(NAPSI)—When you’re looking for a healthy, tasty way to jumpstart your day, try this breakfast bowl. In addition to the usual fruits and nuts, it features a secret ingredient: California sweetpotatoes. With more than 80 nutrients, sweetpotatoes are high in vitamin B6, vitamin A, carotene and potassium. Plus, sweetpotatoes are rich in antioxidants and a great source of manganese and dietary fiber.

Easy Sweetpotato, Apple and Cinnamon Breakfast Bowl

Serves 2

1 small or ½ large apple, shredded

1 c shredded sweetpotatoes

⅔ c old-fashioned oats

½ tsp cinnamon

¼ tsp salt

2 Tbsp chopped nuts, such as walnuts, pecans, or almonds

Milk or milk alternative, for serving

Sweetener, such as honey, maple syrup, or agave, for serving

Set aside about 2 Tbsp apple. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine remaining apple, sweetpotatoes, oats, cinnamon, salt and 1 ½ cups water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until done, 5 to 10 minutes depending on brand. (Alternatively, combine ingredients in a large microwaveable bowl and microwave on high 2 to 3 minutes, depending on brand.) Divide mixture between two bowls. Top with nuts and reserved apple. Serve with milk and sweetener alongside.

Note: If you have some cooked grains on hand-quinoa, farro or barley, for example-toss in up to ½ cup during the last few minutes of cooking. You can also add chopped dried fruit, coconut or both.
