How to Make Breakfast Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

This is such a simple recipe, all you need is to roast your potatoes until they're fluffy and tender.

Then split them oven and pile them high with delicious toppings. The potatoes are so good when they're still warm, but you can also serve them at room temperature.

Ingredients

You need just five simple ingredients to make this healthy breakfast:

  • Sweet potatoes. I like to use orange-fleshed sweet potatoes for this breakfast. However, you could definitely use Japanese or purple potatoes!
  • Peanut butter. Use your favorite! Chunky and smooth both work.
  • Banana. I like to use a not-too-ripe banana so you can slice it and it doesn't turn to total mush.
  • Hemp seeds. These are jam-packed with healthy fats and protein.
  • Cacao nibs. For a hit of that delicious chocolate and peanut butter pairing.

Nut-Free Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

To keep this recipe nut-free, use sunflower butter, pumpkin seed butter, or even tahini instead of peanut.

If you prefer almond or cashew butter, those are both also delicious!

Feel free to also swap out the banana with another fruit. They would be delicious with chopped apples or even strawberries.

Make-Ahead Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

If you're a meal prepper, this is a great recipe to keep in your back pocket. Bake the sweet potatoes and store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to four days. When you're ready to eat, you can reheat the potatoes in the microwave, then load them up with toppings.

Other Topping Ideas

It's hard to beat peanut butter, cacao, and banana. But if you're looking for other tasty toppings for these sweet potatoes, try:
