This easy, 5 ingredient, paleo and vegan friendly sweet potato breakfast bowl is a gluten free, whole30 compliant breakfast that is only 200 calories!
Sweet potatoes FOR BREAKFAST.
To some of you, this probably seems SUPER normal.
Oatmeal addict. Right here. Can’t Stop. Won’t Stop.
Actually. I did stop…when this sweet potato breakfast bowl stole my morning-person heart.
I actually first saw a bowl of sweet potatoes being eaten for breakfast on my friend, fitmittenkitchen’s, Instagram story and I was like WHAAAAA….not oatmeal for breakfast? Sweet potatoes? Do people DO THAT.
Apparently, they do.
Because they are smart and it’s delicious and mega addictive and totally nourishing. I just did not know this YET.
Do you ever see recipes that you are like “OH I WANNA TRY THAT” but you are kinda afraid to stray from your norm because WHAT IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT and experience FOOD DISAPPOINTMENT? It may only be one meal but, we’ve ALL been there, and it’s THE WORST.
This was what went through my brain when I pondered switching up the morning routine. Scary times my fellow internet food lovers.
But, obviously, I tried it.
YOU GUYS. Mashing up sweet potato with bursts of spicy cinnamon, juicy fresh fruit, creamy nut butter with a drizzle of sticky maple syrup and a sprinkling of crunchy sea salt is basically DEFINING the waking hours of my life right now. Liiiike, I even texted Mr. FFF declaring my forever-kinda-love for the newest breakfast obsession to enter the scene of my mouth.
He gets it. He knows I love him. Buuuut, I also really love food.
The thing that I think you’re really going to dig about these breakfast bowls of wholesome, nourishing BLISS is that they are SO customizable.
They’re so “up to you” that they’re not even REALLY a recipe, so I ALMOST did not post it. But, your hungry morning bellies NEED to be exposed to the delicious AND nutritious world that is sweet potatoes at the start of your day.
It’s PREEEEE much like a grown-up version of PB & J…except for BREAKFAST and with no bread.
SRSLY. This bowl is the kinda meal that gets you out of bed EXCITED to be ALIVE because FOOD.
I know you understand.
See, my friends, SO. CUSTOMIZABLE!
A breakfast bowl of “you do you” and “I’ll do me.”
And, we’ll be getting along JUST FINE.
Sweet Potato Breakfast Bowl
- 1 Large white sweet potato * (about 300g)
- Pinch of cinnamon
- 1 Cup Fresh raspberries, lightly packed
- 1/4 Cup Powdered peanut butter (see notes for whole30/paleo version)
- Pinch of flaky sea salt
- Maple syrup (optional)
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and line a small baking sheet with tinfoil. Place the sweet potato onto it and bake until fork tender, about an hour. Let sit until cool enough to touch.
Once cooled, peel the sweet potato and place it in a large bowl. Add in a pinch of cinnamon and mash. Divide between two bowls, and then divide the raspberries between each of the bowls as well.
Place the powdered peanut butter into a medium bowl and add a little bit of water, mixing until you reach your desired consistency (I like mine like a thick sauce.) Divide between the bowls.
Top each bowl with a pinch of sea salt and drizzle of maple syrup, if desired.
Use a fork to mash everything together and DEVOUR!
*Orange ones work too, I just like white!
For paleo/whole30 version:
Use 3 Tbsp total (1.5 Tbsp per bowl) of almond butter or cashew butter. Note that this will change nutritional information.
