10 Easy And Delicious Toppings Sweet Potato Toast Toppings
Now that our sweet potato toast has cooked, let’s check out some amazing toppings we can spread and scatter on top of sweet potato to make some tasty breakfast!
1. Almond Butter And Berries
Almond butter and berries is a wonderful topping idea for sweet potato toast! We like to use unsweetened almond butter because it is full of vitamins and minerals that can help to boost your health.
However, do not worry about this topping idea not being sweet enough, because we also love to combine the unsweetened almond butter with fresh berries, all of which are juicy and sweet and make for a breakfast you will reach for over and over again!
The berries we like to use are blueberries, but you can also use blackberries and raspberries. You can also add some golden flax seed on top to add some extra flavor and health benefits.
2. Sunflower Seed Butter With Pumpkin Seeds And Bee Pollen
These toppings taste amazing with all kinds of sweet potato toast, especially white sweet potato. So, if that is your sweet potato of choice, you need to try these toppings!
Sunflower seed butter is great because it contains high levels of zinc to help boost your immune system, plus the heart-healthy fats will help to decrease high levels of bad cholesterol and increase levels of good cholesterol.
Pumpkin seeds also work to improve your immune system and are a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, while bee pollen is great because it contains antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and protein!

3. Tomato Sauce, Beef Snack Sticks, Leek, And Thyme
You can use any kind of sweet potato for this recipe, but we love using orange sweet potato the best.
The leek works to add extra flavor while the thyme adds so much freshness it makes for an excellent start to the day.
Meanwhile, the tomato and beef snack sticks work wonderfully together, creating a rich, juicy flavor. This is one of the heartiest sweet potato toast toppings on this list, and we know you’re going to love it!

4. Avocado, Bacon, And Tomato
Japanese sweet potato tastes beautiful when paired with avocado, bacon, and tomatoes.
It is best to mash the avocado so you can spread it with ease. And if you can, try to find organic tomatoes because they’re juicer and filled with a lovely fresh flavor – especially when paired with fresh thyme.
It is best to pre-cook your bacon, so you can layer it on top of the sweet potato toast without much fuss.
This is a fun breakfast perfect for a lazy weekend!
5. Jelly, Slivered Almonds, And Cacao Nibs
We love putting these topics on top of white sweet potatoes fresh from the air fryer! You can use any flavor of jelly you like, but our personal favorite is strawberry.
It’s sweet without being overpowering and tastes so good with crunchy almonds and indulgent cacao nibs.
It’s best to chop up your almonds so you have a lot of space on the toast. Slivered almonds are great to eat because they are high in protein, while cacao nibs are rich in fiber and magnesium.
You can find the link to cacao nibs here.
6. Coconut Cream, Shredded Coconut, And Medjool Dates
Calling all coconut lovers! This topping idea is for you! Coconut cream and shredded coconut taste amazing when layered on top of orange sweet potato.
It’s best to use unsweetened shredded coconut and unsweetened coconut cream because the sweetened varieties contain unnecessary sugar.
What’s more, feel free to add as many Medjool dates as you like. These dates are full of natural sugars that are much better for you. On top of that, they contain plenty of antioxidants and nutrients.
7. Tahini, Hazelnuts, And Dried Mango
Tahini is great to include in your diet because it is so versatile you can use it in a variety of meals. Take this sweet potato topping recipe for example!
The tahini flavors are a great combo for Japanese sweet potatoes, sweet hazelnuts, and the tangy-sweet blend of dried mango.
This sweet potato topping is the perfect blend of sour and sweet, perfect for those who want to get up and go in the morning and need a sweet breakfast that isn’t overpowering.
8. Cream Cheese, Cucumber, And Rosemary
If you’re someone who doesn’t like to eat a sweet breakfast in the morning, then this is the sweet potato topping idea for you!
We recommend using almond milk cream cheese because it will not be too sweet but will taste so good!
What’s more, the cucumber will provide a light, refreshing flavor perfect for a productive morning, while the fresh rosemary is very versatile and will provide a fresh, earthy flavor.
We also add poppy seeds because they are rich in fiber!

9. Coconut Butter, Cinnamon, And Spices
We love making this quick and easy breakfast with purple sweet potatoes.
The coconut butter used in this recipe is homemade, using blended roasted coconut, Brazil nuts, macadamia nuts, shredded coconut, and salt.
Although, you have the option of leaving out the other nuts if you just want a pure, creamy coconut flavor.
The warm cinnamon acts as a contrast to the creamy coconut flavor, creating a rich, deep palate that you’ll definitely want second helpings of!

10. Yogurt, Brazil Nuts, And Bee Pollen
Almond milk yogurt is a great source of vitamins E and D, plus it tastes so good when layered on top of any sweet potato on this list.
Brazil nuts are also great to eat in the morning, since they’re full of selenium and have amazing antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, setting you up well for the day.
