Sweet Potato Waffles with Avocado and Rocket

Serve up these sweet potato waffles for the ultimate Saturday brunch spread. Simply delicious topped with avocado and rocket, and just a hint of lime. 


200 g cold cooked sweet potatoes
150 g gluten-free flour
2 tsp baking powder
Pinch salt
2 tsp cumin
4 Tbsp Gram flour mixed with 4 tbsp water
350 mL almond drink
2 Tbsp coconut oil
4 tsp nigella seeds
1 avocado
1 lime
2 handful of rocket 


  1. Peel and mash the sweet potato until smooth. Sift the flour, cumin, salt and baking powder into a mixing bowl.
  2. Whisk together the gram flour and almond drink. Gradually whisk the wet ingredients into the dry until you have a smooth batter.
  3. Grease a waffle iron liberally with coconut oil, sprinkle in a little of the nigella seeds and heat until hot. Cook the batter in batches until all the batter is used up, keeping the waffles warm as you go.
  4. Peel and slice the avocado, top the waffles with sliced avocado and rocket, serve with a couple of lime wedges on the side to squeeze over.
