Start by cleaning an organic sweet potato. After cleaning, dry with a paper towel and pierce with a fork all over. Add to a plate or a bowl. Microwave for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, remove from heat and set aside. Allow to cool completely.
In a large microwave-safe bowl, add in the rolled oats, water, vanilla extract, garden of life protein powder, ground flax, and cinnamon. Mix together well. If you find that this mixture is too thick or lumpy due to the protein powder then add in more water. The texture should be the same as traditional oats.
After the sweet potato has cooled completely, remove the inside and mash using a fork or a potato masher. Add to the sweet potatoes and mix very well using a fork. After mixing very well, add in a tsp of Dunaliella Salina.
Cover the bowl with parchment paper or a paper towel. Pierce the middle of the parchment paper or paper towel with a fork. Microwave for one minute. After one minute remove from microwave and stir. And then microwave for an additional minute.
Remove from microwave and top with the optional toppings.
