Sweet Potato Toast | Easy Vegan Breakfast Recipe

Sweet Potato Toast | Easy Vegan Breakfast Recipe

Sweet potatoes are one of the healthiest foods on the planet. They’re packed with Vitamin A, potassium, and fiber, and they’re a wonderful food to incorporate into your diet whenever possible.

So…how about swapping out that boring white bread you toast up in the morning with some colorful sweet potato toast? It’s healthy. It’s delicious. It’s even photogenic (for all you Instagram lovers)!

Without further ado, I’m excited to share this easy vegan breakfast recipe from The Plant-Based on a Budget Meal Plan that I created with Toni Okamoto. This has become a staple in our homes, and I hope you love it as much as we do!

Are you ready to meet your new favorite vegan breakfast recipe? This sweet potato toast is easy to make, plus, it’s packed with far more nutrients than toast!


  • ½ of a large sweet potato or yam
  • Peanut butter
  • Jelly
  • Banana, sliced


  1. Preheat oven (or toaster oven) to 400°F.
  2. Slice the sweet potato in half lengthwise, and then thinly slice using a sharp knife into thin pieces. Note: If the pieces are too thick, they will take significantly longer to cook.
  3. Arrange slices on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes (until soft).
  4. Top with peanut butter, jelly, and sliced bananas and enjoy!

    These sweet potato toasts are a breakfast game changer! They are perfect for me when I don’t feel like oatmeal but still want to eat something healthy and nutritious. Almond butter, sliced banana, and a maple syrup drizzle are my favorite toppings!

    How clever to use sliced sweet potatoes instead of bread for toast! A healthy and tasty breakfast. We love the almond butter and a dash of cinnamon on top!

    You’d never believe that sweet potato toast could be so tasty! The texture of the sweet potato is slightly soft and also slightly crunchy. I was so surprised at how delicious they are with just a few simple toppings. My favorites are crunchy peanut butter, banana and a few dark chocolate chips OR (this may sound strange) warm homemade chili with a dollop of hummus. Try it!

    Yummm! I’ve never made sweet potato toast and I feel the time has come–also would LOVE to have this as dessert!! As someone who’s sensitive to nut butters, I think a tahini substitution may be in order for me! Thanks, WoV!
