Hi, I’m coming at you once more today, and this time I’ve got a bomb recipe for you. Ever had sweet potato bread? Well, if not, now’s the time. It’s healthy, sweet, moist, absolutely delicious, and all you need is 6 simple ingredients! Sounds good? Good. One last note though, if you want a higher, more bread shaped loaf, I recommend doubling the recipe, OR stuffing half your loaf pan with aluminium/cooking foil and lining the other half with baking paper. Alright, let’s get to it:
• 2 medium Sweet potatoes (around 400g)
• 1 C Whole grain spelt flour (I am yet to try other flours, and will let you know when I do)
• 2 tsp Baking powder
• Pinch of salt
• 2 Tbsp Maple syrup
• 1/3 C Almond butter
1. Begin by heating your oven to 200 degrees Celcius and washing and drying your sweet potatoes. Then halve them lengthwise and place on a baking tray with baking paper, cut side down.
2. Bake the sweet potatoes until they begin to seep and release their juices, about 30 minutes.
3. In the meantime, in a large mixing bowl, combine flour, salt and baking powder.
4. Once the sweet potatoes are done, remove them from the oven, reduce heat to 180 degrees, and let the potatoes cool slightly, before cutting into thirds and transferring to a blender or food processor. The sweet potatoes should weigh about 360g.
5. Blend until smooth, then add maple syrup and almond butter and blend again.
6. Add the sweet potato, maple syrup, almond butter mixture to the dry ingredients and stir to combine thoroughly.
7. Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray (or see note above for a “half-pan version”)and pour in the batter.
8. Bake for 40 minutes, or until the top is slightly browned and a stick inserted comes out clean.
9. Once done, remove from the oven, cool in the pan for 5 minutes, and finally transfer to a cooling rack to cool fully.
10. Eat as is or top with peanut butter and jelly (or whatever floats your boat) for a prefect breakfast or snack.
