Sweet Potato Waffles

Makes 4 waffles

These delicious golden waffles will be a hit with everyone.

2 cups rolled oats
2 1/2 cups water
1 cup cooked sweet potato or yam (about 2 medium sweet potatoes)
1 ripe banana
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon sodium-free baking powder
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 vegetable oil spray

Place oats, water, sweet potato or yam, banana, syrup, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and vanilla into blender and blend until completely smooth. Preheat a waffle iron and spray it with vegetable oil spray. Spread with a layer of batter, then cook for 8 to 10 minutes without lifting the lid. The cooking time may vary slightly with different waffle irons.

Note: The batter should be pourable. If it becomes too thick as it stands, add a bit more water to achieve the desired consistency.
