Are sweet potatoes good for breakfast?
SWEET POTATOES FOR BREAKFAST.
For some of you, this probably seems SUPER normal.
But I'm the girl who started the day with biscuit dough overnight oats or an oatmeal recipe with blueberry cheesecake. Single. Day for 3 years! NO LIES.
Oatmeal dependent. Exactly here. Can not stop. Will not stop.
Indeed. I stopped … when this sweet potato breakfast bowl stole my heart for the morning man.
I actually actually saw for the first time a bowl of sweet potatoes for breakfast on my friend's Instagram story, fitmittenkitchen, and I was like WHAAAAA … not oatmeal for breakfast? Sweet potatoes? Do people do that?
Yes, yes, they do.
What do you eat for breakfast on Whole30?
Deciding to follow a diet or strict diet can sometimes feel daunting. You may be wondering how to imagine meal and snack ideas that meet the right requirements and can sometimes feel stressful! Whole30 is a type of food that contains a variety of foods and flavors to create delicious and nutritious meals for you and your family. For a just whole 30 breakfast, here are a few meals that I recommend:
How to cook sweet potatoes
Sweet potatoes are seriously a FAVE of mine and a staple in my kitchen. I love that they taste great, can be cooked in different ways and can be incorporated into so many different meals! It must be one of my FAVORITE ingredients that I can cook with. You can even throw them in a dessert like Gluten-free sweet potato cake bars. Do you understand what I mean? SO versatile! There are also several ways to cook and enjoy sweet potatoes, as in THIS whole 30 breakfast bowl and many others. Here are some ways to cook them:
- Crock pot sweet potatoes are easy to prepare and deliver EVERY perfectly tender sweet potato. SINGLE. TIME. I love this method because you can't screw it up!
- Baked: Throw them in the oven and let them roast whole or in bite-size pieces.
- Cooked: cook and puree them for a delicious sweet potato bake!
- Microwave: If you run out of time and want to cook your sweet potatoes QUICKLY, put them in the microwave and they will be soft and soft in no time!
Paleo Sweet Potato breakfast bowl toppings
One of the BEST things about a meal in a bowl, breakfast or any other way is the TOPPINGS – I'm all about them. There are endless possibilities for toppings for this delicious bowl. So get creative! Here are some ideas:
- Fresh fruit: berries taste great in these breakfast bowls, and I recommend raspberries, strawberries, blackberries and / or blueberries!
- Nut Butter: This recipe uses peanut butter powder and water to make your own delicious sauce. However, you can easily replace another type of nut butter! I would try almond, cashew or natural peanut butter – you can't go wrong with a dash of this nut butter!
- Sweeteners: You may have noticed that this recipe says that a dash of maple syrup is optional – and it is, but I think it adds so much! You can also pass on the maple syrup and drizzle your breakfast bowl with agave nectar or liquid honey instead.

Apparently they do.
Because they are smart and delicious, super addicting and totally nutritious. I just didn't know that yet.
Do you ever see recipes that are like "OH I WANT TO TRY" but you're afraid to deviate from your norm because WHAT IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT and EAT DISAPPOINTMENT? It may only be a meal, but we were ALL there and it is THE WORST.
This went through my head as I considered changing my morning routine to this sweet potato peel. Scary times my internet food lover.
But of course I tried.
THEIR. Crushing sweet potatoes with spicy cinnamon, juicy fresh fruits, creamy nut butter with a dash of sticky maple syrup and a pinch of crispy sea salt basically defines the waking hours of my life. Liiiike, I even sent a text message to Mr. FFF declaring my eternal love for the latest breakfast obsession to enter the scene of my mouth.

He gets it. He knows that I love him. Buuuut, I also love food.
I think you'll really dig on those breakfast bowls with healthy, nutritious BLISS because they're so customizable.
They are so "up to you" that they are not REALLY a recipe, so I almost never posted it. But your hungry morning bellies MUST be exposed to the delicious AND nutritious world that is sweet potato at the start of your day.
I prefer to eat them with raspberries and peanut butter powder, mixed with water, a dash of maple syrup and a pinch of flaky sea salt. <- HELLO SALTY SWEET PERFECTION.
This recipe for a sweet potato breakfast is PREEEEE, similar to an adult version of PB & J … except for BREAKFAST and without bread.

SRSLY. This bowl is the kind of meal that gets you out of bed. EXCITING because FOOD is ALIVE.
I know you understand
But maybe PB and J are not your thing. Maybe you want to add a little banana and peanut butter … maybe with cocoa nibs?
Or maybe you're following the paleo diet, so you want to use almond butter?
OR, maybe you are SOSOSOSOS who are bored for breakfast all over your body30 for breakfast, so you don't want to use almond butter and that little splash of maple.
See, my friends, SO. CUSTOMIZABLE!
A breakfast bowl with "You make yourself" and "I make myself".

This simple, paleo and vegan friendly sweet potato breakfast bowl with 5 ingredients is a gluten-free, 30-compliant breakfast with only 200 calories!
total time 1 hour 5 protocol
- 1 Large white sweet potato * (about 300 g)
- A pinch of cinnamon
- 1 Cup Fresh raspberries, lightly packaged
- 1/4 Cup Peanut butter powder (see notes for the whole 30 / paleo version)
- Pinch of flaky sea salt
- Maple syrup (Optional)
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and line a small baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place the sweet potato on top and bake for about an hour until the fork is soft. Let it sit until it is cool enough to touch.
After cooling, peel the sweet potato and put it in a large bowl. Add a pinch of cinnamon and porridge. Divide between two bowls and then the raspberries between the bowls.
Put the powdered peanut butter in a medium bowl and add a little water. Mix until you get the consistency you want (I like mine like a thick sauce). Spread them between the bowls.
Top each bowl with a pinch of sea salt and a dash of maple syrup if desired.
Use a fork to crush everything and DEVELOP!
* Orange works too, I only like white!
For Paleo / Whole30 version:
Use a total of 3 tablespoons (1.5 tablespoons per bowl) of almond butter or cashew butter. Note that this changes the nutritional information.
