YEP I SAID IT – Sweet Potato Toast! Can you tell I love sweet potatoes? Between my Breakfast Sweet Potat-“Oats” and my Caramelized Onion & Kale Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes, It seems I find a way to work them into this blog once a week!
A couple of weeks ago I woke up craving avocado toast and thought we had bread but WE DIDN’T! So sad. So I sliced up some taters, made my first sweet potato toast and posted it on my Instagram. I knew that it was an awesome idea and although it doesn’t really require a recipe, I had to share it with you! I decided to try it with a few topping options and loved all 3 so much.
Avocado was an obvious choice as it goes well on anything – especially sweet taters. So then I thought, what else do I love on toast? Well there were really only 2 other things. Almond Butter and Tuna! Not together. That would be a little scary. Unless I made the almond butter into some kind of thai dressing and tossed it with tuna…. mmmmm see how my brain works? YUM. These are PERFECTION for when I do a Whole30 or am trying to limit my grains!
I digress. Almond butter goes with banana and cinnamon and the tuna gets a kick from relish and red onion.
So here is how its done:
How to make Sweet Potato Toast:
Step 1: Slice sweet potato into toast like pieces (about 1/4 inch thick) and add to toaster.
Step 2: Toast TWICE! It took mine 2 rounds on high (could take 3-4 though!) in the toaster to cook through and result in this slightly browned “toast”. Here is the Cuisinart Toaster I have:
Step 3: TOP!
Topping options for Sweet Potato Toast:
Avocado Toast: Sliced avocado, salt, pepper & lemon zest.
Nut Butter: Almond Butter, banana slices and cinnamon!
Tuna! I added mayo, relish & red onion to mine but feel free to make it how you like it.
Nutrition for Sweet Potato Toast:
Sweet Potato Toast is a healthy, whole30 & grain free alternative to your favorite breakfast! Sweet potatoes are high in Vitamin A & C, much higher in these nutrients than White Potatoes are, so they are much more nutrient rich option! Vitamin A assists with eye health and Vitamin C with immunity! Eat sweet potatoes 2-3 times a week to reap the benefits!

Sweet Potato Toast: 3 Ways
To Make Sweet Potato Toast:
- Slice sweet potatoes lengthwise into 1/4 inch slices. Add to the toaster like you would bread and toast on high. It took me 2 rounds to get it cooked how I like with a little bit a browning on both sides.
- Remove skin from avocado and slice. Add to toast and sprinkle with salt, pepper and some lemon zest.
For Almond Butter:
- Spread some almond butter on toast and add sliced banana and a bit of cinnamon.
- I added 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon relish and 1 tablespoon of diced red onion to a small can of tuna. Scoop tuna onto toast!
