My love for peanut butter and sweet potatoes began, well, before I can remember really. As a sweet treat at lunch I’ve always topped a baked sweet potato with peanut butter, cinnamon, and a shake of salt- it’s heavenly.

By taking a typical twice baked potato and adding Cinnamon Raisin Swirl peanut butter, brown sugar, and a touch of vanilla extract I’ve created an out of this world concoction.

In fact, I am pretty sure I will be adding this to my breakfast rotation with it’s combo of carbs, protein, and healthy fats- not to mention its sweetness. It’s definitely enough to hold me over until lunchtime.
