Sweet Potato Fudge Oatmeal

If you like Brownie Batter Oatmeal (and it appears that most of you do), then you will love this. Bonus: NO BANANA. To me, that's a downer, but to some of you, it will seal the deal.

Now let's be real. Have I ever steered you wrong with any recipe that contained the word "fudge"? Let's look at the evidence: Raspberry Fudge Oatmeal. Fudgy Banana and Peanut Butter Oatmeal. Ummm, CASE CLOSED.

This doesn't taste like sweet potatoes. It tastes like warm, creamy fudge. Or...dare I say it...brownie batter? Could it be possible that this recipe is more brownie batter-ish than my actual Brownie Batter Oatmeal? Uh oh.

Sweet Potato Fudge Oatmeal

by The Oatmeal Artist
Prep Time: 2 min
Cook Time: 5 min
Ingredients (serves 1)
  • 3/4 cup milk of choice, or water
  • 1/4 cup quick cook steel-cut oats (I use Country Choice Organic)
  • 1 smallish sweet potato, peeled and mashed
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder (or at least 1 and a half)
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp maple syrup (adjust to your preferences)
  • pinch of salt
  1. Bring milk (I use 1/2 c almond milk and 1/4 c water) to a boil, add oats, and reduce heat to medium. (If you'd like to add a teaspoon of flax or chia seeds, do so now.)
  2. Mash sweet potato well. Once more of the liquid has absorbed, stir it into the oatmeal.
  3. Add cocoa powder, vanilla extract, maple syrup and salt. Stir. If the oatmeal is getting too dry, add another splash of milk or water and stir to make it creamy again.
  4. When you're pleased with the consistency of the oatmeal, transfer to a bowl. Add a splash of your milk of choice and any other additional toppings (shredded coconut, nuts, etc.).

  1. Yum! Looks delish(:

    Would you mind taking a look at my new blog, Crohn's Princess? http://crohnsprincess.wordpress.com It features my daily struggles with Crohn's Disease and what food, medicines, and treatment options are helpful to me. I will definitely show some of your recipes on my blog, as they are very helpful to my stomach and eating plan. Thank you for the support!

  2. Looks delicious! Just wondering, how does TJ's unsweetened cocoa powder compare to Hershey's?

  3. When I saw this oatmeal I said: "I have to buy sweet potato and eat this, it's great! " :) It looks very delicious :)

  4. I just made this and topped it with almond butter. Tasted indulgent and delicious but it was also very hearty and filling. I think it's become my new favorite! I want to thank you for posting such amazing recipes. I'm recovering from an eating disorder, so I'm trying to build a positive relationship with food by making fun, healthy, and comforting recipes. Your oatmeal is perfect! Seriously, thank you. I am happy to say that I now look forward to my (huge) bowl of oatmeal every single morning.

  5. Silly question, but does the sweet potato have to be cooked first?

  6. Your blog is the best discovery I have made all day! I am oatmeal OBSESSED! Seriously can't go a day without my morning bowl of oatmeal. Lately I've been doing a lot of lucuma in my oats but I think I am ready to switch it up and try adding sweet potato with your recipe!

  7. Oh. My. God. This IS delicious! I made an overnight version rather than stovetop. I wasn't sure I'd like it, to be honest. But I am now devouring it, and very happy that I made two servings, for tomorrow! Thank you!!!

  8. i just love all your oatmeal recipes, i love your blog xx

  9. Could I use rolled oats instead of steal cut? What would I have to change?

    1. Yep! Use a full cup of liquid and a 1/2 cup rolled oats.
