This tasty and fun sweet potato toast is made in the air fryer. We're giving you three ways to enjoy this healthy breakfast. It's all vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, oil-free, and a meal prep favorite. This recipe makes 4 servings.


Units Scale
  • 2 large sweet potatoes



Prepare the sweet potatoes

Wash and dry sweet potatoes. Carefully trim the edges or rough parts of the sweet potatoes and cut them into 1/4- to 1/2-inch slices lengthwise.


Do not peel the sweet potatoes beforehand. Not only does the skin help to keep the toast slices intact, but it also boosts the nutritional density.

Place sweet potato slices into an air fryer and cook at 300 F (150 C) for 15 to 17 minutes. If oven-baking, bake on a parchment- or silicone mat-lined baking sheet at 350 F (175 C) for 25 minutes. You want the toasts to be tender but not toasted—they will toast up in the toaster when you're ready to assemble and eat.

If meal prepping these sweet potato toasts, allow them to cool to room temperature before storing. Keep these convenient toasts in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. If freezing, separate the toasts with a small piece of parchment paper. Otherwise, they'll be difficult to pry apart when you want to make them. These sweet potato toasts freeze for up to 3 months.

Toast, assemble, and eat

When you're ready to enjoy these fun little toasts, remove them from the refrigerator or freezer. Pop one or more into the toaster. Toast until it starts to crisp on the outside.

Remove the sweet potato toast slices from the toaster and top with any or all of these combinations:

Mashed avocado, sliced cherry tomatoes, and everything bagel seasoning

Oil-free hummus, fresh chopped arugula (or microgreens)

Peanut butter (or sunflower seed butter), sliced banana, and cinnamon
