“I love this! I make it all the time. It is just enough sweetness. Sweet potato casserole is just too sweet – this is perfect. Try it you’ll like it!” – Susan D.
How to Roast Sweet Potatoes:
Prepare: Start out by peeling and chopping a couple of sweet potatoes. If you’re in a rush, check your local grocery store to see if they sell bags of cubed sweet potatoes in the produce area. We can find them next to the fresh broccoli florets and bags of salad.
Mix: Add the honey, cinnamon, olive oil, salt and pepper in a bowl, give it a mix, and stir in the cubed pieces of sweet potato and toss until they are fully coated in the mixture.
Roast: Once you’ve finished coating the cubes of sweet potato in the honey and cinnamon mixture, you can spread them out evenly on a baking sheet and roast them in the oven.
Give the honey cinnamon roasted sweet potato cubes a stir about halfway through, it should only take 25 to 30 minutes!
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.
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.
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.
Yes, they will last in the refrigerator for 3-4 days if they are well sealed. These are perfect for meal prep.
