Sweet Potato Breakfast Bowl Recipe

Tired of the same old things for breakfast?  Looking for a delicious, easy, quick and healthy breakfast, or after-workout snack?  Try this Sweet Potato Breakfast Bowl!

If you and your family have a sweet tooth and love sweet potato casserole, you’re going to love this Sweet Potato Breakfast Bowl.  It’s so good, you might even find your kids asking for it for dessert. This is the perfect “make ahead” breakfast, or post-exercise mini-meal.   You can serve it cold, or warm(my preference)  as welcome alternative to oatmeal.  And it’s so much healthier than those individually packaged cups of oatmeal!

Sweet Potato Paleo Breakfast

If you’re going paleo, or Whole30, gluten-free or grain-free, or are vegetarian or vegan, this is a wonderful protein-packed breakfast that meets all those criteria.  And it’s so luscious, you don’t even have to tell your kids how good it is for them!  I call this Sweet Potato Breakfast Bowl my “superfood breakfast” – packed with protein, vitamins and minerals, antioxidants, and complex cards and healthy fats!

You know how healthy sweet potatoes are, right?  And then add in blueberries and almond nut butter – WOW!

Sweet Potato Almond Butter Bluberries Nuts

Let’s start with blueberries – they have the highest concentration of antioxidants of any food, are low calorie, and low carb,  high in fiber and rich in vitamins C, K and B6, and provide lots of folate, potassium, copper and manganese.

Sweet potatoes are high in vitamin A, vitamin B5, B6, thiamin, niacin, riboflavin, and, due to their orange color, are high in carotenoids. For as sweet as they are, sweet  potatoes have a low glycemic index, which means they release sugar slowly into the bloodstream, helping to steady the levels of blood sugar, even in people with type 2 diabetes.  They are also rich in potassium, manganese and magnesium, benefitting your heart, carbohydrate metabolism, and even relieving stress!

And let’s not forget the almond butter, which is high in protein (2 tbsp provide 7 grams!), magnesium, copper, calcium and vitamin E and healthy fats.  Good for your brain cells as well as your bones and muscles!

Healthy Sweet Potato Breakfast Bowl

Tip: Make the sweet potatoes ahead of time and store them in the fridge, then just pull out and warm one up in the microwave for a ridiculously quick and easy breakfast.  Do you own an Instant Pot? If so, check out my Instant Pot sweet potatoes recipe.  To bake sweet potatoes in the oven, check out oven baked sweet potatoes. You can also change up this recipe using other berries or fruits, peanut butter or macadamia nut butter instead of almond, or add cinnamon or a little maple syrup.  A hearty, healthy, warm, creamy, crunchy  breakfast in about the same time as a bowl of cold cereal!  I’m going to bet you’ll find yourself as addicted to these Sweet Potato Breakfast Bowls as I am!
