You know what is underrated? Sweet potatoes for breakfast. I mean sure, they’ve made their way into the potato hash scene, but what about the boats?! What about a big ol’ sweet potato boat loaded with goodies.

Half of you will be like HELL YES!! The other half will be like err are you sure with this combo?! Trust me, the sweet potato gets so soft and caramelized on the outside. Then you load it with creamy yogurt (literally any kind you want), some crunchy grain-free granola, a drizzle of nutty peanut butter, and you have a match made in breakfast heaven. 

I mean, these do reach beyond the breakfast realm too. Snacking, desserting, lunching, they’re appropriate any time of day in my opinion! The sweet potato addition really adds a nice texture and sweetness, I can’t wait for you to give it a try!

But if you’re still having trouble picturing it, let me share some more places where I think these Sweet Potato Parfait Breakfast Boats would be PERFECT! One. Brunch with your family or a cute little brunch party with friends or family. Make some fun sweet potato breakfast boats.

Two. Make these for a really tasty meal prep! Just roast all your potatoes in advance, and store them in the fridge. Each morning you can take one out, pop it in the microwave for a minute or so to warm it up, and top it with your goods. 

Three. I think I named dessert and snacks and lunches above, so we’ll stop here. NOW, let’s get to the good stuff and make some Sweet Potato Parfait Breakfast Boats!! 

Sweet Potato Parfait Breakfast Boats

First, wash your sweet potatoes and cut them in half lengthwise. Rub them with coconut oil and place the flat side down on a lined baking sheet. Roast in the oven for 30 minutes, or until they are soft and the outer skin is kind of wrinkly. 

When the sweet potatoes are done roasting, if you’re serving them immediately, turn them over and mash the centers a bit with the fork to make a little divot in the center. If you’re prepping them for later, store them in an airtight container in the fridge. 

Add your favorite yogurt on top. I used 4% whole milk yogurt because I like it rich and creamy. Top with your favorite granola. I have some tasty ones on the blog like this double chocolate granola or this almond butter granola if you want to make your own. Or, check out my video where I go over my top five favorite store-bought grain-free granolas

Drizzle some almond butter, honey, agave nectar, whatever you’re feeling on top!!
