Blender Sweet Potato Waffles

Blender Sweet Potato Waffles are mixed entirely in the blender and are hearty and gluten free.

Sweet potatoes. Don’t you just love, love, love sweet potatoes?!

I’m forever looking to find ways to simplify breakfast and make it healthier (you, too??). While my absolute favourite waffle recipe will always be Fluffiest Waffles, sometimes I just don’t feel like busting out my electric mixer to whip egg whites, and a lot of times my body prefers to limit white flour and eat more gluten-free.

French Toast Fingers

French Toast Fingers are the ultimate breakfast finger food!

French Toast you can eat with your fingers! Rolled in a crunchy cinnamon sugar coating and ready to be dunked in maple syrup!

“Maresa!” my dad said the next time he saw me, “You’ve got to make French Toast Strips for your blog!” And my mom wholeheartedly agreed.

 

The rest is history. All credit goes to my parents for these French Toast Fingers. 😉

Now that we’ve reached the end of October here in the Pacific Northwest, the days have blurred together in endless shades of grey and drizzle. My rain boots are a constant fixture outside our front door, drying after the end of every day.

I used to dread this dismal season that lasts from October to February. But ever since J proposed to me on a damp, grey day in January, I’ve had second thoughts about rainy days. Rainy days just mean you need to be prepared – you need to put on your rain boots, a rain coat, grab an umbrella and head outside.
