Sweet Potato Oatmeal

Sweet Potato Oatmeal

 

Hello everyone! It’s Tiffany from The Nesting Project again to share another breakfast dish. I don’t know about you but I’ve enjoyed all the first day of school pictures on Facebook. As a mother of a 5 month old it makes be excited and a little bit hopeful she doesn’t grow-up so fast. Now that everyone is back into their routines and fall is rapidly approaching (with beautiful weather in the southeast ya’ll), I thought I would share another breakfast recipe that is right up my alley since mashed veggies and fruit are now a staple in my refrigerator.

It’s so easy for us to get sucked into all those instant oatmeal flavors you see on the shelves. I mean, they’re sexy with all those flavors. However, they just aren’t as healthy like if you made it yourself. The thing is making it from whole oats only takes a few minutes on the stove and there are a number of ways you can spruce it up. Today I’m suggesting using some leftover sweet potato puree but be creative! Some other great options

Mix peanut Butter and your favorite jelly into your oatmeal
Add a couple of spoonfuls of Nutella
Throw in a mashed banana and peanut butter
Cut up a ripe juicy peach and throw it in there

The possibilities are endless and easy when you go ahead and make your oatmeal from scratch.

Sweet Potato Oatmeal

Bring the water to a boil in a small sauce pan, add the oats and cook on medium for about 5 minutes. Stir in the puree and cook until the puree is warmed through. Garnish with a little honey.
