Sweet Potato Oatmeal

Posted on

It is getting warmer out and I’m sure many of you will soon switch from oatmeal to something lighter – smoothies, yogurt, etc but if you haven’t done so already, I have a recipe for you! I like sweet potatoes because of their “sweet” side. Go figure. Mixing sweet potato into my oatmeal really made it naturally sweet. The only bad part about the recipe is having the time to bake the potato, which depending upon its’ size takes 30 to 45 minutes. After that, you are golden!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 of a small sweet potato, baked
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1 tsp flax seeds
  • 1 Tbsp chopped almonds or nut of choice
  • sprinkle of brown sugar

Directions

  1. Bake sweet potato until tender – 350F for 30 to 45 minutes
  2. Peel skin and cut in half. Chop into small pieces
  3. In sauce pan, place oats, sweet potato and milk on medium heat
  4. Stir well to mix all ingredients
  5. Cook until oats are softened – 3 minutes
  6. Sprinkle with brown sugar
  7. ENJOY!
