So I had to investigate this sweet potato toast craze because I LOVE sweet potatoes. Morning noon & night, they bring a honky tonk of healthy sweetness to almost any dish. They are so versatile & this newest idea to make them into toast is brilliant!
Unless you make bread yourself it is really difficult to find a bread without any preservatives or bad oils. Both age us & we need to stay the f* away from. And just because a loaf of bread has a pretty gluten free symbol on it does not mean it deserves the red carpet to your mouth. No way. No how. No who. Nah.
Sweet potatoes on the other hand, free of everything bad & full of lots of good, especially Vitamin A, which is an essential nutrient for glowing skin. After spending quality time with my friend Karen's airbrush & horrible bathroom lighting last night I realized my skin game needs some major TLC. Yikes! Let's make this baby into some toast!
Simply cut a sweet potato length wise into approximately 1/4" slices then stick in a toaster.....except that didn't work for me. I don't know if it was my borrowed toaster that didn't work or what the deal yo. Have you guys tried this & had success? So instead I "toasted" mine on the stove. Softer than the toaster I could imagine, but I still could pick up with my hands to eat. Which is great because honestly I wouldn't use a toaster for anything else probably so I can save some bones & counter space.
To help more with my skin game I topped the Vitamin A "Toasts" with healthy fat sources of homemade almond butter & coconut chips, & selenium rich brazil nuts. A computer friendly breakfast option that's not a smoothie & helps brighten the mug!
Crunchy Almond Butter Sweet Potato "Toast"
Cut off ends of 1 sweet potato. Then cut lengthwise into 1/4" slices.
In a pan over medium high heat put 1 Tbsp of coconut oil.
Once hot put as many slices as you can in your pan.
Cook until you can stick a fork in it.
Will be oily but its good oil! If you want less absorb with paper towel.
Unsweetened coconut flakes.
Brazil nuts, 2, chopped up.
Eat with hands or with a fork and knife!
I cut one of my sweet potato toasts so thin it actually rolled up! Hmmm...this gives me another idea...
