Breakfast Sweet Potato

This is intended as a “busy morning” breakfast that is quick and easy to make and eat. 


  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 1 apple, cored and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons plain yogurt, more to taste
  • ½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, more or less to taste
  • 1 tablespoon chopped nuts, optional
  • 1 tablespoon sunflower or pumpkin seeds, optional


Wash the sweet potato, pierce several times with the tip of a knife and wrap in a damp paper towel.  Microwave until soft.  2-5 minutes depending on the size of the potato and your microwave.

Cut in half lengthwise and allow to cool slightly, until cool enough to handle.  Using a fork, gently mash the potato.  Sprinkle over the chopped apple, then the pumpkin pie spice.  Drizzle with yogurt and add the nuts or seeds if using.  Serve while still warm.

Serves 2-3 depending on the size of the potato.
