  • 2-3 large sweet potatoes or yams, cubed, skin- on (I just prefer them this way! feel free to peel if that's your thing)
  • 1-2 tsp avocado or olive oil, I use Chosen Foods avocado oil for evenly coating the potatoes
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp cinnamon (optional)
  • 1/2-1 tsp coarse sea salt


  • Preheat oven to 400. Cube your sweet potatoes (or cut them into fries if desired). Toss with oil, chili powder, paprika, and cinnamon. Spread evenly onto a parchment-lined baking sheet, being careful not to crowd or layer the potatoes.
  • Bake them for 30 minutes on the middle rack and DO NOT FLIP OR TOSS. Leave them. Check them around 25 mins and toss if you see they are getting too browned on the bottom.
  • Once cooked, remove from the oven and sprinkle with sea salt. Enjoy!
