Packed with flavour and nutrition, this soft and moist sweet potato bread is sure to be a hit with everyone and it is a great alternative to the classic banana bread.

Enjoy it as breakfast with a cosy cup of coffee or a healthy snack; and leftovers freeze well so it’s great for making in advance.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup mashed sweet potato (approximately 1 medium sweet potato, cooked and mashed well)
  • 1 cup soy milk or milk of choice
  • 6 tbsp oil
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups oat flour (you can also use spelt or white)
  • 1 cup coconut sugar (you can use light brown sugar or white sugar)
  • optional 1 1/2 tbsp cinnamon (you can adjust to your taste)
  • 1 tsp each: baking soda, baking powder, and salt
  • optional chopped walnuts, shredded coconut, chocolate chips

Directions

  • Combine liquid ingredients. For a smoother consistency, use a blender or food processor. Let sit 10 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  • Fold in the remaining ingredients and make sure that the batter has no lumps.
  • At this point you can also fold in chocolate chips or chopped walnuts.
  • Grease a loaf tin, pour the batter and smooth the surface with a spatula.
  • Sprinkle some shredded coconut and place walnut halves (optional)
  • Bake for 45 – 55 mins or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out mostly clean.

Side note:

Loaf can be covered with a cloth and left on the counter for the day (it tastes even better the next day!). Then after a day or two, it’s best to refrigerate or freeze.

Enjoy!
