Sweet potatoes for breakfast? Umm, yes.

I’m not crazy. (Well … I may be but not when it comes to breakfast).

This is the perfect kick-in-the-pants way to start your day. It’s filling, full of fiber and protein and OH SO versatile. You all know how much I like love versatile recipes.  Yes, it’s true. You only need 4 main components to make this happen.

1. A cooked sweet potato
2. Nut butter
3. Fruit
4. Nuts, seeds, granola, etc.

BOOM. You’re on your way to a satisfying, power breakfast to get you through until lunch.

chocolate chip pretzel blondies

chocolate chip pretzel blondies | my skinny sweet tooth

With this last round of snow this season (hopefully), my husband and I both have “snow days”  today. We’re snowed in (a total of 11″!) so any plans to venture out was slim to none. He was working hard outside snow shoveling the driveway, so I figured I would work hard in the kitchen … making an easy batch of these. Talk about coming together quickly! And while they were cooling, my husband came back inside. I heard him sniffing the air and following the aroma right into the kitchen. He took one look at ’em and said “Oh my! What are THOSE?!” Needless to say, they look and smell great! I’m always in search of a great blondie recipe, and with this one, I believe I’ve stuck gold.

This recipe is adapted from one of my favorite blogs. The base is flour, egg, and butter free and full of fiber. In the end,  I just added the pretzels. There’s a salty crunch with the sweet, gooey blondies. The perfect combo. 😉

Have a glass of almond milk ready! 😋
