Easy gluten free sweet potato toasts with 5 different vegan toppings that are perfect for breakfast or a snack! Perfect for a Whole30, paleo, vegan, gluten free, or anything diet!
I’ve been on the sweet potato toast train for quite a while, and I know it’s been a highly requested tutorial, but I can’t believe I’ve waited this long to show you guys! Sweet potato basically runs in my blood ever since I discovered how to make a waffle out of it, so I’m giving you another option to include sweet potato first thing in the morning!
Whether you’re doing Whole30, eating a paleo diet, a vegan diet, gluten free, or just doing your own thang (my option, what’s up!), these sweet potato toasts are beyond easy for a quick work-morning brekkie, but look fancy enough to put on your brunch table for guests! Win win 😉
Now, before we dive into some of my favorite topping options, let’s get start by determining how in the heck do you actually slice a sweet potato into sweet potato toast. So when I first started out, I thought oh this is so easy everyone can do it. Little did I know, the reason it was so easy was because of the knife I was using!
I cannot stress this enough, but you need a VERY THIN knife to slice through these tubers. I’ve tried several, and my favorite is by far this one. Some have told me that if you microwave the sweet potato for about 2-3 minutes or bake it for about 20, it softens it enough to slice a knife through it. This really depends on your microwave and oven (we all know they can be finicky), but if you’re not going for a thin ceramic knife, then you definitely need to soften it a bit!
Next, start from the outside of the longest side of the sweet potato, and slice inwards. I get anywhere from 4-7 slices per sweet potato, depending on the size. To cook them, you can do just the oven or you can oven then toast (I wouldn’t recommend just toasting- you’ll be there for a while!).
Coat the sweet potato toast with a little olive oil or coconut oil and place on tin foil in the oven. If you want to toast it as well, take it outa out 5 minutes early and place it in the toaster!
And voila! Sweet potato toast! Now, let’s get ready to top!
Simple Avocado Sweet Potato Toast
Plain and simple is how I like it. Just add some slices of avocado on top, sprinkle with sea salt and pepper, and you’re good to go! You can even throw on some herbs, like I did, to upgrade the flavor! This toast combo is completely Whole30 compliant, paleo, gluten free, and vegan!
Hummus and Tomato Sweet Potato Toast
Not Whole30 compliant, nor paleo, but it’s sure as heck delicious, vegan, and gluten free. I always love to make my own hummus, but store bought is just as good! Add a few slices of tomato to it (cherry are great too!), drizzle in some EVOO with sea salt and pepper, and it’s a beautiful mediterranean combo!
Nut Butter and Banana Sweet Potato Toast
A classic. I will never stop loving peanut butter and banana. If you’re doing Whole30 or are paleo, swap in another nut butter that fits your needs and taste! Bonus points if you can make the banana slices into a banana flower!
Nut Butter and Warmed Berries Sweet Potato Toast
If bananas aren’t your jam (how dare you! Just kidding, I figure you tolerate them a little since you’re here on the Banana Diaries haha!), you can always warm some berries up on the stove to create a nice compote or jam! If you’re looking for a thicker spread, add in a tablespoon of chia seeds while the jam is cooling! This is Whole30 compliant, paleo, gluten free, and vegan!
Coconut Yogurt with Berries Sweet Potato Toast
Coconut with sweet potato is just unbeatable. It’s SUCH a delicious taste combination. I love topping mine with homemade coconut yogurt and some fresh berries for a dairy free yet creamy treat! Or if you’re really in a rush, chop up the sweet potato toast and throw it on top of the yogurt with the berries for a dairy free yogurt parfait on the go!
