These baked sweet potato recipes are perfect for everything from breakfasts and snacks to dessert. Learn how to bake a sweet potato and use it to make muffins, brownies and more!
If you’ve been around awhile, you know I have a baked sweet potato recipe or two! I bake a sweet potato (or several) pretty much every week when I food prep and while I sometimes use them in Sweet Potato Dinner Recipes, I most frequently bake with them. Baked sweet potatoes are the perfect addition to muffins and bars, brownies and cakes!
But before we talk about the recipes, we need to talk about preparation.
How to bake a sweet potato
There is a baked sweet potato recipe for pretty much any small kitchen appliance you might have. When I need one quickly, I use the microwave. If I’m cooking several, I typically use the instant pot or air fryer. Here are several options:
- Baked Sweet Potato In Microwave – stab multiple times with a knife and microwave 5-6 minutes
- Baked Sweet Potato Recipe in Oven: just place on a baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees F until soft enough to pierce easily with a knife – 45 min or so.
- Instant Pot Sweet Potato Recipe
- Baked Sweet Potato in Air Fryer
- Crockpot Sweet Potato Recipe
Any of these methods will cook the sweet potatoes and make them soft enough for baking. If you haven’t tried already, here are several recipes!
