Sweet potato and pumpkin bread

Sweet potato and pumpkin breadThis is a really nice alternative to bread. I enjoy this pre-run or post run with avocado and some lemon, hummus and tomato,
or peanut butter and banana. It is a dense bread so you don’t need so much of it!


  • 2 cups grated sweet potato or pumpkin or a mix!
  • 1.5 cups of any flour (spelt, oat, rye, oat)
  • Some spices: I use cinnamon, cumin, paprika, turmeric, thyme—½ tsp each
  • Optional: ½ cup nut (I have used walnuts which is yummy) this adds a nice change in texture!
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp bicarb powder
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds or linseeds
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • ¾ cup water
  • Salt & pepper


  • Preheat oven to 180 C, and prepare a bread tin with baking paper
  • Combine chia seeds, apple cider vinegar and water. Let sit for 10 mins (it will form a gel)
  • Add everything else into a bowl (sweet potato, flour, spices, baking powder, salt and pepper, bicarb powder and nuts if using)
  • Combine bowls, stirring well
  • Place in oven and bake for 20 minutes
