5 Insanely Delicious Sweet Potato Toast Recipes

Instagram has become the birthplace for many a food trend. First, there were smoothie bowls — not to be confused with smoothie art poke bowls, fruit-infused water and now, sweet potato toast. (Yes, TOAST.) If you’re following a gluten-free diet or are swearing off wheat, sweet potatoes are a great option. Plus, they’re rich in vitamin A and fiber, and they lend a sweet, nutty flavor to foods. This genius idea came from Little Bits Of blogger Kelsey Preciado. Simply cut sweet potato slices about 1/4-inch thick and pop them into a toaster on high until they’re slightly brown and golden. (Preciado’s pro tip is to toast the slices twice.) Whether you’re looking for a super quick breakfast, a hearty late-afternoon snack or a simple, taste-tempting dinner, consider these sweet potato recipes.
