Sweet Potato Breakfast Bowl

This grain-free breakfast bowl is perfect when you are trying to do Whole 30 or Paleo and just can’t do any eggs anymore. Anybody else feel that way sometimes? This bowl is hearty, filling, and just the right amount of sweet. It’ll keep you full and satisfied well until lunch. If you love a big bowl of oats for breakfast, you might be pleasantly surprised how much you’ll like swapping them for out for a big bowl of veggies for breakfast. 

Looking for other grain-free breakfast ideas that aren’t eggs? Try my Overnight Chia Pudding, Keto Eggplant French ToastKeto Zucchini Pie or Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins.

Sweet Sweet Breakfast

For breakfast, I am ALL about those carbs…. or at least used to be. Bagels, muffins, oats, danishes, croissants, donuts, I’d eat it all. However, when I eat processed, refined carbohydrates for breakfast by 11 am I am starving, feigning for sugar, and preparing for a nap. Anybody else relate? Dave and I recently started a Whole 30, and I knew I wouldn’t be able to do eggs every day for 30 days. So I needed a quick and easy breakfast to toss into the rotation for days when that nasty sweet tooth can’t be tamed. The berries add a great flavor, chia seeds and flax seeds add some nutrition and texture, and the almond butter provides some healthy fats and proteins. You can change this dish up any way you want to make it yours. Add unsweetened coconut, sliced almonds, cashews, other fruits like bananas. Want it sweeter add maple syrup or honey. Want more protein? Add Whole 30 Approved Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides or protein powder of choice. Whatever floats your boat!

What Makes This Dish Paleo and Whole 30 and Vegan Friendly?

I always try and take a minute to explain what makes a dish fall into one of these categories so my readers can get a better understanding of the different types of lifestyles and make adjustments to fit their needs. Both Whole 30 and Paleo diets focus on eating whole foods that are minimally processed, avoiding any inflammatory ingredients, like gluten, grains, dairy, and legumes. Unlike the Keto Diet, both Paleo & Whole 30 allow unlimited fruits and veggies. For Whole 30, you SHOULD eat vegetables with every meal (including breakfast), so this dish is a win-win. You can eat all the fruits you want, so I say, bring em on! Since peanuts are a legume, not a nut, peanut butter is out, but Almond butter or other nut butters allowed as long as there is no added sugar. Always check the labels, you won’t believe the shit they try and sneak in. I added a little bit of almond milk when I whipped up the sweet potatoes to keep them fluffy. Almond milk and coconut on both allowed on Whole 30 & Paleo, but again you want to make sure that you read the ingredients, no sweeteners, additives, or carrageenan.

Veganism is a diet that focuses on eating plants and not eating any meat or animal by-products. Veganism is different from vegetarian because vegetarians don’t eat animal flesh or meat, but they’ll eat things like milk, honey, or even eggs depending on the individual. This bowl is 100% plant-based, but if you want it sweeter, make sure you add maple syrup, not honey, to keep it vegan.

What Ingredients Do You Need?

  1. Sweet Potatoes (cooked ahead of time. I meal prep a batch of my Instant Pot Sweet Potatoes)
  2. Almond or coconut milk

    • Exactly! All about balance. I think oats are a great breakfast option! Even when I’m eating mostly paleo. However twice a year when we do a whole 30 reset, I try and stay to it as much as possible. Thanks for stopping by 🙂

  1. Nice breakfast alternative. Its amazing how well sweet potato can be incorporated into so many different meals and desserts.

  2. I always appreciate your reasonable approach to good food choices! I don’t think I would have thought of mashed sweet potatoes for breakfast! This is super creative, thanks for sharing!
