles (Paleo, Vegan, Whole 30, CEP/AIP+ Reintroductions)

Prep Time  -  Cook Time  -  Total Time

  5 min            20 min          25 min        

Serves 1-2


1 sweet potato shreaded ( I used a cheese grater) 

2 Tbsp. ground chia seeds

6 Tbsp. filtered water 

couple pinches of salt


1. Grease your waffle iron with avocado oil or coconut oil and preheat. 

2. Add the ground chia seeds and water to a small bowl and mix together. 

3. Let the chia seed "egg" set for 5 minutes. 

4. Wash and grate the sweet potato 

5. Add the grated sweet potato and chia seed "egg together and mix well. 

6. Spoon your mixture into your waffle iron to cover the surface. (1 sweet potato makes 2 waffle squares or 1/2 full size waffle in my iron). 

7. Let cook until crispy ( My iron took about 15 minutes on medium low heat). Cook time will vary depending on your waffle iron. Be careful not to burn! 

***You may want to let the waffle sit in the iron for a few minutes before you get it out, but I have found when they cool a bit they stay together better!
