Honey-Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Honey-Cinnamon Dip


Sweet Potatoes

  • 2 large or 3 medium/large sweet potatoes (technically I used red yams), washed, peeled, and trimmed into 1-inch chunks

  • 3 to 4 tablespoons coconut oil in liquid state (or another oil, i.e. olive, vegetable, canola)
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon, or to taste
  • Pinch salt and pepper, optional and to taste
  • Pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, ginger, allspice; all optional and to taste

Creamy Honey-Cinnamon Dip

  • Heaping 1/3 cup plain or vanilla Greek yogurt or sour cream (light versions okay)
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon, or to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with a Silpat or spray with cooking spray; set aside.  We use professional grade non-stick Silpat Click Here

Sweet Potatoes

  1. Slice potatoes into 1-inch chunks and put into a gallon-sized Ziploc.
  2. Open bag and add honey, oil, cinnamon, optional salt and pepper to taste, optional seasonings to taste, seal bag, and toss potatoes to coat. Really manipulate the potatoes around inside the bag, pushing the ones on the top to the bottom and vice versa, to equally distribute the honey, oil, and spices.
  3. Using your hands, transfer potatoes to baking tray, arranged in a single flat layer and not touching, if possible. Tip – Don’t dump potatoes from bag onto baking tray because excess marinade will get onto baking tray and it will be prone to burning.
  4. Save any remaining marinade in Ziploc bag to be added halfway through baking.
  5. Bake for about 20 to 25 minutes, remove from oven, and flip potatoes over using tongs.
  6. If desired and if there’s extra marinade, lightly and evenly drizzle potatoes with what remains from Ziploc bag.
  7. Return tray to oven and bake for about 15 to 20 more minutes, or until fork-tender and done. Keep a close eye on potatoes in the final moments of baking so they don’t burn. Baking times will vary based on oven variances, the potatoes and how thick they’re cut, how full the tray is, and how well done you like them.
  8. Optionally (but recommended) serve potatoes with dip or your favorite condiments as soon as they’re cool enough to eat.

Creamy Honey-Cinnamon Dip

  1. Add all dip ingredients to a small bowl and whisk until smooth and combined.
  2. Transfer to ramekin if desired for serving.
  3. Dip will keep airtight in the fridge for up to 1 week.
