Peanut butter and chocolate is a long time favorite in the dessert world, but what about in a savory burger? Going one step further, what if we add buttery cayenne cinnamon sweet potatoes as a sweet-spicy kick on top? Behold, the peanut butter, spicy chocolate, and cinnamon sweet potato burger. Inspired by two popular sweet favorites Mexican spicy hot chocolate and Reese’s peanut butter cups, this dish is a no-added sugar version with some nutritious adds like sweet potatoes, spinach, cacao powder, and (I guess vitamin E) peanut butter. While this doesn’t have any added sugar, it is very high fat so keep that in mind!
- English muffin bun
- Peanut butter (preferably unsalted and sugar free)
- Cacao powder
- Miyoko’s cultured cashew butter
- Impossible Meat or Beyond Beef
- Sweet potatoes (cubed)
- Cayenne pepper
- Olive oil
- Flour tortilla
As usual, the preparation is fairly loose.
In a bowl, coat the cubed sweet potatoes lightly in olive oil, add a good amount of cinnamon and cayenne pepper and shake it up until the spices have evenly covered the potatoes. Cook them at 370F until soft, maybe 15mins or a bit more. The cinnamon will blacken, but it will still taste good. After softened add Miyoko’s cultured cashew butter. Serve the extra as a side dish, this stuff is incredible!
Prepare the burger as you like. Toast the English muffin and then slather peanut butter on one of the halves. Add a decent amount of cacao powder (and if you want, more cayenne pepper) to the top of the peanut butter and press it into the peanut butter so that it begins to sink into the peanut butter. Add Miyoko’s butter to the other muffin half. These are great even on their own.
Microwave spinach on a paper towel until it has become soft and then put on top of the burger and place burger on the muffin with the peanut butter and chocolate. Finally, add the sweet potatoes on top of the burger and place the final muffin bun with the Miyoko’s butter and consume the delicious monster of a meal.
Alternatively, you may prepare this dish as a wrap using a tortilla, as shown below. I usually air fry the burrito after dampening the rolled up burrito with some water to prevent burning. You could also pan cook it or simply heat the tortilla up.
