  • sweet potatoes
    2 med
  • old-fashioned rolled oats (not quick cooking)
    1/4 cup
  • Splenda® Original Sweetener (divided)
    6 packet
  • olive oil
    1/2 tsp
  • ground cinnamon
    1/4 tsp
  • almond butter (no salt or no-salt-added)
    1 tbsp
  • pure vanilla extract
    1 tsp
  • blueberries
    1/2 cup
  • Plain Nonfat Greek yogurt
    1 cup
  • unsweetened toasted coconut flakes
    2 tbsp
  • whole flax seeds
    1 tbsp


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. Prick sweet potatoes with fork and place on prepared baking sheet. Bake until potatoes are fork-tender, about 35–45 minutes. Set aside to cool for 10 minutes.

  2. Reduce oven temperature to 375 degrees F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, mix oats, 2 packets of Splenda Sweetener, oil, and cinnamon together until combined. Spread in an even layer onto a prepared baking sheet. Bake until lightly toasted, about 10–15 minutes. Set aside and let cool completely.

  3. Remove skin from cooled potatoes and transfer to a medium bowl. Mash potatoes, 3 packets of Splenda Sweetener, almond butter, and vanilla together until smooth.

  4. Spoon potato mixture into bowls and top with oat mixture, blueberries, yogurt, coconut, flaxseeds, and the remaining packet of Splenda Sweetener. Serve and enjoy.

    I think it was pretty flavorful with all the ingredients listed. I cooked it a day ahead to take with me and reheated it, added the yogurt, and toppings after it was hot and mixed it all together, also added a little vanilla extract and Splenda to the yogurt because plain yogurt is bitter.
