  • 1 ¾ cups unsweetened almond milk

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats

  • ½ cup mashed sweet potatoes

  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seed

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon, or to taste

  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger, or to taste

  • teaspoon ground cloves, or to taste

  • 1 tablespoon honey

  • ½ tablespoon salted butter

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Combine almond milk and salt in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Add oats, sweet potatoes, flax seeds, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes.

  2. Remove from heat and stir in honey, butter, and vanilla extract.

Cook's Notes:

You may use any type of milk you prefer.

One small sweet potato yields about 1/2 cup mashed. If you use leftovers, you may need to adjust the honey or butter if your leftover sweet potato already had sweetener and butter in it.
