Sweet Potato Bread Recipe

Healthy Sweet Potato Bread

Sweet potato takes the place of the fat in this simple recipe, adding sweetness and moisture without all the extra calories and sugar.

Enjoy it as a Fall-favorite breakfast or a healthy snack; and leftovers freeze well so it’s great for meal prep.

The recipe can be vegan, gluten free, nut free, egg free, dairy free, low fat, and oil free… yet it’s so rich and delicious that no one ever believes it could possibly be so healthy!

Sweet Potato Loaf Ingredients

This quick bread is super easy to make, with no yeast required.

Instead of pumpkin, you’re using sweet potato puree, which you can either buy at the store or make from scratch by roasting regular or Japanese sweet potatoes or yams and then blending or simply mashing very well.

Sweet Potato Bread Batter

We’ve tested the bread successfully with spelt, oat, and white (all purpose) flour. If you experiment with a different flour at your own risk, such as whole wheat or gluten free, be sure to report back with results.

For a paleo sweet potato bread without flour, we found that using almond meal yields a loaf that tastes great but doesn’t look very pretty.

How To Make The Recipe

Start by combining all of the liquid ingredients in a mixing bowl. If time permits, it’s best to let this sit for around 10 minutes. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Stir all remaining ingredients into the bowl until just evenly incorporated (don’t over-mix).

Smooth the batter into a 9×5 loaf pan that has been greased or lined with parchment paper. Bake on the center oven rack for 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out mostly clean.

The recipe was adapted from my Pumpkin Cupcakes and from this Vegan Lemon Bread.
