Servings 2


  • 2 Sweet potatoes sliced into 1/2 cm thin slices
  • 2 Eggs whisked
  • 1 tbsp Plant based milk (I used almond)
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon (optional but recommended)
  • 2-3 drops Stevia vanilla drops
  • Coconut oil, to fry

For the topping

  • 4 tbsp Yogurt of choice
  • Raspberries
  • Blueberries
  • Nutbutter (I used mixed nutbutter)


  • There are two options for the sweet potatoes. I went with the first one.
  • Option 1: Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
  • Slice the sweet potatoes and place on a parchment covered baking sheet.
  • Bake in the oven for approximately 10-12 minutes (until soft).
  • Option 2: Roast the sweet potatoes using a toaster. You might need to run it twice.
  • Combine whisked eggs, milk, cinnamon (if using) and stevia vanilla drops in a bowl. Whisk until combined.
  • When the potatoes are ready (either in the oven for toaster) peaheat a nonstick pan over medium heat with some coconut oil (if using, I did not use it)
  • If you didnt use the oven turn it on and heat up to 100 degrees Celsius.
  • Dip a slice of sweet potato in the egg whish and add to the pan. Fry for about 1 minute on each side, just until it starts to get golden brown.
  • Place the sweet potatoes in the hot (but turned off owen) to keep them warm.
  • Repeat with the remaining.
  • Serve the sweet potato french toast with yogurt, raspberries, blueberries and nutbutter.
