Good morning, friends!

I’m always looking for ways to change up my morning meal and I usually like to keep things on the sweet side. During the workweek, I don’t have extra time to whip up a breakfast that takes longer than 5 minutes. Soooooo… I introduce the Breakfast Sweet Potato.

This tasty meal could not be easier. I typically roast up a few sweet potatoes over the weekend, to enjoy throughout the week. Just pop them in the oven for about an hour at 400 F. I like the texture and taste better when I cook them in the oven, but this totally works on a microwave potato too.

If you’re going the microwave route, simply pop a sweet potato in the microwave and heat for about 5 minutes. Once your sweet potato is nice and soft, slice it down the center and add a chopped Simple Nut Bar from Nature Valley.

Nature Valley has made 10 of your favorite snack bars gluten-free and the roasted peanut & honey Simple Nut Bar is one of my faves. I’ve tried quite a few of these new gluten-free bars and love everyone of them, but the Simple Nut Bar pairs so well with the sweet potato. The added crunch is wonderful! Of course, these bars are super tasty on their own as a snack, but paired with the sweet potato… incredible!
