Sweet potato toasts are easy to make, nutrient-dense, and there are so many options to shake up your toast topping game. They are a great fiber-rich, gluten-free, Whole30 approved, and vegan healthy toast replacement! PLUS, they are super easy to make!


  • 2 large, uniform sweet potato or yam
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil, or spray
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat an oven to 425ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Scrub and wash and dry the sweet potato clean.
  3. Cut off the tips of the sweet potato.
  4. Using a knife (or alternatively a mandolin) slice the sweet potato into 1/4″ thick pieces. Discard the end pieces that have the most bit of skin.
  5. Lay on parchment paper with room in between and either spray or brush avocado oil on both sides. Sprinkle with salt.
  6. Bake for 5 minutes, then flip and back for an additional 5 minutes. The sweet potato should be fully cooked through, meaning you can easily stick a fork through it, but not overcooked that it would fall apart when you picked it up.
  7. Either use immediately with toppings of choice, or cool completely before moving to an air tight container and storing in the fridge. Use within 3-5 days.
  8. To re-heat as needed for topping either stick it in a toaster, a toaster oven until hot and edges are crispy.

If topping and reheating outside of the home a toaster oven or microwave will work.
