Have you guys heard of sweet potato toast, orrrrr have you been living under a rock? The credit for this method goes to Kelsey at Little Bits Of . In a stroke of genius one day, when she was out of bread, she decided to pop sweet potato slices right into the toaster, and after not one, but TWO toast cycles (very important), sweet potato toast was born. Right now, she's doing Sweet Potato Toast WEEK where she'll be sharing SPT recipes errrry. single. day. If you don't follow already, go check out her blog!
The beautiful thing is, you can top sweet potato toast with ANYTHING, since sweet potatoes are the perfect foundation for both savory and sweet flavor combos. In honor of #sptweek this week, I, of course, went the SWEET route.
Introducing... Fruit Pizza Sweet Potato Toast! But instead of a sugar cookie crust and cream cheese frosting, I used sweet potato toast and almond butter! Chop up whatever fruit you have on hand and make it into a little art project, seriously, so fun and pretty.
Fruit Pizza Sweet Potato Toast
[Whole30 - Paleo - Gluten Free - Grain Free - Dairy Free]
Sweet potatoes (however many slices of sweet potato toast you want)
1-2 tsp crunchy almond butter per slice
fruit of your choice (sliced strawberries & bananas, blueberries)
Optional: chia seeds, shredded coconut, cinnamon
- Scrub and slice your sweet potatoes (I'd say between 1/4" and 1/2" thick). Toast per Kelsey's instructions (she does two rounds in her toaster on high). I sprayed with olive oil and did two rounds in my toaster oven on high.
TIP: If you're using your regular toaster, no need to spray with olive oil! I just did that since I was using a toaster oven.
- Allow the toasts to cool for a minute or two, then spread on a thin layer of crunchy almond butter.
- Top with whatever fruit you like -- I used strawberries, bananas, and blueberries!
- Top with whatever extras you want -- I used chia seeds, unsweetened shredded coconut, and a sprinkle of cinnamon!
