Oats and Porridge

Fruity Sweet Potato Oatmeal

Sweet Potatoes are a little under appreciated. Most people enjoy baking them, frying them, forming them into chips, but, because they are so sweet they make a wonderful addition to sweet dishes as well which makes them a fab addition to Oats, Cakes, brownies. The possibilities are endless.

This is a simple, deliciously quaint recipe for Fruity Sweet Potato Oatmeal. The combination of the Sweet Potato Oats combined with the Brown Sugar makes it super yum. The nuts give it a lovely crunch and nutrient boost while the yoghurt and fruit take it to the next level. You have two options when you’re serving this.

You can either add your toppings and make it look pretty at the end.

Or, at the very end, place everything in the pan and give it a good mix before serving up. Personally, I prefer this method for convenience.
