Sweet potatoes for breakfast are so underrated. This is a vitamin and fiber-packed breakfast. It is so good. It has become one of my favorites. This is an absolute must-try. You can sub the apples for berries or the peanut butter for another nut butter. It is really versatile, filling, and oh so yummy.
You want to set your day up right with the nutrients your body needs after hopefully 12 hours of not eating. This breakfast contains the fiber to fill you, protein, vitamins, and healthy fats to keep you satisfied.
2 small sweet potatoes or one large sweet potato
2 small apples, diced
¼ cups water
1T maple syrup
½ tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp ginger powder
2T peanut butter
Preheat oven to 400°
Add some slits in your potato to allow steam to escape. Bake for 30-45 minutes, depending on the size of your potato(es).
In a saucepan on medium-low heat, cook your diced apples, water, maple syrup, cinnamon, and ginger until the apples are softened, about 10 minutes.
Once your potatoes are done, cut them in half. Plate up your sweet potato.
*Depending on the size of your potato will decide if you take half or a whole. You want about a half cup worth of potato.
Top your sweet potato with some of the apple mixture. Drizzle on a tablespoon of peanut butter on each serving.
You can drizzle with a touch more maple syrup and cinnamon if desired.
This should fill you up for hours and give you plenty of energy.
