How to make Sweet Potato Toast

Looking to switch up your same old breakfast? Are you eating eggs and toast on the daily? need something new and exciting? There are so many great, healthy, and satisfying ideas for the most important meal of the day. Many of us eat foods that ultimately lead to a crash by mid-morning, such as pastries, bagels, sweets -all lacking nutritional value.

Today I’m going to let you in on a great breakfast option that is healthy, easy to make, and packs in the fiber and pairs well with proteins to make it a complete meal for the morning.

Sweet potato toast is an excellent alternative to regular toast, even gluten free toast, especially for those who are trying to cut out ingredients like gluten, wheat and grains.

They are high in vitamin C and B6 which aid in detoxification and are a good source of biotin, B2, fiber, vitamin A, manganese, copper and can help stabilize levels of blood sugar. Cooked sweet potatoes also don’t need to be consumed immediately; they freeze well or can be stored in the fridge for 7 days.

Servings 4


  • 1 & 1/4 cup gluten free flour (Bob's red mill 1-1) large
  • 3/4 cup hemp protein
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seed
  • 1 & 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • Mix all dry ingredients: gluten-free flour, hemp protein, ground flax, baking powder, soda, sea salt in a large bowl
  • In a separate small bowl mix wet ingredients:nut milk, maple syrup and vanilla  
  • Turn oven on to 200 F,or turn on the stovetop warmer. As you finish the pancakes, you can add pancakes into a oven safe dish to keep them warm.
  • Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients, pour a little at a time the liquid into the well and stir with a wooden spoon, gradually add more liquid and continue stirring until all is mixed well. The dough should be thick, but if it's not pourable add up to 1 cup of water, pour in slowly until desired consistency. *every hemp protein powder is different so it may vary on the brand!
  • Turn stove top, medium low heat, add some coconut oil or spray. Heat coconut oil in frying pan over med heat and pour pancake mix. Cook until brown on bottom flip and brown other side. Place in oven to keep warm.
