Sweet Potato Toast

Sweet Potato Toast

Sweet Potato Toast is delicious, nutritious and so easy to make!

This is the perfect healthy breakfast alternative or make-ahead take-along lunch.

SWEET POTATO TOAST is for you if:  

You need to remove gluten or wheat from your diet or just feel blah & bloated after your morning piece of toast?

Not sure what you could replace bread with or feel you don’t have time in the morning to think about options?

Are looking for a healthy alternative to the standard cereal or toast and peanut butter or Vegemite.

Your just looking for a healthy nutritious, delicious brekkie or lunch!

To Make: 


🍠 cut sweet potato lengthwise in 1cm slices (don’t peel, just scrub skin and leave on)
🍠 put in the toaster, as you would bread and toast (yep that easy!) – it may need to be pushed back down 2-3 times depending on thickness. 
🍠 top with any combination – mine are from left to right:

🥜 nut butter, cinnamon & a drizzle of maple syrup, topped with banana slices & blueberries

🍌  mashed banana topped with pumpkin & sunflower seeds & crushed walnuts

🥑 smashed avo with salt, pepper & lemon juice

🍅 leafy greens (baby beet, rocket & baby spinach) & diced tomato, tossed in olive oil & lemon juice, topped with ricotta

🥚  tahini &  🥑 smashed together, topped with a poached egg & drizzled with olive oil, balsamic & lemon juice

TIPS: 

🍠 slice the sweet potato and roast in the oven the night before till just cooked – pop in the oven or toaster to warm in the morning
🍠 make toppings ahead the night before and have ready to go in the morning (leafy greens & tomato salads, dips like guacamole, tzatziki or hummus are good, or avo smashed with any of these boiled egg/feta/ricotta/tahini and drizzled with lemon juice all work well). 
🍠 hemp seeds, sesame seeds, flaxseeds, pumpkin and/or sunflower seeds all make great additions. As do nuts like almond, pistachio, cashew, walnuts and pine nuts!
🍠 if your heading out early or lack time in the morning, make a take along brekkie before you go to bed – it’s a much healthier option for your mind & body then relying on coffee alone! 
🍠 Switch out the sweet potato for thick pumpkin slices (they’ll need roasting not in the toaster) for a delicious alternative!
🍠 Works well cold as a lunch for school or work too!

Blueberry Coconut Homemade Chocolate

“This is a favourite decadent treat in our house and it’s so simple & versatile, I bet it will become a favourite in yours too!”

Ingredients

BASE:

  • 200g organic cacao butter (we use baking buttons)
  • 50g coconut oil
  • 170g cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp 100% pure vanilla extract
  • 2- 4 tbsp maple syrup or raw honey (this will be dependent on taste and you may need to start at 4 and slowly reduce, as cacao can be bitter tasting – especially to kids when they first start swapping over from shop bought sugary sweet chocolates)

TOPPING:

  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds

Method:

This is the simple part!

  • Line a slice pan (approx 28cm x 18cm) with baking paper
  • In a medium saucepan melt together over low heat, the cacao butter and coconut oil
  • when melted (cacao butter won’t melt as quick as commercial chocolate so don’t worry if it takes a little while) add the rest of the base ingredients and mix well
  • once mixed, pour into your slice pan
  • sprinkle topping over the base and freeze till set
  • remove from freezer and let sit for 10 minutes before cutting (store in the freezer in an airtight container).

CHOICES, CHOICES, CHOICES!!!!

This is where it gets fun! Mix it up, choose what you like, try new flavour combinations, let the kids choose things they love to add. Some of our favourite additions are:

  • crushed or chopped nuts (almonds, cashews, brazil & hazelnut all work well)
  • fresh or frozen berries (raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, etc)
  • Fresh or frozen fruits (or rinds – orange, lemon and lime rind is delicious!)
  • freeze dried fruits
  • dried fruits (pick organic and preservative free – a lot of dried fruits contain sulphites) – mango, banana, goji berries, inca berries, apples, etc
  • seeds (linseeds, pumpkin, chia, sunflower & sesame are all yum) – if kids aren’t a lover of seeds on top, grind a few tablespoons and add to your base!
  • Sea salt

TIPS:

  • Some shards may break off when cutting – don’t waste them use them to sprinkle in a coffee for some chocolaty goodness or add to warm milk for a hot chocolate
  • use a piece of chocolate with some warm coconut or almond milk for a  rich hot chocolate
  • melt some of the pieces to pour over homemade nicecream
  • melt some with a little extra coconut oil to make a chocolate dip for slices of fruit
  • Use in place of commercial chocolate in baking recipes!
