If you haven’t noticed, I looooove sweet potatoes. Wouldn’t get within twenty feet of them, until I moved to Alabama. Southerners know how to throw down some homemade sweet potatoes. I fell in love with them when a sweet friend made them for Thanksgiving covered in a sweet, crispy, pecan crust.
These Maple Cinnamon Roasted Sweet Potatoes are a healthy reminder of that wonderful dish. A sweet, crispy exterior, with a creamy inside! So if you are craving a guiltless treat, try it out!
Maple Cinnamon Roasted Sweet Potatoes
- I large sweet potato peeled and diced
- 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- pinch of salt optional
- 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Toss sweet potatoes in oil, cinnamon, and salt.
Cook for 20 minutes, flipping once half way through.
Gather sweet potatoes on pan with a spatula and pour on maple syrup. Toss together and spread back out.
Bake for 3-4 additional minutes.
Remove from oven and hot pan immediately (to prevent them from caramelizing too much).
