Course: Breakfast
Servings: 4
Author: Alissa
Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup water + 2 tbsp. ground flax seeds
  • 1 1/2 cups oats
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/4 cups non-dairy milk of choice
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup divided
  • 1 medium sweet potato diced
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. vegan margarine
Instructions
  1. Whisk water and flax seeds together in a small bowl. Allow to sit for at least ten minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350.
  3. In medium mixing bowl, mix oats, pecans, cinnamon and salt. Add milk and 2 tbsp. maple syrup. Mix thoroughly. Set aside.
  4. Heat margarine in medium skillet over medium heat. Add sweet potato and sautee until softened and lightly browned, about ten minutes.
  5. Add remaining 2 tbsp. maple syrup and sautee about another two minutes, or until syrup reduces to a thick, sticky coating on sweet potato.
  6. If you're making this in a cast iron skillet like I did, you can stir your oatmeal mixture right into the skillet with sweet potatoes. Otherwise, add sweet potatoes to your mixing bowl, blend, then transfer everything to a greased 9 x 9 baking dish.
  7. Bake 35 minutes or until firm in the middle. Serve with additional margarine and maple syrup.
