Coconut Almond Sweet Potato Toast
Makes 3 Servings
Sweet potatoes are a great source of immune-boosting vitamin A. This fun unique way to serve them is a real crowd pleaser!
1 large oval-shaped sweet potato (about 1 ¼ pounds)
1 teaspoon coconut oil, melted
¾ cup low fat cottage cheese
1 8-ounce can crushed pineapple, well drained
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
3 tablespoons sliced almonds, toasted
3 tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut, toasted
Optional: drizzle of maple syrup
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Wash sweet potato well. Slice length-wise into ¼-inch slices (you should get about 6 slices). Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and brush the tops with melted coconut oil. Bake for 15-17 minutes, until crisp-tender. Set aside to cool for at least 5 minutes.
In a large bowl, mix together cottage cheese, pineapple, and pumpkin pie spice until well combined.
Spoon 3 tablespoons of the cottage cheese mixture onto each sweet potato “toast”
Top with the almonds and coconut. Drizzle with maple syrup, if desired.
Note: For a vegan option, replace the cottage cheese with 1/3 cup coconut cream.
