Sweet Potato Avocado “Toasts”

Sweet potato season is in full swing at our house! I love sweet potatoes year-round, but especially in the fall.  They’ve  been involved in many a chili dinner over the past couple of weeks. I also love avocado toast (basic, I know, but whatever it’s easy and good). So naturally, when I heard about combining sweet potatoes and avocado toast, I had to test it out.

Loved topping these with pom seeds, but like any avocado toast recipe the toppings are up to you!

Chocolate chips make pumpkin bread that much better.

I’ve seen all kinds of amazing new pumpkin recipes this year, from mac and cheese baked IN a pumpkin to a pumpkin that dispenses wine. Love that the pumpkins themselves are getting more involved…revolutionary things are happening here, people. But, I’m a fan of the classics, which is why every fall I make several batches of the same pumpkin treat: chocolate chip pumpkin bread.
