Serves 2



Easy Sweet Potato, Apple, and Cinnamon Breakfast

1 small or 1/2 large apple, shredded
1 Cup shredded sweetpotatoes (about 3 ounces)
2/3 Cups old-fashioned oats 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 Teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons chopped nuts (walnuts, pecans, almonds, whatever you like)
Milk or milk alternative, for serving
Sweetener, for serving (honey, maple syrup, agave, whatever you like)

Easy Sweet Potato, Apple, and Cinnamon Breakfast Bowl Directions

  1. Set aside about 2 tablespoons of the shredded apple.

  2. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the remaining apple, sweetpotatoes, oats, cinnamon, salt, and 1 1/2 cups water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a low simmer, and cook, stirring occasionally, until done to your liking, 5 to 10 minutes depending on the brand (use package instructions as a guide). (Alternatively, combine the ingredients in a large microwaveable bowl and microwave on high 2 to 3 minutes, depending on the brand.)

  3. Divide the mixture between two bowls and top with the nuts and reserved apple. Serve with milk and sweetener alongside.

Note: If you have some cooked grains on hand—quinoa, farro, or barley, for example—toss in up to 1/2 cup during the last few minutes of cooking. You can also add chopped dried fruit, coconut, or both!
