2 Way Sweet Potato Toast!
Potatoes are a huge hit with our twin boys and so I am constantly trying to find ways to sneak healthy fats like seeds/nuts/avocados in the mix!
I tried sweet potato fries with guacamole (surprisingly good!), Okinawa potato mash with raw cashews as a secret blend formula and more but THIS is the one that is a hit EVERY SINGLE TIME!
If you have had enough oatmeal, scrambles and avocado toast for a lifetime ( I feel you!) then try this bad boy. You can do breakfast with any kind of nut/seed butter and top with granola/flax/hemp/chia/chocolate chips….. OR you can make a quick snack with some yummy hummus and greens!
Feel free to mix this up with any kind of potato and for adults you can just slice the sweet potato in half LONG wise (much bigger serving!).
