Paleo Sweet Potato Breakfast Cake (Recipe Revisit)
Since my daughter had her tonsils out, I figured a big batch of mashed sweet potatoes was definitely in order. While she nibbled on a tiny bit topped with a little maple syrup, I turned the rest into a multi-serving, oven-baked version of my speedy breakfast treat.
Paleo Sweet Potato Potato Breakfast Cake
1/3 cup almond meal
1/3 cup melted coconut oil
1 1/2 cup mashed, cooked sweet potato
1 tbs. pumpkin pie spice (or use combination of cinnamon, nutmeg & ginger)
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1 tbs. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
large handful of dried cranberries and/or raw chopped nuts, if desired
Preheat oven to 350. Combine all ingredients through baking powder in a medium bowl, stirring until thoroughly mixed. Stir in nuts/dried fruit if using. Pour into a medium-sized greased loaf pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
