Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Boil 2 medium diced sweet potatoes in a sauce pan for 15-20 minutes or until tender. Remove skin and puree in a blender or food processor until smooth.
In a large bowl, combine sweet potato puree, milk and maple syrup. Add in oat flour, cocoa powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and any other add-ins you choose. Combine until dough is thoroughly incorperated.
Place the dough in a greased bread loaf pan and bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes or until fork comes out clean and the top is hardened a bit. It is ok to underbake slightly as it will make for a fudgier loaf. Let cool completely and enjoy topped with nut butter of choice!
