Breakfast Sweet Potat-“Oats”

Need a Grain free breakfast option that isn't eggs? These Breakfast Sweet Potat-"Oats" are the perfect Whole30 & Paleo option to mix up your breakfast routine!

Are you ready for the world as you know it to get ROCKED?

I promise it’s for the good!  But first I have a confession to make.  I kind of miss oats.  I don’t miss getting hungry again 2 hours later… but I miss eating something warm and cinnamony in the morning!  Don’t get me wrong… I still love my eggs and chicken sausage most days.  BUT after making these babies I am so excited to mix it up!!  I was walking with Matt last weekend and telling him about my idea and about what to call them and he said “SWEET POTAT-OATS!”  It was brilliant.  And again – this is why I married the guy.  Let’s break the internet shall we?

I love sweet potatoes in every form but sweet is one of the best!  Adding cinnamon was a must as it reminds me of my oat days, and adding banana was a no brainer as I also used to add it to my oats as a natural sweetener!  Make sure those bananas are nice and brown for this so they can bring the dish lots of sweetness.  The best part about this recipe is the TOPPINGS!  I loved adding sliced banana, walnuts and a drizzle of almond butter… partially because it made the photos super drool worthy, and partially because I put AB on just about everything to make it better.  If you are staying away from grains or just want to mix up your regular breakfast routine… try this recipe out STAT!  OH- and I also made a fun video of recipe for you to gander at below!

Breakfast Sweet Potat-“Oats”

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sweet potat-"oats" (directions below)
  • 1/3 cup crushed ripe banana (about 1 medium banana)
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • Top with: banana, walnuts and/or almond butter

Directions

In a small bowl combine sweet potat-"oats", banana, almond milk, cinnamon and salt. Microwave for about 3 minutes or until cooked. I topped mine with sliced banana, walnuts and a drizzle of almond butter!

*To make Sweet Potat-"Oats":

Peel 1 sweet potato and run it through the shredder attachment on a food processor. Then add the blade attachment and pulse for a few seconds just until sweet potato resembles the size of oats! Use 1 cup of these "oats" for the recipe.

    Looks amazing! Can’t wait to try this! To clarify – the sweet potato only gets microwaved, it is not cooked in any other way?

    This is hands down the best Whole 30 meal I’ve had in my 26 days (and counting). I put a poached egg on top with a little Himalayan Sea Salt and it’s DELICIOUS!

    Oh my gosh, you’re the first person I’ve seen to eat things like this too. My go-to now is to roast a butternut squash, scoop out the flesh into containers, and eat it topped with nuts, berries, cinnamon, paleo granola, bananas – whatever is on hand like that. In the summer it’s tasty cool, in the winter, it’s nice heated up like porridge. It’s great to roast it on Sunday and have it the rest of the week for breakfast (sometimes need to freeze). Maybe that will also be an interesting option for those who like you sweet potat-oats 🙂

    I wanna bring this to work tomorrow for breakfast. Could I mix it at home tonight, put it in the fridge, and then heat it at work? Then put the toppings? Would it break down or be okay?

      I’m pretty sure it would be fine!! Sweet potatoes hold their shape well before being cooked! Let me know how it works out!!

    Tried this tonight, and thankfully have some leftover “oats” for tomorrow for breakfast!! Loved trying this new thing and it did have a similar consistency to oatmeal! Thank you for the awesome recipe! 🙂
