sweet potato puree waffles

Basically, a healthier version of a classic.
We love breakfast for dinner. I feel like with my 3rd child, who eats nothing, that when she eats something I gotta make it count. So, we needed a breakfast for dinner/ nutritious something...and here it is adapted from several others I found on the net.
These are so good and you can't taste the "health" in them at all. My new favorite for all times of the day.
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup white flour
4 tsp. baking powder
1/2-3/4 tsp. cinnamon
2 eggs
1 1/2 c skim milk
3/4 cup pureed veggies. (I used 3 sweet potatoes and 2 carrots, it was just about 3/4 cup)
3 T. oil
1 T. orange juice concentrate or 1 tsp. rind. (I don't love rind in things so I did concentrate)
*3 splenda packets (optional)

1. mix the dry ingredients
2. mix the wet
3. combine with wet with the dry.

Cook on a hot waffle iron sprayed with Pam.
Serve with homemade maple syrup.

3 cups water
3 cups sugar
1/4-1/2 cup brown sugar
Bring all to a boil.
Simmer for about 15 minutes. Add 1 tsp. maple and 1 tsp. vanilla

This is a sugar less version of traditional maple syrup and my family loves it and doesn't miss all the sugar of the regular.
