Roasted sweet potatoes or yams (sweet potatoes vs yams) are a quick and easy recipe that can be a side dish for breakfast, lunch or dinner. This recipe is seasoned with maple syrup for a sweet side dish. I do not like marshmallow, so I use this recipe at the holidays and my whole family LOVES them!! I can never make enough!

I adapt this recipe when I want a more savory dish than sweet. To make this dish savory, I substitute rosemary or turmeric in place of the maple syrup. 

5 mins 

30-35 min 

40 mins 


  • 3 large sweet potatoes or yams, peeled and diced into 1 inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons oil (I prefer coconut oil, but avocado oil or olive oil or whatever oil you like will work too)

  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the oil, maple syrup, cinnamon, salt and pepper.

  4. Spread potatoes in an even layer onto prepared pan.
