If you’ve been feeling uninspired in the “snack” realm, or just want a comforting, healthy snack option, this sweet potato bread recipe is for you.
Or, if you’re searching for a quick bread recipe with no yeast, this recipe is also for you.
Confession: I’ve never baked bread with yeast. I would like to at some point, but I really prefer quickbreads. I usually prefer sweet quick bread recipes, as opposed to savory.
And this chocolate chip sweet potato bread of course. With melty butter. Swoon.
While old fashioned sweet potato bread can be such a cozy, comforting recipe, this sweet potato quick bread recipe has that and so much more.
With a blend of sweet potatoes, whole wheat flour and oat flour, this is a healthy sweet potato dessert, snack or meal, and ranks among my favorite oat flour recipes.
This is not your typical southern sweet potato bread recipe.
For exact ingredients and measurements, scroll down to the recipe card.
Instead of butter, we’re using coconut oil, which does add some medium chain triglycerides (which are more readily available and used in the body).
There’s also some greek yogurt, which adds protein, calcium and Vitamin D, but also adds an incomparable fluffiness to the recipe.
Bread made with yogurt is my favorite! And sweet potatoes! Sweet potatoes are the best add in’s for recipes.
What I think makes this sweet potato quick bread recipe so unique, though, is that the sweet potato complements both flours so well and provides some cohesiveness and loads of flavor and nutrition.
Cook your sweet potatoes and let them cool.
Once cooled, mix in a small bowl with wet ingredients.
Slowly mix in dry ingredients.
Bake for 40-45 minutes!
Yes! I usually prefer to microwave a raw sweet potato because it’s quick and it keeps them soft when cooked, whereas sometimes the oven can lead to a crispy exterior.
How long do you microwave sweet potatoes in the oven? I’ve found about 7 minutes for a medium sweet potato to be the sweet spot!
I love both all purpose and whole wheat flours in my bread, but an oat flour bread recipe really stands out.
Oat flour makes the bread so soft! It is also a gluten free flour option for those who need or prefer gluten-free bread.
It usually takes a few pulses.
If you use gluten free flour in place of the whole wheat flour, you can make this sweet potato bread gluten free.
When measuring the oat flour, make sure to measure the flour after blending rather than measuring the oats you’re adding to the blender.
I’ve made that mistake before!
Can a quick bread recipe be used for muffins? Absolutely!
If you’re like me, you’ll probably want to transition this bread into sweet potato chocolate chip muffins because they’re easier to travel with, serve to kids, and sometimes you just want muffins!
Grab a muffin or two for after your morning workout for a healthy breakfast recipe for runners.
To make into muffins, preheat oven to 375 and bake for 18-22 minutes, or until muffins are baked through and a toothpick comes out clean.
