Sweet potato breakfast bowls are a wholesome and delicious way to start the day. All you need is baked sweet potato and you’re ready to load it up with your favourite toppings!



  • 1/2 cup mashed sweet potato, 1 small whole baked sweet potato or half a large baked sweet potato

Topping Ideas

  • peanut butter, almond butter or other nut or seed butter of choice
  • almonds, walnuts, pecans or any other nut or seed
  • fresh berries or banana
  • dried fruit
  • granola or cereal


  1. Spread cooked, mashed sweet potato in a bowl or place one small whole baked or half of a medium to large baked sweet potato in a bowl.
  2. Top with peanut butter, berries, banana, coconut yogurt, cacao nibs, granola or another other toppings of choice.


This recipe is a guideline for your own sweet potato breakfast bowl creations! For ideas, think of what you’d add to oatmeal and go from there! You can also add savory toppings like black beans, salsa, vegan sour cream or tofu scramble.

The preparation time does not include baking the sweet potato. If you don’t have cooked sweet potato on hand, poke holes with a fork in a small, whole sweet potato or cut a medium-sized sweet potato in half and bake face down on a baking tray at 400 F until easily pierced with a fork. This can take anywhere from 30-45 minutes, depending on size. Follow these instructions on how to bake sweet potatoes for more details.

Nutrition facts are for a small sweet potato (200 g) and do not include toppings. Adjust accordingly.

Let cool before storing. Cooked sweet potato will keep in the fridge for 3-4 days. Whole or halved baked sweet potato can be frozen once cooled for up to 6 months. I’d recommend wrapping individually in foil then storing in a freezer safe bag or container. If prepping with toppings ready to grab for breakfast or snack, I’d suggest consuming within 3 days. Can be enjoyed cold or reheated in the microwave or oven, depending on the toppings you added.
