Babes on a Budget: Sweet Potato Breakfast Bowl.

Ok I’m going to say something that I feel like is going to make people like, gasp and then hate me a little…

recipe, healthy, health, healthy recipe, gluten free, dairy free, breakfast

but oatmeal totally does not fill me up and I literally will be hungry 2 hours later. What is wrong with me, guys?! I’ve tried adding nut butter, protein powder, chia seeds, flax, you name it I’ve done it. And for some reason, without fail, my stomach will be growling by 11am. So, I’ve recently turned to other (inexpensive) means of filling up before busy days at the office and it includes some of my absolute favorite foods: sweet potatoes, peanut butter, bananas and dates. I topped it with granola too, for a little extra crunch & sweetness! I definitely recommend coconut granola, or just coconut flakes/shavings – the flavor combo is INSANE.

The best part about this recipe is that is super low effort, kind of like overnight oats but just slightly more prep. You just boil a pot of water, peel and cut a sweet potato into 1/2 inch (-ish) chunks, boil for about 15 minutes and then you’re good to go. You can mash the potato in the pot, or another bowl, or a tupperware if you want to save it for the next day in the fridge. Then you simple toss in the other ingredients and poof. Done. Easy peasy.

Sweet Potato Breakfast Bowls

1 medium sweet potato

1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

1 banana, sliced

1 -2 dates, chopped

1 tbsp peanut butter (drippy is better, so I’d go for all-natural!)

1/4 cup granola (I used KIND Oats & Honey Clusters w/Toasted Coconut)

*if gluten-free, just leave off the granola or choose a gluten-free variety!

1. Fill a medium-sized pot 2/3 of the way with water and bring to a boil. While the water is heating up, peel and cut a sweet potato into 1/2 inch or so chunks. Drop into water once boiling and cook for about 15 minutes or until soft when poked with a fork.

2. Drain the sweet potatoes and mash with a fork either in the pot or another bowl. Add in the almond milk to make it creamier and stir until combined.

3. Top with banana, dates, granola and peanut butter if eating right away, or keep in the fridge for up to 3 days in an airtight container. Enjoy!

I find that overnight oats fill me up a little more when I can fluff them up with some yogurt and all the toppings. I loveee sweet potato bowls too – plus extra servings of veggies at breakfast!

Yes!! Yogurt for sure helps, and makes it so creamy!! Kind of forgot about that actually, thank you for reminding me 🙂

Right?! Like I know granola isn’t the healthiest thing ever, but it’s so worth it!

Love this! Honestly, oats never fill me up either!!! I actually consider them a “light breakfast” haha. But I’m kind of a sweet potato addict so this sounds amazing.

[…] okay, so I know this recipe is kind of contradictory to my last one in which I claimed that oatmeal doesn’t actually fill me up…however! This one did […]
