This Thermomix Sweet Potato Loaf is the perfect sweet but savoury snack!
Our Thermomix Sweet Potato Loaf makes a great addition to the kids lunchboxes, an afternoon snack or you could even serve it with some pasta and veggies to turn it into a light meal! It's a soft and dense loaf (which is quite soft in the middle) that is still sweet (thanks to the sweet potato) even though it doesn't contain any added sugar.
This recipe was a hit with our toddler, although I did make a loaf just for him with no pepitas on top, however you can easily just pick them off for the older kids. If you don't want to use baked sweet potato, you can also used leftover steamed or roasted sweet potato - enjoy!
