This sweet potato breakfast bake is Paleo and Whole30! It’s delicious and simple, and it’s a great dish to prepare ahead of time! I plan to make this bake several times this month for the January Whole30.
Who else is doing the January Whole30? The Whole30, while somewhat strict, is my favorite way to start off the New Year. Normally, I follow my own form of Paleo (meaning that I drink cream in my coffee, and I will indulge in gluten-free pizza once in a while). However, I find that I feel weighed down by sugar at the end of the holiday season. Because the Whole30 doesn’t allow any sugar (refined or otherwise; sugar is sugar), it’s a great way to “detox.”
That’s not to say that the Whole30 isn’t enjoyable — quite the contrary! I love coming up with recipes that use familiar vegetables in new ways. This sweet potato breakfast bake is a perfect example! Believe it or not, I had never made a sweet potato breakfast bake before this. I know, it’s kind of shameful . . . my blog is named “My Sweet Potato Life.”
This bake is so easy! The hardest part of the entire recipe is grating a sweet potato. Pretty tough, right?
After you grate the sweet potato, just mix everything together and dump it in a baking dish. Then bake it. That’s it! Now you have breakfast for the whole week! I would probably pair a serving of this with some spinach and sausage or eggs. Done and done!
If you prefer not to eat walnuts, just omit them or use another nut. It’s so easy to make this recipe nut-free!
This sweet potato breakfast bake is:
- Gluten, grain, soy, and dairy free
- Perfect to prepare ahead of time
p.s. If you’re not on the Whole30, you should drizzle some maple syrup on top, because it would taste incredible!
