How to Make Sweet Potato Toast

If you’ve been following along on Instagram, you may have picked up that I have a slight obsession with sweet potato toast. But honestly, what’s not to love? There are countless ways to top your toasts and you can turn these sweet or savory!

If you scroll down further to ‘Sweet Potato Inspo’, you will see a variety of my favorite ways I’ve topped my toasts over the years!

Health Benefits of Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes have some amazing health benefits! Some of their main benefits include boosting gut health, high in Vitamin A, loaded with antioxidants, and rich in beta carotene. Vitamin A helps boost your immunity which is even more important during these times!

There are two ways you can make your sweet potato toast:

  1. Oven Baked
  2. Toaster Toasts

I personally prefer oven baked as the toast just melts in your mouth compared to the toaster, but the toaster is perfect if you are in a rush and need something quick!

How to Make Sweet Potato in the Oven

  1. Wash your sweet potato(s) thoroughly with Branch Basics All Purpose Spray and water.
  2. Use your chopping knife to cut the sweet potato into 1/4 inch slices. This is the hardest part of making sweet potato and promise the rest gets easier after this step! Make sure to use a cutting board and watch your fingers.
  3. Once your potato(s) is/are completely sliced, spread them out evenly on a baking sheet.
  4. If you are looking to make sweet toasts, drizzle them with melted coconut oil evenly and rub in with fingers.
  5. If you are looking to make savory toasts, drizzle them with avocado oil or use a spray bottle to coat evenly.
  6. Sprinkle them off with pink salt before baking.
  7. Pop them into the oven at 400 and bake for ~25-30 minutes until golden and tender. Bake time may be lower/higher depending on size of sweet potato and slices so monitor closely when you get close to the 25 min mark.
  8. Top off with your favorite toppings! Inspiration ideas below

How to Make Sweet Potato in the Toaster

The steps will for the most part mirror the oven baked toasts minus the baking part. I prefer oven baked toast, but if you are in a time crunch, these will save the day! You can chop your slices on the weekend for easy access slices throughout the week.

  1. Wash your sweet potato(s) thoroughly with Branch Basics All Purpose Spray and water.
  2. Use your chopping knife to cut the sweet potato into 1/4 inch slices. This is the hardest part of making sweet potato and promise the rest gets easier after this step! Make sure to use a cutting board and watch your fingers.
  3. Once your potato(s) is/are completely sliced, spread them out evenly on a baking sheet, or large plate.
  4. If you are looking to make sweet toasts, drizzle them with melted coconut oil evenly and rub in with fingers.
  5. If you are looking to make savory toasts, drizzle them with avocado oil or use a spray bottle to coat evenly.
  6. Sprinkle them off with pink salt before toasting.
  7. Add one slice to each side of your toaster and cook on the highest setting. Be careful with your smaller slices as these may get lost in the toaster oven so I generally recommend only toasting your larger slices, otherwise you may be fishing for your sweet potato slice in the toaster.
  8. Once the toaster pops up as finished, check your sweet potato and toast again. You will need to toast 3-4 times generally to get your slice to the desired tenderness. A fork should slide in easily into the toast, if it is firm, continue toasting.
  9. Top off with your favorite toppings! Inspiration ideas below
