roasted sweet potatoes

Since sweet potatoes are in season, I have been making them daily for my kids.  My 3 year old asks for “orange potatoes” with almost every meal.

The main 2 ingredients (sweet potatoes and coconut oil) are nutritional powerhouses, which makes me love them even more.

What you need:

  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil (melted)
  • salt & pepper or cinnamon & nutmeg or chili powder & cumin (the sky is the limit)

What to do:
Chop the sweet potato into bite size chunks

Next, douse sweet potatoes with coconut oil, salt and pepper.  Just leave a smidge of coconut oil aside to grease the pan.

Spread them out on a baking sheet and place in a 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes.  About half way through give them a flip.   Since I am usually baking just one sweet potato, they fit nicely on a baking sheet in my toaster oven.

Keep an eye on them while baking, because every oven is different. Enjoy!
