Apple Cinnamon Sweet Potat-“Oats”
It’s time for more Sweet Potat-“Oats”!! This go around – Apple Cinnamon style. I love this simple recipe and plan on making it on Facebook live for you soon!! This is a great quick and easy recipe when you are looking for a grain free and warm breakfast option. I used to be on an oat kick like crazy but haven’t had them since doing a Whole30! I have nothing against oats now, they are a great whole grain, but I had them for like 2 years straight for breakfast and am over them at the moment. Now – if you know me at all – I am on a “eat as many sweet potatoes as possible” kick. I am just obsessed – hello Sweet Potato Toast!
SPEAKING OF SWEET POTATO TOAST!!! I am going to be in the November issue of GLAMOUR MAGAZINE!!! The issue will be on stands on Tuesday, October 11th and I am freeeeeaking out!! I created 2 recipes for them using fall produce in unique ways! I cannot wait to see it and would love it if you picked up a copy! It is crazy how one little blog post can change the game. If you found my site because of it – thanks for sticking around! I can’t wait to see this thing grow even more and have some exciting things planned for the future!
Okay – now make these “oats”!!!!
So simple, so perfect for fall!
Fall means all the apple and cinnamon goodness:

I’m a lover of all things sweet potatoes too, so I’m definitely trying this soon! Love this idea !
Thanks Bethany!! I hope you love it! 🙂
Can I use regular cow’s milk in place of the Almond Milk?
Yes of course!
I was wondering, if you do not have a microwave, how would you cook the oats? Can it be made stovetop?
Yes definitely! Just cook them over medium high heat until the sweet potatoes are at the desired consistency!
I am allergic to almonds…any substitute for the almond milk?
You can do cashew milk or light coconut milk!!
Apple sause and cinnamon can add great flavours to this dish. Moreover, i love the fact that oats is a prime ingredient. It is healthy and tasty as well. I will try this for sure.
Thanks so much!
But there aren’t any actual oats in this, right?
Whole30 life had me eating all the darn eggs and I was over it…. plus I think the eggs and I weren’t getting along.
Insert lifesaver Kelsey with these oats! Mixed up a big batch and I cook it at work in the morning, the flavor is amazing and it is so warm and comforting. You really can’t go wrong with a sweet potato. I added some spicy bacon on the side and it was a perfect breakfast.
