Apple Cinnamon Sweet Potato Overnight Oats

Overnight Oats: for a breakfast that is fast, easy, nutritious, and yummy! Plus, you can top it with any ingredients, so the possibilities are endless. Here is one of my favorite ways to make them:


Step 1: Peel, chop and boil your sweet potato! Once it’s tender, mash until smooth. Add a bit of butter and milk (I used a heaping tablespoon of coconut oil and some coconut milk) – no exact amount, just not too runny. Season to taste. (I added ~1 tbsp. brown sugar and 1/2 tsp cinnamon).


Step 2: In your container, add your oats. I used 2/3 cup old fashioned oats plus ~1/2 tsp cinnamon, around 2 tbsp. of brown sugar, and 1 tbsp. chia seeds.


Step 3: You will add an equal amount of liquid as oats, so I mixed in 2/3 cup coconut milk. Add more toppings if you like! In all 3 jars I added about 1/3 cup of sweet potato mash and a bit of chopped apple (I like Gala). Put the lid on and refrigerate overnight.


You can enjoy this hot or cold. I like to add in more apple or berries and nuts.

Substitute sweet potatoes for banana, applesauce, peanut butter, yogurt, or……
