Thankful Day 21: Maple Roasted Sweet Potatoes  

I think Maple Syrup is something one should be thankful for! I've made Maple Whipped Cream and Maple Pumpkin Pie so this is just another step in the right direction. And, of course, there is the pouring of maple syrup over pancakes and french toast. Oh my goodness, I love maple syrup! So I had to share this recipe I found over at Neighborhood Food.

3 medium to large sweet potatoes, in ½ inch cubes
1½ Tablespoons coconut oil
3 Tablespoons real maple syrup
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Kosher salt

Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

  2. In a large bowl or on your baking sheet, toss the cubed sweet potatoes with the coconut oil, maple syrup, and cinnamon. Spread them out in a single layer on the baking sheet. If you have too many, you may want to use two sheets.

  3. Season with salt.

  4. Bake for 15 minutes and stir. Rotate the pans if necessary. Bake an additional 10-20 minutes, or until deep brown and starting to caramelize on the edges. You'll need less time for small cubes and more time for larger cubes.

  5. I like mine between tender and caramely. So I'm doing them probably a total cook time of 25 minutes depending on the ovens mood.

I'm positive these would go over well even if it isn't Thanksgiving.

What are you grateful for today and is it delicious?

With cinnamon! It just got better! I want to hear about those... did people like them? Were they beyond delicious... so keep me posted.

Cinnamon... I could sprinkle that in!

The maple with cinnamon is DEVINE! Delicious! Will let you know!

Use a cinnamon stick rather than powder. The maple has a cinnamon stick in it so it infuses. Next time I'll just get normal maple and stick a stick of cinnamon in and see if it is the same.

That makes sense.

We just found a maple peanut butter which is sooo good. Who knew you could make peanut butter better?

It is! And on toast it reminds me a little of a pancake with syrup. Sooo good. Wish I could send you some.
