4 ½ cups sweet potatoes (approximately two sweet potatoes, we prefer Garnet for their extra sweet and honey like flavor)
2 teaspoons coconut oil
4 teaspoons honey
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
¼ teaspoon salt (or additional to taste)
Preheat oven to 350.
Peel and cut sweet potatoes into ½ inch cubes.
Mix honey, salt, coconut oil, cayenne pepper & cinnamon in a bowl. Warming the honey and coconut oil before use will help ease the mixing process. Add cut sweet potatoes to the mixture and toss until they are evenly coated.
Spread sweet potatoes so they are almost flat on a non-stick pan.
Place in the oven and cook between 30-35 minutes, opening oven and mixing once around the 15 minute mark.
Remove the potatoes from the oven, allow them to chill slightly and enjoy.
Storage: These delightful bites will stay in your fridge for up to three days.
