Sweet Potato Pecan Waffles with Praline Peaches
nourishing waffles!
1/2 cup finely chopped, toasted pecans, divided
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 can (15 ounces) sweet potatoes or yams in light syrup, not drained
1/2 cup 2% milk
2 cups buttermilk waffle mix
2 large eggs, separated
2 cans (15 ounces each) sliced peaches in light syrup, or sliced peaches in juice, not drained
1 tablespoon honey
Non-stick spray oil


Heat a medium skillet over medium heat for 1 minute. Add 2 tablespoons chopped pecans and brown sugar. Stir until sugar melts and coats the nuts; be careful that they do not burn; set aside.

Purée sweet potatoes (with their syrup) and milk in a blender until smooth; set aside.

Preheat a non-stick waffle iron. Mix waffle mix, sweet-potato mixture and egg yolks in a large bowl until well combined. Stir in the remaining, uncooked pecans; set aside.

Beat egg whites in a clean bowl with a whisk until they hold a firm shape, and fold into the waffle batter; set aside for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, strain juice from peaches into a large skillet. Stir in honey and boil over high heat until lightly thickened, about 5 minutes, stirring often. Stir in peaches and reserved sugar-glazed pecans; keep warm.

Lightly coat the interior of the preheated waffle iron with spray oil. Pour about 1/3 of batter onto the hot waffle iron and cook until puffed, brown and crisp, according to manufacturer’s directions. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve immediately with peach topping.
