Since I've already talked about the benefits of sweet potatoes in previous posts (links below) I will only say that I LOVE sweet potatoes and that they are super healthy for you! I love them so much that as soon as I open the fridge THAT is the only thing I want to eat. Cold sweet potatoes. I eat cold baked sweet potatoes out of the refrigerator at 5 o'clock in the morning as a pre workout snack or as a post workout breakfast. I'll throw them in a ziplock bag and drag them around in my purse for a quick snack. I love them with peanut butter, raisins, apple sauce, and cinnamon. I like them with beans, creole spice, and tahini sauce. I love them with tofu, broccoli, and quinoa. I love them in soups or loaded like a baked russet potato. I pretty much love any form of sweet potatoes. Baked, boiled, steamed, microwaved or however it is prepared. I love me some sweet 'taters (except for when my mom boils them in super salty water to tone down the sweetness... I don't like that. Eat them SWEET the way God made them!) Mostly, though, I like them baked with a bit of cinnamon and salt. Sometimes when I'm feeling fancy, I bake them twice! It's a real treat. Adios!

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat even to 450 degrees F.
  2. Clean, peel, and bake white sweet potatoes for 45-60 minutes (or until a fork slides easily through the potatoes). Let cool.
  3. When sweet potatoes have cooled enough to handle, slice into rounds.
  4. Lightly spritz a baking sheet with baking spray.
  5. Spread sweet potato rounds onto the pan.
  6. Lightly spray the tops of the potatoes and lightly sprinkle with salt and cinnamon (to taste).
  7. Bake the sweet potato rounds for about 10-15 minutes or until golden brown with a bit of crispy-ness. Flip and bake for an additional 10 minutes or until the undersides are also golden brown and crispy.
  8. Let cool 5 to 10 minutes before serving. Need a dip for your sweet potato rounds? Try out this silky date-sweetened tofu cream sauce!
