Roasted Sweet Potatoes In Coconut Oil

Roasted sweet potatoes are one of my favorite side dishes. They pair well with many of my favorite meals, they’re rich in flavor and are high in nutrients.Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Oven roasted sweet potatoes make for a tasty side dish! They pair well with many meals like baked chicken, roast, pork loin and many other savory meals.

Sweet potatoes are rich in flavor and are high in vitamin A, vitamin C, B vitamins, magnesium and potassium. There are many ways to add this delicious healthy food to your diet! I love sweet potato casserole, baked sweet potato crackers (grain free), baked sweet potatoes (sometimes we stuff them with goodies) and roasted sweet potatoes in coconut oil.

Roasted sweet potatoes are easy to prepare and can be seasoned in a variety of ways. My family likes them seasoned with rosemary and sea salt and I like to sweeten them up with cinnamon! You can use any oil to bake your sweet potatoes in but I always use coconut oil. It gives the sweet potatoes a lovely sweet coconut flavor. Plus, coconut oil is the healthiest fat to cook with!

However you decide to season your roasted sweet potatoes, I’m sure they’ll be a huge hit at your dinner table!

    Do you have any tricks for cutting sweet potatoes? I love cut up roasted sweet potatoes and the only thing that stops me from making them is that sweet potatoes are so hard to cut!

    I LOVE sweet potatoes!! Anyway you can fix them. But could never find out how to roast them. Have had them and tried everything to find the recipe. Thank you so much for this one. As soon as I get to the store…It says serves 4…lol…don’t think it will here!

    Great recipe, but why do so many people confuse sweet potatoes with yams? They are totally different.

    I’ve been wanting a recipe for some frozen cubed sweet potato I bought a few weeks ago. I’m hoping this will work well. Do you think I need to add any time if the sweet potato cubes are frozen?

    Why do you peel them? Aren’t there vitamins in the skin too? I usually do not peal potatoes, just scrub and eat the skin too when I bake them. They do look prettier when peeled though!
