Loaded Breakfast Sweet Potatoes

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.

Healthy CocoChip Almond Cookies

There was a girl that used to work with me. Her name was Angie. She was health conscious and tried to make better food decisions for herself as well as her family. Maybe that’s why we became really good friends. 🙂 Well, one day she had brought in these “cookies”. I took one look at them and I knew I wanted one. There were flecks of chocolate, nuts and chia seeds. I had to have the recipe. Luckily for me, she wrote down what she could remember. And the first thing I did when I got home? I made some darn good-for-you cookies.

I’ve made a few variations of these cookies. I would swap out walnuts for almonds, dried cherries for raisins, chocolate for white chocolate. These however, are my favorite. It’s obvious I love anything coconut and chocolate. (here and here … oh, and here), but feel free to add your favorite combos.

These cookies aren’t overly sweet (depends on how much honey/chocolate you use). They could be gluten-free, and holds everything that is good for your body. I kind of feel guilty calling these bad boys cookies, but that just makes it more treat-worthy 😉 Not a fan of cookies (do those people exist?!), then make them into bars. Problem solved. 😉

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! 😋
