Cinnamon Coconut Sugar Sweet Potatoes:

  • 2-3 lbs sweet potatoes sliced into medallions
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Chili-Cumin Sweet Potatoes:

  • 2-3 lbs sweet potatoes cut into chunks
  • 2 tablespoons ghee or avocado oil
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ teaspoon salt


  • Preheat the oven to 400 F.
  • Peel the sweet potatoes and cut the sweet potatoes into the desired shape.
  • Place the slices in a mound on a baking baking sheet, pour over remaining ingredients then mix every thing together with your hands to evenly coat the slices. Spread the sweet potatoes into an even, single layer.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes, until the sweet potatoes are fork tender. Enjoy!



I highly recommend the jewel or garnet variety of yam.
Be sure chop the sweet potatoes the same size for even cooking.
