Recipe by::
Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 1 serving
Ingredients
  • 1 medium sweet potato, skin scrubbed with water
  • fine sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped dried fruit (e.g., cranberries, apricots, raisins, cherries)
  • 1 tablespoon seeds or finely chopped nuts
  • 1 tablespoon nut or seed butter, warmed (for drizzling)
Instructions
  1. Prick the sweet potato all over with a fork. Microwave on HIGH for 8 to 12 minutes (it will depend on size) until very tender. Let cool for 5 minutes.
  2. Place the sweet potato on a plate and split open lengthwise (be careful of the steam that will release).Open the potato wide; mash the flesh with a fork and season to taste with salt (if desired).
  3. Sprinkle the sweet potato with the dried fruit and seeds and then drizzle with the nut butter.
  4. Eat! And feel powerful :)
Notes
Nutrition Calculations: I used natural peanut butter, dried cranberries, and a combination of hemp hearts and pepitas for the seeds.

Oven Alternative: Instead of microwaving the sweet potato, place it in a pie plate or small baking pan. Bake in a preheated 425F oven for about 1 hour until very tender. Let cool for 5 minutes.
