Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Prick sweet potato with a fork and place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake until very tender, about 1 hour. Let cool slightly. Lower the oven temperature to 375°F. Reserve the baking sheet.

Peel sweet potato and mash; measure out 3/4 cup and place in a large bowl. Reserve any remaining sweet potato for another use.

Add grain medley, bread crumbs, sunflower seeds, cilantro, jalapeño peppers, tomato paste and chili powder to the bowl with sweet potato and stir until well blended. Form into 4 patties and place on the reserved baking sheet. Bake until heated through, about 30 minutes, gently flipping patties halfway through cooking time.
