Stuffed Sweet Potatoes (AIP, paleo, Whole30)


These hearty Stuffed Sweet Potatoes are a delicious, easy and filling meal that’s AIP, paleo and Whole30 compliant and completely versatile!



Sweet Potatoes

  • 4 medium sized sweet potatoes
  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • dash of sea salt


  • 2 TBSP olive oil 
  • 6 strips bacon, cooked and chopped
  • 1/2 cup purple cabbage, shredded
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 2 TBSP red onion, finely diced
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • one lime, cut into wedges


Sweet Potatoes

  1. Preheat the oven to 400F degrees.
  2. Wash and scrub sweet potatoes and pat dry. Use a fork to prick holes several times throughout each of the potatoes.
  3. Drizzle olive oil and a sprinkle of sea salt over the sweet potatoes and massage in using your hands. 
  4. Place potatoes onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. 
  5. Bake 45-50 minutes, or until fork tender*
  6. Remove from the oven and make a slit lengthwise across the top of each sweet potato and fluff the insides with a fork before stuffing.


  1. In a large bowl, combine cooked chopped bacon, shredded cabbage, chopped cilantro, olive oil,  finely diced red onion and salt.
  2. Once potatoes have been sliced and fluffed, add filling, top with diced avocado, a fresh squeeze of lime juice on each potato and additional salt if necessary.


*Time may vary depending on the size of your sweet potatoes so I recommend checking from about 40 minutes.
