Baked Sweet Potato Oatmeal
A quick and easy baked breakfast that is perfect for leftover holiday guests. Spices and sweet potato transform boring oatmeal into something fantastic!
Yes it’s another recipe with sweet potato – but this one is much healthier than yesterday’s Sweet Potato Cheesecake Pie.
This breakfast is perfect to serve the day after Christmas, if you have sleepover guests.
Everyone always has some extra sweet potato lying about, after they’ve made their desserts like this Sweet Potato Cheesecake Pie and candied yams or any other variety of sweet potato dishes that make their way on to holiday tables.
With just 1/2 cup of mashed sweet potatoes and other basic ingredients that you will most likely have about, this breakfast comes together quite easily.
With all the fiber in the oatmeal, you will fuel them up for their long drives or commutes back to their respective homes. Oats are such a healthy way to start the day and also a great addition to sweet treats. Check out some of my other oat based goodies you might like to try out!
If you are gluten free, make sure you use certified gluten free oats.

Baked oatmeal and sweet potato looks fantastic Mir. We usually don’t do sweet breakfast except for one or two but I could enjoy this as a dessert. Looks so yum.
we eat way too much sugar in the mornings here in America – pancakes, waffles, muffins and the list goes on…

interesting use of sweet potato and oats as a breakfast ! wonder if I could entirely skip the eggs and make it for the kids.. and candied yams – now thats an intriguing idea…need to look up that recipe…
oh candied yams is very popular here especially for holidays like Thanksgiving and to a lesser degree on Christmas – they are very sweet though!
That is one perfect bake on a warm morning! Love the simple flavors, i bet it is easy to replace that one egg with flax eggs/chia egg , i will definitely try this!
