80--- Yam & Apple Breakfast Mash

Who said potatoes were just for mashing? And who said mashes were just for dinner?

Let's break some rules.

This sweet mash is 1) healthful 2) delicious 3) easy.

Yam & Apple Breakfast Mash
Serves 6

2 medium yams, washed and cut into large cubes
2 large apples of your choice, cored and cut into large cubes
1 tsp ground cinnamon
Olive oil spray
1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 1/2 Tbsp pure maple syrup

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In a bowl, toss together yams, apples, and cinnamon.  Spray mixture with olive oil spray and toss to coat.

Spread mixture evenly onto a baking sheet prepared with olive oil spray.  Bake for 25-35 minutes, or until cubes are soft.

Place cubes back into bowl.  Use a potato masher to mash cubes, then add in milk and maple syrup.  Mix to combine.

Serve warm, sprinkled with cinnamon if desired.

  1. Yum! Sounds awesome! I love how you use ingredients I haven't tried before (yams). It makes me want to get out and try new things :)
