This Whole30 sweet potato apple breakfast bake is naturally sweet, teeming with warming cinnamon, packed with protein, healthy fats, and fiber. The dish reminds me of a New Orleans-style bread pudding with its cinnamon and raisins, but it's totally Whole30 compliant! A wonderful Whole30 breakfast, Whole30 sweet potato recipe, or paleo breakfast when you're simply tired of eggs and bacon.

Paleo breakfast. Ugh. I wish I could skip it every day, but that’s not super encouraged if it’s from sheer… distaste. I find myself truly skipping the meal out of a basic lack of desire to eat savory food within, oh, 3 hours of waking up way more often than I should admit.

The dish is reminiscent of a New Orleans-style bread pudding, but it's totally Whole30 compliant! A wonderful Whole30 breakfast or paleo breakfast when you're simply tired of eggs and bacon.

So I decided to try on a couple of new naturally sweet recipes, but many seemed too custardy, too small, too complicated. The idea to sauté sweet potatoes like a hash, adding in sweet, cinnamon-coated apples, then topping with a creamy egg mixture came to me, and I followed it without very high hopes. Sweet potatoes and eggs? That’s a solid meh from me… but as the scent of the sweet potato-apple mixture began to waft through the air, grounded with plenty of ghee and heady cinnamon, I fell madly in love.

I tend to speak in hyperbole a bit more than I should, but when was the last time I was *freaking out* because a recipe was so good (I mean, besides my paleo shrimp and grits, but if you’ve had them, you’ll see why!)?

Chunks of sweet potato and apple coated in ghee and cinnamon, dotted with plumped raisins and rich walnuts, all covered with a creamy egg mixture? This paleo sweet potato apple breakfast bake is exactly what you need after days or weeks of savory paleo breakfasts. Trust me… I’ve been there many times!

This recipe is quite forgiving, so feel free to add more or less cinnamon, walnuts, or raisins, as desired.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325º.
  • Heat ghee in a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat, then add sweet potatoes. Cook, stirring often until beginning to soften, about 5-10 minutes.
  • Add in apples, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, and raisins, and cook until apples are softened and raisins are plumped, about 8-10 minutes. Both apples and sweet potatoes should be easily pierced with a fork. If necessary, add in a little water to prevent sticking and burning. Add in in walnuts and salt, about 1/2 teaspoon to taste. Stir to combine well and sauté the mixture a minute or two
  • In a medium bowl, whisk eggs and coconut milk until smooth and well combined. Remove apple-sweet potato mixture from heat and pour egg mixture over. Smooth to cover with the back of a spoon. Bake for 20 minutes or until set. A knife stuck in the middle should come out clean.
  • Eggs: 6 eggs creates a less eggy texture, so this is personal preference. I love both!

      We have not tried freezing this specific dish, but most sweet potato dishes freeze well. If you have leftovers, it would be worth a try! Hope this helps!

  3. What is the best type of apples to use?

    1. Anna Claire | 40 Aprons Team Anna Claire | 40 Aprons Team says:

      Whatever you have on hand, but pink lady and honey crisp are two of our faves!5 stars

  4. I don’t have an oven-safe skillet. What size do you suggest for a baking pan?

    1. Anna Claire | 40 Aprons Team Anna Claire | 40 Aprons Team says:

      An 8×8 should work, and you could possibly go as large as a 9×13! But have not tested this variation, so we can’t say for sure how it will turn out. You can put another baking sheet or pan underneath it in case it cooks over. Hope this helps!5 stars

  5. I am the only member of my family who actually follows a Whole30 or paleo diet but every member of my family asks me to repeat this recipe often! It’s one of our favorites!5 stars

    1. Anna Claire | 40 Aprons Team Anna Claire | 40 Aprons Team says:

      Love it!5 stars

  6. Just made this my house smells amazing but I do kind of feel like I made an apple frittata. I wish mine looked more like the picture. Do you mix the eggs in or just on top?

    1. Anna Claire | 40 Aprons Team Anna Claire | 40 Aprons Team says:

      You just pour it over!5 stars
