Been wondering how to make sweet potato toast?

This is a trendy recipe that’s been showing up all over on the health scene this season!
If you’re looking for gluten free breakfast recipes, healthy snack ideas, or sweet potato recipes in general, this is a great, easy, fast (and easy to cleanup!) way to enjoy this nutritious vegetable.

If you’re looking to go bread-less and you need grain-free recipes, this is a great alternative to bread for your morning toast!

Sweet potatoes are in season in the fall and winter, so if you’re eating seasonally but you’re sick of your old faithful sweet potato yam and squash recipes, this can be a fun new twist on a seasonal favorite!

You can make this in the oven if you’d prefer that. However, in this post I’ll be sharing how to make it in the toaster.

What you’ll need:

1 sweet potato, regular or purple

Your toppings of choice


Topping Ideas:

  • yogurt, banana, sprinkle of cinnamon

  • Avocado, salt & pepper

  • Peanut butter and chocolate chips

  • yogurt and chia seeds (or other nut or seed)

  • cream cheese and fresh berries

  • a fried egg

  • peanut butter and jam

The sky is truly the limit! Try sweet toppings, savory toppings, or any topping that suits your fancy.

How to Make:

Scrub your sweet potato thoroughly, but no need to peel it.

Slice your sweet potato in half if it’s an extra long one. If it’s shorter, simply chop off the very ends so you’re left with a nice oblong shape.

Turn the sweet potato on its end and slice long 1/4 inch slices or so.

Place sweet potato slices into the toaster and push down (if you have a frozen setting on your toaster, I used this one because it is a bit longer of a timer).

You may have to push the sweet potato down several times, flipping each time to ensure it toasts thoroughly.

Remember, you’re taking a raw sweet potato and it will have to essentially “cook” in the toaster, so give it time and push it down as many times as you need, rotating the slices as needed, until the slices are very soft when poked with a fork!

Cool slightly, and top with your toppings of choice and ENJOY!
