Blueberry Sweet Potato Waffles

Blueberry Sweet Potato Waffles

If you follow us on Instagram, you know I’m having a serious love affair right now with my waffle maker. Then if you throw in the fact that we’re occupying the space when the last of summer’s local blueberries can be found in the grocery stores (or my very own freezer) alongside sweet potatoes and pumpkins, you’ll find yourself with this latest post about my Blueberry Sweet Potato Waffles. A food pairing of blueberries and sweet potato does seem to be as wrong as your white skirt with a velvet blazer but it’s not. In fact, these two cats are more like peanut butter and jelly, but better. Well, obviously, they’re better since they’re together in a waffle.

    Would it be possible to use whole wheat or all=purpose flour instead of the spelt flour?
    What is the advantage of using spelt flour?

      Hi Lyn,

      Thank you for your note. You can absolutely sub spelt flour for ap flour. You don’t have to adjust the ratio. And we use spelt since it has a bit less gluten than whole wheat or white as we have some sensitivity in our household. Hope this helps.
