Honey Cinnamon Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Honey Cinnamon Roasted Sweet Potatoes - perfect for #Thanksgiving!

These roasted sweet potatoes are tossed in cinnamon and honey for an easy fall side dish that’s full of flavor.

My husband was out of town last week so we basically ate pizza, McDonalds, and cold sandwiches alllllll week long. It was delicious and gross all at the same time.

The minute he came home I was back to serving real food with actual vegetables. I’m not sure why, because the man doesn’t really like vegetables. He’s basically an overgrown child when it comes to dinner time. He wants meat and potatoes and cheese and more meat and maybe a side of corn. In the last couple of years I’ve convinced him that broccoli is his favorite veggie and he eats that regularly. Other veggies? Not so much.

These roasted sweet potatoes are tossed in honey and cinnamon to really amp up the flavor!

I don’t even know how a person can not like sweet potatoes.  I mean, they taste like dessert. Especially since I’ve tossed them in honey and cinnamon. They aren’t overly sweet and they work perfectly as a side dish, but still. I think of sweet potatoes (and carrots!) as dessert vegetables.

I used this organic raw honey from Amazon. Have you tried raw honey yet? It’s NOTHING like the processed stuff you’re buying at the grocery store. It’s thick and creamy, almost like butter. I sometimes eat it with a spoon.

So, like I was saying, my husband hated these which meant that I only had to share these roasted sweet potato cubes the kids. Sometimes I don’t even care that he’s not eating anything healthy because it means more sweet potatoes for me!

These make a great side dish at Thanksgiving, right along side my favorite sausage dressing  and the creamiest mashed potatoes you’ll ever eat. 

Roasting sweet potatoes is so easy! Give this recipe a try and let me know what you think!
