Breakfast Loaded Sweet Potato
'Sweet potato toasts' made the rounds in the trendy wellness recipe world recently, thanks to the avocado toast wave making veggies a popular breakfast choice. But you don't need to load your sweet potato on a piece of bread to enjoy it for breakfast! Cut out the middle man and turn your sweet potato into a vessel to carry yogurt and granola. You can absolutely eat the entire sweet potato, just be sure to scrub the skin before baking.
For creaminess (and a nod to a traditional baked potato with sour cream), Icelandic yogurt is used for a thick, rich topping that's protein-packed. Icelandic yogurt, like Greek yogurt, is strained for a thick texture and higher protein content per serving. For a crunchy texture change and nutrition boost, Bob's Red Mill granola provides whole grain fiber and protein. Unlike many granolas, these granolas are gluten-free and have less than 7 grams of sugar per serving (but insanely good, unusual flavors like lemon blueberry). For an optional boost of sweetness, drizzle maple syrup on top.
