Ingredients
  • 1 medium sweet potato
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup water plus a little extra
  • 1/2 cup unflavored soy or almond milk
  • maple syrup to taste
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • dash nutmeg
  • 2 tsp. chia seeds optional
  • 1/2 cup raisins optional
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
Instructions
  1. Puncture sweet potato 3-4 times with a knife and bake in 400 degree oven for about an hour, or until soft. Alternatively, microwave sweet potato for five to ten minutes, or prepare ahead of time, refrigerate, and reheat in the microwave.
  2. When sweet potato is close to finish, prepare oatmeal by mixing with water and simmering on stovetop for about five minutes, or microwaving for about two, until fully cooked. Add a bit more water during cooking as needed.
  3. When sweet potato is finished, cut it open and scoop out the soft insides. Add your sweet potato to oatmeal and stir with a fork to break up any chunks and get a smooth consistency.
  4. Add remaining ingredients and stir until blended.
  5. Divide into bowls.
