this sweet potato breakfast bowl has become my new version of oatmeal. it’s paleo and is the perfect sweet fix for a hearty breakfast.
it starts with a base of baked mashed sweet potatoes [photo], and there i add in cinnamon and sometimes water, depending if the sweet potato mash needs to be smoother.
on top, i add the following: almond butter, maca powder, flaxseed meal, shredded unsweetened coconut, blueberries, and sliced bananas! any other toppings or supplements are welcome.

HOW TO MAKE IT ››
- to make the mashed sweet potato, set the oven to ~400. properly wash the sweet potato + stab with fork to allow holes for air to escape. bake the sweet potato for ~1hr, or until fork goes in easily. after removing the SP from the oven, allow sufficient time to cool before mashing! (it’ll be v steamy and hot for your hands). once cooled, mash the sweet potato with a fork, while adding sprinkles of ground cinnamon to your liking. if SP mash needs to be smoother, add a bit of water & mix. the sweet potato mash can be stored like this if you want to use it days later, but keep it in the fridge, and not for longer than a week!
- when you’re ready to build your bowl, start with 1/3-1/2 cup sweet potato/cinnamon mixture in a bowl. heat for ~1min in microwave.
- add the toppings you prefer: i go with almond butter drizzle, maca + flax, shredded unsweetened coconut, and fresh blueberries and banana.
- great to take & eat on the go!
