An Asian-Fusion Waffle recipe to spice up your weekend brunches. Perfect in the summer-time with some frozen blackberries.


  • Dry Ingredients
  • 1 cup flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 2 tablespoons matcha powder

  • Wet Ingredients
  • 1 cup mashed sweet potato, I used orange sweet potatoes

  • 1 cup almond milk

  • Flax Egg
  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal, I used Bob’s Red Mill golden flaxseed meal

  • 3 tablespoons room temperature water


  • Make a flax egg. Combine 1 tablespoon of flax seed meal and 3 tablespoons of water per flax egg you need. Let the flax egg stand at room temperature for 5 minutes before adding it to your waffle batter.
  • Mix the dry ingredients. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, matcha powder, and salt.
  • Add the wet ingredients. Add the mashed sweet potato and almond milk. Whisk well to combine. Finally add the flax egg and whisk until the batter is homogenous and smooth.
  • Make the waffles. Heat up the waffle iron on medium-high heat and brush both the top and the bottom with vegetable oil. Add in the batter one ladle at a time (be careful not to overfill the waffle iron!) and cook until crispy and fluffy, around 2 minutes. Carefully remove the cooked waffle and repeat until there is no batter left.


  • I used orange sweet potatoes, but I’ve tested several different types of sweet potatoes and they all work for this recipe. Taro also works great as well, but be sure to add some extra sugar/sweetener since taro by itself is not as sweet.
