Sweet Potato Oatmeal Bowl

Sweet Potato Oatmeal Bowl

This is a perfect weekend breakfast that the entire family can enjoy. The sweet potato gives this dish a nice sweet savory taste and a smooth texture that compliments the quick oats.  There are a number of options of toppings that you can use depending on what you have sitting in your pantry or fridge.  We prefer pecans, blueberries, diced apple and cacao nibs.

The sweet potato

To begin this recipe you will want to get started on those sweet potatoes first. First, begin preheating your oven to 425º while you lightly scrub the potatoes clean to make sure any remaining dirt is removed. Poke holes in the skin of the potatoes to allow steam to vent and quicken cooking. Place the potatoes on a foil lined baking sheet and put them in the oven and set a timer for 60 minutes. If you do not have 60 minutes to wait for the potatoes to finish cooking you can put the potatoes in the microwave on a microwave safe dish for 5 to 10 minutes. Either way you decide to cook your potatoes, you will know that they are done once you can easily pierce them with a fork. Take the potatoes out of the oven and remove the skins by scooping out the cooked flesh of the potato and mashing it with a potato masher until it is a smooth paste.

The oats

While your sweet potatoes are cooking, you can begin on your oatmeal. To make four servings of oatmeal, start by boiling 3 and 1/2 cups of water with a pinch of salt in a medium pot. Once boiling, add 1 and a 1/2 cups of rolled oats and cover with a tilted lid and reduce heat to a simmer. Let cook for 8 minutes for a creamy oatmeal. After the oatmeal is finished remove from the pot from the heat and add a 1/4 cup of brown sugar, we use organic coconut palm sugar, 2 tsp. of cinnamon,  1 tsp. of vanilla and 2 tbsp. of maple syrup.

Putting it all together

If you have time while the potatoes and oats are cooking, dice an apple, roughly chop a 1/4 cup of pecans and rinse a cup of blueberries. You can also add a 1/4 cup of cacao nibs for a healthy treat. Other options would be banana and walnuts. Finally, mix the finished sweet potato with the cooked oats. We like to then serve all of the toppings on the side for everyone to choose from.
