Best Sweet Potatoes for Making Sweet Potato Toast
The best type of sweet potatoes to use? Well, that's up to you! I used a variety: purple stokes, white, orange/red and Japanese sweet potatoes. All are great tasting options and cook relatively the same.
How to Cook Sweet Potato Toast
Sweet potato toast can be made a variety of ways. You can bake it in the oven, cook it in the air fryer or even toast it in the toaster like bread.
I made this particular recipe in my Cuisinart Convection Toaster Oven Airfryer, so that's the method I'll be explaining today.
Sweet Potato Toast in the Air Fryer
First, cut your the sweet potatoes into thin slices, about ¼ inch thick. Of course, you can make them thicker or thinner than that, but the cooking time will change.
Next, brush both sides of the sweet potato slices with olive oil. Lay them in the wire air fryer basket so that they aren't overlapping and put them on the upper rack of the air fryer.
Set the function to "Air Fry" and the temperature to 350 degrees F. Air fry for 15 minutes, then flip the sweet potatoes and cook an additional 5 minutes.
After cooking, cool the sweet potato toast for a few minutes, add your favorite toppings and eat!
I have a huge selection of toppings that are all Paleo friendly, easy and delicious.
To start, pick a spread such as almond butter, avocado or dairy free cream cheese. Here are some great options:
- nut or seed butter
- coconut butter
- jelly or jam
- mashed avocado
- almond milk or coconut milk yogurt
- almond milk cream cheese
- tomato sauce
- coconut cream
Next, add toppings. This can include anything from chopped nuts to fresh herbs, salami or berries. Here are my favorite toppings:
- bee pollen
- fresh herbs (thyme, rosemary)
- cacao nibs or chocolate chips
- bacon/salami/chopped meat sticks
- veggies: cucumber, tomato, radishes, onion, leek...
- dried fruit: mango, dates, strawberries, blueberries, apple
Mix and match your favorites and don't be afraid to try new combos.
