  • 4 medium sweet potatoes peeled and cubed
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 1-2 Tbsp. olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 450°. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Peel the sweet potatoes then dice into even cubes. Big or small cubes are up to you, just make them all the same size.

  3. In a large mixing bowl, add sweet potatoes, cinnamon, sea salt, and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Sir to coat. If sweet potatoes look dry, add more oil until all potatoes are shiny, but oil is not pooled at the bottom of the bowl.

  5. Serve with a side of your favorite protein and enjoy!
