Sweet Potato Toast Ideas
While sweet potato toasts don’t taste like bread, they make a delicious and healthy base for any toppings and spreads you’d use on regular bread. It’s a clean eating recipe at its best and here are a few ideas to get you started and packing them for lunch!
Peanut Butter & Jelly
Spread your favorite nut butter or nut-free butter on the toasted sweet potato and top it with a little jelly or marmalade.
Avocado & Egg Breakfast “Toast”
Mash avocado and spread it over your toasted sweet potato, sprinkle a little coarse salt, and then top it with a fried egg.
Protein & Berries
Top with some cottage or ricotta cheese and sliced berries or jam. It’s creamy, savory, and sweet all in one bite!
Sweet Cinnamon Roll
Sprinkle a dash of cinnamon over the toasts, spread with your favorite nut butter or nut-free butter, and top with banana slices and a drizzle of honey.
Fiesta Avocado Toast
Mashed avocado and a generous helping of pico de gallo or salsa. Its zesty, tangy flavor is irresistible.

How to Make Sweet Potato Toast
A good place to start is by washing and scrubbing the sweet potato clean. From there, it’s as simple as using a good kitchen knife and cutting the potato into ¼-inch thick slices. Toast them until golden brown and fork-tender.
