Sweet Potato Bread (Vegan)

Sharon Palmer

I love thinking out of the box for breakfast and snack time, don’t you? While we all love a good banana or zucchini bread, did you know that you can make a really moist, light, delicious plant-based bread out of just about any kind of fruit and veggie? That’s why I turned to the power of sweet potatoes in this humble, yet flavorful, completely plant-based (vegan) Sweet Potato Bread.

With one bite, you would never guess that this bread is flavored with naturally rich sweet potatoes, along with spice, applesauce, and nut flour. Plus, this Sweet Potato Bread is healthy enough for breakfast, thanks to its low-sugar, nutrient-rich ingredients. And it’s 100% plant-based. Make it up the day before and store it in the fridge for breakfast the next morning, served with hot coffee and grapefruit. Now, that’s the way to do breakfast! It’s also delicious as a snack or even dessert. Enjoy!
