Sweet Potato Toast

This sweet potato toast is a super easy breakfast item to spice things up!

I love toast for breakfast! My favorite suspects are avocado toast topped with a poached egg or peanut butter toast topped with sliced bananas and cinnamon. For a less basic toast, I adore toast with ricotta, fresh figs and honey. Figs are a summer luxury and I enjoy every minute of them while I have them in the hot months of the year.

These sweet potato toasts take your breakfast game to a sweet level. I could honestly eat sweet potatoes everyday. Breakfast, lunch and dinner. If anyone would like to challenge me to it, I am totally up for it.

I am not a fan of low-carb food but I truly find the sweet potato toast trend so unique and fun to eat! To be completely honest, I especially love making these when I run out of my favorite bread (lol). I love buying bread at local bakeries a local shop I go to often makes my favorite seedy 6 grains loaf and spelt bread.

This sweet potato toast is soooo incredibly easy to make. You only need one simple ingredient you likely have in your kitchen: SWEET POTATOES. Then all that’s left is deciding what toppings to add to your toast. Let you imagine run wild!
