Yam & Banana Breakfast Mash with Maple Spiced Walnuts

One of the things I have noticed with clean eaters and WHOLE30-ers is eggs for breakfast… like how many eggs can one person have? For me – I don’t get sick of eggs for breakfast but I can totally get how one can be over eggs. Welp – here we go an eggless , delicious breakfast that you can make ahead.



I’m usually thinking ahead to my next meal – just me? So at dinner – I am already dreaming of breakfast which is how this recipe started. I had a few brown bananas and an extra yam. Usually my go-to with brown bananas is… BANANA BREAD! Yea I know – totally original. However, I was in the middle of a Whole30 so banana bread wasn’t in the cards… and so this simple recipe was born!



I usually make sweet potato or yams for dinner the night before and then throw in an extra for my breakfast the next day. If you do it this way – just remove the skin and mash up before you put in a container. Trust me it reheats so well!


I also top this recipe off with my Maple Spiced Walnuts – these are not Whole30 – sorrryyyy. BUT! Once you’re done with your Whole30, make these ASAP!
