These honey roasted sweet potato cubes are tossed in cinnamon for an easy fall side dish that’s full of 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.
These roasted sweet potatoes aren’t overly sweet and they work perfectly as a side dish, but still. I think of sweet potatoes (and carrots!) as dessert vegetables. And who doesn’t need a sweet dessert veggie in their life? 😉

There isn’t much to this recipe. It is super easy.
The only part that is any effort at all is peeling and cutting the sweet potatoes. Since there are only two potatoes in this recipe, it doesn’t take much effort!
Basically, all you have to do is mix the honey, cinnamon, and olive oil in a bowl, then cook them on a baking sheet.
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.
Can I use maple syrup instead of honey?
Of course! It’s a great substitute. We often switch these up and use syrup instead of honey – both are great!
Be sure to use pure maple syrup – not the cheapy pancake syrup.
How long do I need to bake the sweet potato cubes?
For this recipe, you need to roast the sweet potato cubes for about 25 minutes. Keep in mind that if your cubes are smaller or larger, it will affect the cook time. Try to chop them into even sizes for even cooking.
Don’t forget to stir or flip them halfway through so the texture of the sweet potato cubes stays consistent.
Are sweet potatoes low carb?
Traditionally sweet potatoes would not be considered low carb. However, depending on your goals, you may be able to fit a small portion into a low carb diet. The addition of honey in this recipe, though, will likely not be a good choice for your low carb diet.
