Sweet potato mash with homemade granola

This recipe is easy to store and is perfect for a quick breakfast or to pack for your kids to school. I would always love to make this when I had a busy week and no time to have breakfast but still wanted to make sure that I ate something in the morning so that I'm ready to go for a long day.


Useful ingredient information:

Granola:

A more healthy alternative to corn flakes. Great thing is that there are so many options for what you can add. Granola can be stored up to a month in an airtight container. If you are making granola for your kids I recommend using cocoa powder to give them a great alternative to their favorite chocolate cornflakes


Puffed amaranth:

If you don't have this ingredient you can also use, shredded coconut or almonds. Normally you can find this in every bio-store or wholefoods.

Coconut oil:

Even though it is important to choose cold-pressed, virgin organic coconut oil it should still be consumed in moderation.


Ingredients: (4 servings)


Mash:

  • 1 large sweet potato

  • pinch of cinnamon

  • pinch of nutmeg

  • 1 tsp vanilla sugar

  • maple sirup

  • coconut oil (or any vegetable oil)


Granola:

  • 300g oatmeal

  • 100g puffed amaranth

  • 2 tsp sugar

  • 3 tbsp almond milk

  • pinch of cinnamon

  • vegetable oil


Lets start cooking:

  1. For the granola, you want to put the oatmeal with the amaranth, cinnamon, and sugar into a bowl and stir until everything is evenly coated

  2. now add the milk slowly while stirring until they stick together (you don't wanna soak them, just want to make sure that they stick)

  3. Now place everything on a baking sheet with a little bit of coconut oil on the bottom

  4. in the oven for around 15 minutes until its slightly brown and dry

  5. Take it out of the oven and let it cool for around 2 hours

  6. Now it can be stored in a jar for up to a month

  7. For the mash first, poke holes into the sweet potato with a fork so that later on it won't burst

  8. Now bring a pot of water to boil and drop your sweet potato in

  9. It should cook until it's soft, after that you want to peel it and throw the flesh into a small pot.

  10. In the pot add the rest of the ingredients so that the mash starts to slightly caramelize this takes about 5-10 minutes (don't forget to stir)

  11. Now let it cool or eat it directly warm

Enjoy!
