the best breakfast

I love sweet potatoes! I also love maple syrup, peanut butter, nuts, coconuts, and dried fruit.

There is nothing better than combining everything you like and finding out they all go perfectly together.

The yummiest fall breakfast:

2 medium sweet potatoes, baked for 30 minutes or until soft all the way through

3 tablespoons maple syrup

2 tablespoons peanut butter (you can increase this if you really really like peanut butter)

6 tablespoons chopped walnuts (or really any other nut you may prefer)

4 tablespoons shredded dry coconut (optional)

1 tablespoon of your favorite sweet spice (I usually use half nutmeg and half cinnamon)

raisins to your preference (optional)


1) scrape out insides of baked sweet potatoes and place into a bowl

2) mix in syrup and peanut butter, then taste and adjust depending on if you prefer richness or sweetness (or both!)

3) mix in rest of ingredients chopped nuts

4) garnish with nuts and enjoy

This goes awesome with coffee in the morning!
