Ask me what my favorite meal of the day is and I will always say breakfast. Ask me what my favorite breakfast item is and I will always say oatmeal. That being said, I always love to come up with different oatmeal recipes and this one is perfect for the fall season. Nothing like freshly baked sweet potato pecan baked oatmeal to warm up to on those cold mornings.
Sweetened with maple syrup and spiced with cinnamon. The sweet potato pairs perfectly with the crunchy & sweet pecan topping. Serve with a drizzle of maple syrup and if you’re a peanut butter fan like me…a generous spoonful of peanut butter.
A perfect serving of pecans in every bite. You may think that putting sweet potato in oatmeal is a bit of odd. But with the right pairing of sweetness from the maple syrup and spice from the cinnamon..it’s simply delicious!
This is a great breakfast to save for the rest of the week. Just store in an airtight container in the fridge and warm up in the microwave or stovetop for a couple of minutes.
